We’ve worked hand in hand with humanitarians for a long time now and therefore; we know the humanitarian world you work in. On October 8. 1947, our founders chartered a Dakota to fly missionaries from Amsterdam to Entebbe. On board were fifteen missionaries headed for Uganda. By choosing air travel over ships, the time and money the missionaries saved could be reinvested in their projects in Africa; helping those who need it most.Getting to know humanitarian aid workersTwo years later, Raptim was founded. Monthly charter flights to Africa were quickly established – followed by regular charter flights to Asia in 1966. Due to Raptim’s rapid growth, a network of specialized travel agents was invoked to regulate global operations. From the 1970s onwards, our passengers started approaching us with more uncommon needs. We began working and learning together with humanitarians as well as other like-minded organizations on a closer level. Through the years we’ve continued learning. Our close collaboration with experienced humanitarians on a day to day basis has enabled us to understand humanitarian work like no other. We can proudly say that humanitarianism is in our genes. We always try to add value through our experience and legacy by providing humanitarians with the best possible travel care.
