Coyne Airways and Air Charter Service announces support to charity scheme ‘War Child’

Oct 28, 2016: Coyne Airways and Air Charter Service (ACS) announced a scheme to back War Child, a charity which supports children affected by conflict.

Coyne and ACS will donate an agreed amount per transaction on behalf of their customers, starting from November.

Customers will be given the opportunity to match the donation on a quarterly basis.

“The air cargo business supports many charities but none specifically aimed at helping children in conflict areas” said Larry Coyne, CEO, Coyne Airways, speaking on the second day of The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA)’s Air Cargo Forum.

“By tying the giving to a transaction such as a booking, a landing, or a flight, at a rate they are comfortable with, we take the guesswork out of how much to give and we are committing to give for a minimum period.”

Chris Leach, Chairman of ACS, added, “At ACS we support a number of charities each year, but when Larry brought War Child to my attention we felt we should dig that little bit deeper.

“There are some great people in this industry of ours and if more of us came together we could make a really significant impact.”

War Child is the only specialist charity for children in conflict, delivering high-impact programmes that are rebuilding lives across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.

“It’s brilliant that Coyne Airways has chosen to support us; we’re very grateful and want to say thank you to all involved,” said Rob Williams, CEO, War Child UK.

“The funds generously raised by Coyne and their customers will go towards life changing interventions for children affected by conflict – providing hope for the future for thousands of children in some of the most difficult places on earth.
