Rescue Workers for Japan Earthquake Receive Donated Flights Through AirLink Program

The International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading (ISTAT) is using their AirLink program to coordinate moving a team of 8 rescue workers from Seattle to Japan on Monday morning March 14, 2011 on Hawaiian Airlines. The relief workers are with a group called Pathfinders and will work with USAF and USAID. Hawaiian Airlines responded to the need posted on the AirLink website and then fully donated the seats through AirLink's program. Aerobridge helped coordinate the effort as well.

AirLink has used Aidmatrix' International Transportation Donations Management module extensively during the Haiti earthquake disaster and recovery to coordinate matching transportation needs and transportation providers in an effort to move relief workers and supplies into the disaster zone as quickly as possible.
