Boeing, Nok Air partner for humanitarian aid flight

Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Nok Air have partnered to launch a special humanitarian aid mission to Thailand, the companies said.

With the help of the international non-profit organization Vital Voices, whose mission is to invest in and empower women leaders, the airline´s 22nd next-generation 737-800 will transport and deliver nearly 30 boxes full of relief items including clothes and school supplies.

The items are headed to The Children´s Advocacy Center Thailand (ACT), a non-profit organization dedicated to better the lives of abused children and youth in Thailand. Representatives from ACT will deliver the aid to impacted children and youth throughout Thailand.

Nok Air is a Bangkok-based low-cost carrier that operates an all-Boeing fleet. The airline currently has two additional next-generation 737s on order with Boeing. Nok Air is a 737 MAX customer with eight 737 MAX 8 airplanes on order.
