Actor and Pilot Harrison Ford Becomes Airlink Spokesperson

"A Pilot Friend Made Me Aware Of The Work Airlink Does And I Became Eager To Be Involved"

Actor Harrison Ford is a new spokesman for rapid response disaster relief nonprofit Airlink.

Airlink builds partnerships with global airlines and air freight carriers, enabling it to provide free or subsidized air transport to a network of over 130 disaster response and humanitarian relief organizations. The Salvation Army, Project HOPE, World Central Kitchen, and MedShare are among Airlink’s partners relying on it to help transport responders and humanitarian supplies to disaster impacted communities worldwide.

“A pilot friend made me aware of the work Airlink does and I became eager to be involved,” said Ford, “Airlink and its aviation sector supporters partner with non-profit humanitarian aid groups to bring comfort, compassion and hope to thousands of people in desperate need in the U.S. and around the world.”

Since January, Airlink has delivered 7.5 million pieces of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), over 300,000 pounds of relief supplies, and medical volunteers to COVID-19-impacted communities on three continents.

In addition to responding to COVID-19, this year Airlink has moved volunteer responders, humanitarian aid workers, and relief supplies to Beirut in response to the recent explosion of a stockpile of ammonium nitrate; to Texas, Louisiana, Alabama and Florida in response to hurricanes Laura, Sally and Delta; to Iowa following a derecho; and to Australian communities recovering from bushfires.

“Harrison has long been an aviation advocate and as a pilot has participated in many aviation based humanitarian efforts. We are a great match for one another,” said Airlink President and CEO Steven J. Smith.

“It is an honor to have Harrison involved with promoting the work of Airlink as we and our aviation and nonprofit partners continue to deliver aid to communities impacted by natural and man-made disasters.”
