Mexican airlines join in support of natural disasters
Aeromexico and Volaris collaborate with the National Disaster and Emergency Assistance Committee (CADENA), to support their members with round flights.
In the case of Volaris, the airline supported 1,500 people affected in Abaco, Bahamas, by Hurricane Dorian, which reached winds of up to 300 km / h. Volaris is distinguished for being a Socially Responsible Company and committed to humanitarian action, which is why, given the urgency of help in Abaco, it managed the round flights of the members of the CADENA GO Team, specialized in rescue within collapsed structures and white waters, as well as high altitude rescue, in confined spaces, civil protection and other emergencies.
The airline supported the mission with the transfer of three rescuers and a psychologist to reach the Bahamas, via Miami. The GO Team of Chain delivered 418 solar lamps and provided physical and mental assistance to 83 people.
Hurricane Dorian ravaged the Bahamas in early September and has been the strongest weather phenomenon in whipping the archipelago. Its impact resulted in at least one million people being displaced and around 13,000 homes were lost.
Recently Aeromexico also announced a partnership with CADENA, with which the eagle knight airline will donate plane tickets to facilitate immediate attention in cases of natural disasters and humanitarian crises; It will also promote prevention and risk management programs in populations most prone to natural phenomena.
CADENA will collaborate with Aeroméxico in giving workshops to collaborators of the company in the field of Civil Protection and Risk Management, Humanitarian Aid and Social Awareness, to strengthen the capacities before a contingency and train humanitarian leaders.
