The UN is seeking information regarding the provision of a Long Term Charter Service (6 months + optional 6 months) on either a Stand-By (non-exclusive) basis or a Dedicated/Guaranteed Availability Basis, for Passenger transport, Air Ambulance service or Medevac capabilities, to be used in support of United Nations in the West Africa region. Air Operators are requested to provide information on both options for a Stand-by and Dedicated/Guaranteed Availability arrangement, or just one option - based on its capacity.

Should the UN proceed with a Dedicated/Guaranteed Availability arrangement, the proposed Main Operations Base (MOB) for the proposed aircraft is expected to be in Accra, Ghana. However, the Operator may propose one or multiple MOBs for additional aircraft (as back up). The proposed aircraft
should be dedicated exclusively for the United Nations tasks and should be able to fly, with short notices,
within and in/out of all the countries as and when required.

Should the UN proceed a Standby/On-Call arrangement, interested operators may decide on the Main Operations Bases (MOB) for their proposed aircraft, the operator should, on a short notice, be able to fly within and in/out of the following Countries and countries en-route.

The Operator must be able to provide the following services:
• Passenger Carriage, Air Ambulance services, Medevac in support of the United Nations. The
Aircraft must be appropriately equipped with Air ambulance operations (medical equipment and personnel).
The operator will perform Air ambulance services for the United Nations to medical facilities in near by
locations as designated by the UN.
• Pax/VIP or Medevac services, or the combination of both services, supporting the above on behalf
of the United Nations.
Technical Specifications:
• Aircraft should have full lavatory facilities.
• Aircraft and crew must be certified for RVSM operations, if applicable.
• Multi Engine Jet or high speed Turbo Prop.

• The Carrier is required to be self-sufficient when tasked outside of the Mission area. Carriers are
required to have the back office capability to secure and pay for their own over-flight and landing permits,
ground handling, Jet-A1 fuel and crew accommodation in/out of mission area flights.
