To help address the problems on delayed crew change that now poses a threat to physical and mental health of seafarers as well as safety of the vessels, Döhle Seafront and its principal, Peter Döhle Schiffahrts-KG, have continued to charter flights to make crew change quite easier.
Through the collaboration between Peter Döhle Schiffahrts-KG, Menzell & Döhle Group, and BTH Business Travel Hamburg and with close coordination with Döhle Seafront, another chartered flight have arrived here in Manila from Hamburg. The chartered flight flew 236 Filipino seafarers home from various companies, who disembarked in Europe after completing their contract. German Ambassador to the Philippines Anke Reiffenstuel and her staff also arrived via the same plane.
The same plane is scheduled to leave again for Hamburg tomorrow, June 28 with a fresh batch of 162 seafarers including those from other companies to relieve those due for replacement.
We are grateful to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) and DFA for their assistance throughout this project.
