ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the significance of humanitarian aviation as a primary constituent of humanitarian assistance. Humanitarian aviation is considered one of the vital elements of increasing access to humanitarian challenges. It points out that humanitarian aviation providers' scope and size face severe limitations in shaping the humanitarian aviation trend. However, it is problematic that there is no single industry leader providing a sustainable solution to humanitarian access problems.
