Emirates pledges funds to bushfire relief in Australia

Posted 16 January 2020 · Add Comment

Emirates today announced its contributions to bushfire relief in Australia.

 

The airline will be donating 10% of all EmiratesRED sales on every flight from 17 January until 16 February 2020 and matching this dollar-for-dollar. The proceeds will go towards the recovery and rebuilding efforts taking place in the communities affected across Australia.

 

"We are deeply saddened by the bushfires in Australia and the impact they have had on families, communities, wildlife and businesses across the country. There's been an outpouring of support from all over the world for Australia, including from the UAE. At Emirates we'd like to do our part not only through monetary contributions, but also to use our global reach to help to maintain awareness and support, and to drive donations for recovery and rebuilding efforts," said Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline

 

"Emirates remains committed to Australia and its people who have welcomed us into their home for over 20 years. We will be working closely with relevant organisations to contribute funds to those who need it most. Emirates is also waiving flight change fees for residents affected by the fires, many of whom we know have had their lives greatly impacted already."
