Ecuador Earthquake

Overview

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador on the evening of April 16, knocking down buildings, destroying roads, and creating massive infrastructural issues across the country, as well as taking the lives of 661 people and injuring some 27,700 more. The quake triggered landslides and spurred the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center to issue a warning for the nearby Pacific coastline. 

In coordination with 4 airlines, Airlink provided transportation for more than 50 relief workers and 201,303 pounds of cargo, with aid materials valued at nearly $4,000,000.
