Please join us for a webinar focused on how nonprofit organizations can prepare to transport humanitarian supplies by air in the aftermath of an emergency. Airlink recently worked with a expert consultant to develop a ten-step guidance note for nonprofits, designed to facilitate more efficient, effective and streamlined movement of cargo. By building understanding of what will be required when a disaster occurs, it is hoped that Airlink and its partners can improve response times and achieve better humanitarian outcomes for affected people. 

Airlink staff will walk partners through each of the ten steps within the guidance note, which will be shared with participants in advance of the webinar. There will also be the opportunity for Q&A at the end of the session. Please note that there are two opportunities to participate in this one-hour session; this is not a two-part webinar.

Learning outcomes:
  • Increased awareness of key requirements when moving humanitarian supplies by air;
  • Enhanced understanding of the specific responsibilities of nonprofit organizations seeking to transport humanitarian cargo; 
  • Identify practical steps that organizations can take to increase preparedness to move humanitarian supplies by air, including actions that can be taken in advance of an emergency. 
Airlink connects nonprofits and the aviation sector to deliver disaster responders and supplies in the wake of humanitarian crises worldwide. Working in partnership with 35+ commercial and charter airlines and 80+ nonprofit organizations, Airlink has responded to 53 humanitarian crises, transporting over 4,700 aid workers and 2.8 million pounds of relief supplies, in support of communities in need.

Airlink would like to thank the Arconic Foundation for funding this initiative, which would not have been possible without their generosity.
