NATA Members Mobilize for Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts

Washington, DC, September 4, 2019 – The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) recognizes the aviation business community for their dedication and tireless efforts in providing relief to those impacted by Hurricane Dorian.

“NATA would like to thank our members for their incredible response to the destruction wreaked by Hurricane Dorian. As we see time and time again, many have been mobilizing within their communities to collect supplies and prepare support for when it will be safe enough to go into affected areas to provide relief. My heart goes out to the people of the Bahamas—a place that is dear to me–and all those in the path of Hurricane Dorian. The aviation business community’s overwhelming generosity and selfless dedication to service in times of need is inspiring, and we are pleased to serve as a resource for connecting our members with those in need,” said NATA Chief Operations Officer Timothy Obitts.

NATA has set up a Hurricane Resources page on our website where links to storm tracking and safety information is available. Additionally, if you are looking for ways to contribute to the relief efforts, NATA will be highlighting the work of our members and how to get involved on the website and through our social media channels.

If you are coordinating any relief efforts for those impacted by Hurricane Dorian and would like them to be shared, or if there is anything we can do in addition to help support our affected members, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at info@nata.aero or by calling 800-808-NATA.
