First FedEx Flight Direct to Haiti with Relief Supplies Departs


The first FedEx Express direct flight to Haiti departs from Miami International Airport with food and water for the Haiti Earthquake victims. The FedEx Express Boeing freighter will deliver up to 40,000 pounds of relief supplies donated by local, Florida nonprofit organizations. Juan Cento, FedEx Express President, Latin America and Caribbean Division will be on-site for media interviews.

The flight left on Sunday, January 17, 2010 at approximately 9:30am EST from the FedEx Express Gateway Hub.

In response to the earthquake in Haiti, FedEx is providing more than $1 million in cash and in-kind support to several global charities. The support will be used by the following designated relief organizations: the American Red Cross, Heart to Heart International, Direct Relief International, World Vision, and Water Missions International. Over the coming days, several hundred tons of supplies – including water purification systems, food, medical aid, and more – will be delivered to support disaster relief efforts on the ground in Port-au-Prince and the surrounding areas.

I have been with this company for 30 years and have never seen it lack the heart to help others in need. Whether it is finding a lost kitten that flys from Germany to the US by accident and getting it back home where it belongs, or reaching out to help others hit by adversity, FXE and it's op-cos always open their hands and hearts to help. This is the best company to work for and we should all be proud of the humanitarian efforts shown by all of our employees, in times of crisis and each and every day.
