As the cases of COVID-19 virus keep increasing globally, British Airways has joined the response against Covid-19 with a company-wide taskforce to the rescue.
Members of the airline’s task force will bring their skills and expertise to communities across the UK to help the fight against the COVID-19 virus.
British Airways has significantly reduced the number of its scheduled flights, making available thousands of cabin and flight crew with more time and appetite to volunteer.
The crews’ advanced first aid qualifications, combined with their natural passion for looking after people, means that they can bring both technical training and natural kindness to a range of desperately needed roles for a range of organisations, including the NHS.
Other teams in the airline specialize in the logistics that sit behind getting 800 flights a day to 200 destinations around the world and those skills can also benefit the community-at-large.
Organisations wishing to request COVID-19 help from British Airways can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The novel COVID-19 which originated in Wuhan, China, has been ravaging the world since December, 2020 leading to most airlines reducing or suspending their operations.
Currently, there are over 1 million confirmed cases of the virus in the world with over 54,000 deaths, and more than 200,000 recoveries.
