Plane Talk - Airlines donate hold space for humanitarian aid
Chaitan Jain from IATA explains the contribution that airlines make when humanitarian aid is required.
Airlink make the connections necessary between the airline and the humanitarian relief to respond to rapid-onset disasters, including the earthquake in Haiti, the tsunami in Japan, Hurricane Sandy and numerous tornadoes in the US, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, and the Ebola crisis in West Africa.
