Conceptualized in 2009, Airlink was established by aviation professionals serving within the ISTAT Foundation with the express purpose to facilitate a broad partnership between commercial aviation and nonprofit community. The intent of our founders was to utilize commercial aviation capacity on scheduled air carriers to support NGOs in their humanitarian relief efforts – all at relatively low cost to the airlines and nonprofits.

Our first mission - response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti - was a huge success, and set the stage for Airlink to become the major player in disaster response logistics and transportation that it is today.
