As a corporate initiative, Amerijet has opened its facilities in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Atlanta and New York to collect bags of rice, dried beans and tents to assist with the relief efforts.  All donated goods will be transported free of charge to Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  Amerijet has teamed up with World Fuel Services to donate the flight between Miami and Port-au-Prince.

Amerijet's warehouse and offices in Haiti are operational and staffed to resume normal cargo operations.  Due to government restrictions, commercial cargo is prohibited and Amerijet is only accepting relief supplies for its scheduled flights to Haiti.
