Our Leadership

Airlink’s Ambassadors are made up of aviation industry, logistics, and NGO leaders who actively champion the work of Airlink.  Utilizing their subject matter expertise, Ambassadors help Airlink to the best of their ability during and in-between disasters to secure critical funding and aid in developing partnerships across a multitude of sectors to support responses.

Those who join us as Ambassadors are committed to helping Airlink, and our NGO partners, deliver aid and responders to communities impacted by disasters and other humanitarian crises worldwide on an entirely voluntary basis. Their experience and advocacy are critical in helping Airlink increase its capacity to serve humanitarian organizations and positively impact communities recovering from crises.
