Hurricane Dorian | Airlink

The third and final Google-supported grant in The Bahamas went to Airlink’s Hurricane Dorian – Sustainable Last Mile Airlift to coordinate and subsidize air logistics for humanitarian organizations. Airlink worked with Bahamasair and other inter-island carriers to support 473 flights between Nassau, Freeport, Marsh Harbour and Treasure Cay, helping organizations access hard-to-procure flights and, as a result, deliver aid to those directly affected by the hurricane.
