Ebola Response: Air Bridge Support

Commitment by

Airlink

In 2014, in response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, which is largest outbreak in history and the first in the region, Airlink committed to transporting between 100 and 500 tons of material aid cargo over the course of several flights by year-end. To do so, Airlink will leverage its airline, logistics, and non-profit partnerships. For example, Airlink's airline partners will provide discounted or donated services, non-profit partners will provide humanitarian expertise and critical cargo, and financial backers will support the remaining costs. As a result, approximately 10,000 aid workers in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea will have access to personal protective equipment, thereby enabling them to safely treat patients.
