Relief Flights and Disaster Relief Logistics

Lynden Air Cargo’s Hercules aircraft have been on the scene providing relief flights at some of the world’s worst disasters. From earthquakes in Haiti, to floods in Alaskan communities, to hurricanes in the Caribbean, our people and aircraft have answered the call. Working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Red Cross and the U.S. Military, we have delivered emergency vehicles, portable hospitals, food, water, and relief workers to ravaged areas like Haiti and Indonesia.
