Description of Requirement:
1. The United Nations is seeking several Aircraft types that may operate in three main regions: East Asia, Africa and Middle East.

The UN is also seeking multiple Aircraft types that will not be dedicated to the UN to conduct troop rotations in specific routes where the dedicated Aircraft cannot operate. Sufficient lead notice shall be provided to the operator to ensure timely provision of the non-dedicated aircraft.
2. Vendors will be able to propose multiple Aircraft types for the complete solution satisfying all required troop rotations in all regions or vendors may choose to provide partial solutions which will allow for split awards. Vendors will be allowed to partner with other Air Operators to provide for the complete solution.
3. For the dedicated aircraft, the operator may decide on the Main Operations Base (MOB) for the proposed aircraft, but it is anticipated that rotations will be back to back to minimize positioning costs to the MOB. The operator/s should, on notice, be able to fly in/out of the following Missions, to:
a. United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo- MONUSCO
b. United Nations Interim Security Force for Abyei, Sudan/South Sudan – UNISFA

4. All aircraft must meet the requirements and be equipped as follows:
a. Multi Engine Turbine using jet A-1 fuel.
b. The dedicated aircraft and its back up shall be required to transport not more than 300 passengers at any given time. The baggage entitlement is 100 kgs per passenger which includes 92 kgs of checked-in and 8 kgs of carry-on baggage. Average adult passenger weight of 80 kgs must be assumed. The cargo hold volume must be capable of accommodating 0.5 m3 per passenger’s checked-in luggage.

5. It is expected that the dedicated aircraft will be utilized to a minimum of 1500 - 2000 flight hours per year. The non-dedicated aircraft are expected to be utilized a minimum of 800 flight hours per year.
6. The Request for Proposal will require the Operators to provide an all-inclusive cost per flight hour for the type of aircraft proposed. Operators will also be required to provide the expected fuel consumption rate for the aircraft proposed. The reimbursement level for fuel will be up to the consumption rate declared in the proposal. This factor shall be used to determine the aircraft efficiency.
