IT’S NOT AID IF YOU CAN’T GET IT THERE.

In line with the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality, and independence, Airlink is supporting NGO partners’ airlift and logistics demands to deliver urgently needed aid and assistance to civilians across the region. Your generous donation today holds the potential to be life-saving.

Airlink is Responding: Civilian Needs Across the Region

In response to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and the broader region, Airlink has coordinated transportation for over 115 tons of critically needed relief supplies, in partnership with 11 nonprofit organizations, to support the immense needs across the region. This includes medicines, medical supplies, shelter items, durable medical equipment, and water, sanitation, and hygiene kits delivered to emergency response programs supporting emergency needs in Gaza, displaced populations in nearby countries, and regional cargo pre-positioning. More than half of this aid was delivered and distributed to partners in Gaza.

Airlink facilitated a charter operation in partnership with International Medical Corps to establish a field hospital in Gaza, significantly increasing available medical care. Airlink is supporting international flights for individuals staffing the field hospital as well.

Airlink’s partner network remains committed to identifying and addressing humanitarian needs in the region. One nonprofit partner, MedGlobal, recently shared an urgent need for additional hospital beds to improve capacity across overwhelmed medical facilities. In response to this, another Airlink partner, Partners for World Health, generously donated dozens of specialized hospital beds that will dramatically increase the number of patients able to receive healthcare. Airlink organized the airlift for this shipment. In their operational lifetime, the beds will support a minimum of 170,000 patients.

In addition to the movement of aid, Airlink has secured passenger travel for more than 40 humanitarian personnel in support of projects across the region, providing emergency medical and mental health care, coordination surge capacity, aid distribution, assessment expertise, and additional specialties. The generous support of Airlink’s airline, logistics, and funding partners have made these operations possible, and Airlink remains committed to supporting civilians and active partners throughout the region for as long as humanitarian needs persist.

Overcoming Barriers To Transporting Aid

Barriers to responding include limited airline capacity to critical airports halting specific routes due to safety. Airlink is collaborating with both international and regional air carrier partners, continuously evolving our concept of operations and assessing their capacity to operate at various airports. Every day Airlink helps our NGO partners overcome the world’s most challenging logistical barriers to delivering aid. 

Airlink recognizes that the conflict is constantly evolving, as are the humanitarian needs in the region. These factors will continue to inform Airlink’s response.
