BA offer to fly aid to Haiti
January 16th, 2010 by elisa

British Airways has offered aid agencies an aircraft to fly emergency supplies and equipment to earthquake hit Haiti.

A Boeing 747 with up to 50 tonnes capacity of cargo is standing by to fly out today, crewed by volunteer pilots and cabin crew. The airline has also pledged £300,000 from its UNICEF Change For Good passenger donations scheme along with paying the £250,000 cost of the aircraft including fuel costs.

BA chief executive Willie Walsh said: “The situation in Haiti is desperate and we must do what we can to help. We have a Boeing 747 crewed and ready to fly and volunteer staff from across the airline prepared to support the rescue effort. Time is of the essence and we must move swiftly to help those devastated by this disaster.”
