American Airlines partners with Deloitte to deliver 40,000 pieces of critical PPE equipment to support thousands of our frontline heroes in New York City. Both companies are working together to deliver much needed medical supplies to hard hit NYC.
Deloitte is donating it credits from previously canceled flights to transport the PPE supplies from Shanghai to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City aboard one of American Airlines’s cargo-only flights.
“We’re all fighting this virus together, and American is proud to leverage our long-standing corporate partnership with Deloitte to make a difference in New York,” said Doug Parker, Chairman and CEO of American. “Thanks to Deloitte’s ingenuity and generosity, these critical supplies will help safeguard and support those working on the frontline to care for others.”
“We are grateful to collaborate with American to help transport life-saving medical supplies to the hospitals on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis,” said Punit Renjen, Deloitte Global CEO. “Deloitte’s purpose is to make an impact that matters. By donating our unused ticket credits, we are able to make a small but meaningful impact in the global fight against this pandemic.”
“It all started when American reached out to see if we had any shipping needs, and the ask couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Mark Kostegan, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer of Mount Sinai Health System. “Thanks to the generosity of Deloitte and the coordination of American Airlines, we’ll be receiving 40,000 medical gowns to support our health care heroes on the front lines in their continued fight against this pandemic.”
