Abyssinia Flight Services Aircraft Crashes

A United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) flight managed by the World Food Programme (WFP) and operated by Abyssinia Flight Services, a private aviation company, crashed on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 27, 2021, while transporting passengers from Jigjiga to Dire Dawa. The aircraft was carrying four people when it departed from Jigjiga in the early afternoon and went down barely half an hour following takeoff. Authorities lay the blame on bad weather conditions, which caused the plan to crash into a hillside in East Harerge, Haromaya. None of the people onboard were injured and further investigation is underway to identify the root cause of the accident, according to the WFP.
