Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ leading airline, has partnered with Airlink, a global nonprofit organization that delivers critical aid to communities in times of crisis, to improve disaster response in the Asia-Pacific region.
The partnership will see Cebu Pacific providing airlift and logistical support to Airlink’s NGO partners in the region. Airlink will also be working with Cebu Pacific to develop training programs for NGO staff on disaster preparedness and response.
“Disaster relief and humanitarian assistance are areas that Cebu Pacific has actively contributed to and supported over the years,” said Alex Reyes, Cebu Pacific’s Chief Strategy Officer. “We have always believed that air transport allows for an efficient and quick mobilization of necessary resources, both personnel and cargo, in responding to disasters or crises.”
“This partnership with Cebu Pacific is a significant step forward for Airlink,” said Jennifer Torner, Humanitarian Programs Manager for Asia and the Pacific for Airlink. “It will allow us to reach more communities in need and deliver aid more effectively.”
The partnership between Cebu Pacific and Airlink is part of a wider effort to improve disaster response in the Asia-Pacific region. In recent years, the region has been hit by a number of devastating disasters, including earthquakes, floods, and typhoons. These disasters have displaced millions of people and caused billions of dollars in damage.
The partnership between Cebu Pacific and Airlink is a positive step towards improving disaster response in the region. By working together, the two organizations can help to ensure that affected communities receive the aid they need when they need it most.
