FURTHER UPDATE: It’s always good to have a happy ending restore your faith in humanity, and this story certainly does. Nikos Loukas has announced a pledge by Monarch Airlines to fly eleven pallets of supplies gathered to the island of Kos to help refugees.
MONARCH AIRLINES HAS OFFERED TO SEND ALL DONATIONS FROM THE UK TO KOS ON THE 7TH OCTOBER FOR FREE. THAT MEANS THAT A TOTAL OF 11 PALLETS OF ITEMS INCLUDING FOOD, CLOTHING, WATER AND SLEEPING BAGS WILL BE DELIVERED TO KOS KINDNESS CHARITY!!!–Nikos Loukas, Inflight Feed
UPDATE: Sadly, lacking sufficient support, Nikos Loukas has decided to abandon his plans to bring supplies for refugees to Kos. It must be noted that before making this difficult decision, Loukas did receive a commitment of 1,000 sleeping bags from British Airways and children’s kits from KLM. Their offers of support, along with the other commitments made previously, show the best of aviation. The sad conclusion, however, reflects the challenges of managing the refugee crisis in Europe. We can only hope for better days for all those affected.
