CATHAY Pacific launched a series of relief efforts to benefit the victims of supertyphoon Yolanda, which includes a company-wide campaign and additional initiatives for its Yolanda-stricken staff and their immediate families.

The airline arranged chartered flights carrying 66,261 kilos worth of relief goods, which were transported from the French government and will be distributed through the Department of Social Welfare and Development in Cebu. A second chartered flight also brought over 67,440 kg worth of relief goods from New York to Manila. In addition, two more chartered flights are expected to arrive in Cebu, transporting donations from Frankfurt and Hong Kong.

Cathay Pacific also donated 5,518 sets of sleep suits and 3,900 blankets from its inflight stock, which were sent through Cathay Pacific cargo and distributed through the Philippine National Red Cross.

The company also prepared inflight fundraising activities to allow its passengers to contribute to the campaign even while in transit. The airline also conducted relief operations among its staff. (PR)
