Among the several initiatives United Airlines has in place to support the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, the airlines’ foundation is matching up to a total of US$50,000 to the American Red Cross for monetary donations that United customers and employees are making to the organization through its International Response Fund at united.com.

In addition, Mileage Plus® members and employees are donating miles to the airline’s nonprofit relief partners as part of its Charity Miles program. United is also working with relief agencies to determine how we can best support air lift humanitarian efforts, including transporting aid workers, food, and water.

“During times of need, it is so important that we use the resources that we have to assist in getting people and supplies in and out of areas where it is needed most,” said Sonya Jackson, president of the United Airlines Foundation. “Nobody understands this more than our customers and employees, who are already offering their assistance in any way they can.”
