The third reason is attributable to Afghanistan’s heightened activity. While our team has historically moved a substantial amount of equipment to Afghanistan, their efforts at present are to gain long term contracts as a result of both an increase in defense allocation, as well as a continuation of the steady reconstruction efforts of foreign assistance agencies, international non-governmental organizations, and commercial entities. The Afghanistan market presented us with an imperative to grow SKA Arabia’s operations and locate full-time staff on the ground in Afghanistan. “With the operations’ tempo progressing very well, very quickly, who knows what the future holds?”
Last and not least, the fourth factor in their success and resulting operational growth comes down to an outstanding team. SKA staff members are proven experts in operating flights and logistical operations in the most challenging regions worldwide. From war zones, regions of political instability, and locations with severely limited infrastructure, their clients recognize the companies’ unique capacity to fulfill these tasks seamlessly.
“This is why clients continually draw on our experience.” With decades of combined personal experience in conflict and post conflict environments working with various international aid organizations from the UN, USAID and multi-national forces throughout the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa, the varied SKA team obviously shares a unique mindset capable of responding to the vagaries of working in transitional countries with efficiency and timeliness; global economic downturn notwithstanding.
