Missionary Flights International's (MFI) mission is to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in partnership with Bible-centered missions by providing reliable transportation and logistical services. MFI carries affiliated mission personnel to and from the countries of Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas. This would include affiliated missionary families, medical teams, and work teams that need to be transported directly to some remote airstrips. The size of the aircraft also allow affiliated mission personnel to accompany their belongings, which eases its clearance through customs once it arrives. Some of these belongings could be pets, building materials, furniture, or tools.
