Typhoon Hagupit Response

On Saturday, December 6, the Category 5 Super Typhoon Hagupit is set to make landfall in the province Eastern Samar, Philippines, and will pass through Manila by Tuesday, December 9. The typhoon's maximum sustained wind speed is 180 mph, making it one of the most powerful typhoons of 2014, and only slightly less powerful than Typhoon Haiyan just one year ago.
 
We are receiving requests to support relief workers and aid to the affected communities from our NGO partners, and we have already helped move four relief workers into place from All Hands Volunteers, Mammoth Medical Missions, Rescue Global, and Team Rubicon in order to perform reconnaissance and damage assessments. 
We are currently requesting donations of miles in order to deploy our partners into the field. To donate, visit airlinkflight.org/donate.
