A focus on contributing to local communities in positive ways
Atlas Air partners with JetBlue on 2018 humanitarian mission for Puerto Rico.
We believe in being a good corporate citizen and a good neighbor in the countries and markets we serve around the globe. We act on this belief through a wide variety of humanitarian, educational, and diversity initiatives.
- Our Workforce: We encourage diversity and inclusiveness in our workforce, and the health and safety of all our employees is of paramount importance. Our health and safety track record reflects this commitment. We benchmark our employee compensation and benefits packages to ensure market competitiveness and offer an extensive “total rewards” approach to employee wellness.
- Volunteer and Educational Initiatives: Also reflective of our commitment to social responsibility is our partnership, beginning in 2009, with Junior Achievement. Many of our employees are Junior Achievement volunteers in local schools, with a special focus on socioeconomically disadvantaged students. Our employees also help by collecting school supplies and donations. Through their volunteer work and by sharing their personal and professional experiences and skills, our employees help students make the connection between what they are learning in school and what they will need to succeed in work and life. Our employees are also involved in teaching financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship to young people in the community. Our goal is to empower young people to own their economic success.
- Humanitarian and Disaster Relief: Atlas Air has been proud to provide cost-free charter flights for and make donations to organizations that support disaster relief. For example, during Hurricanes Maria, Irma, and Harvey, we:
- Provided support and assistance to affected communities
- Provided relief to affected pilots, other employees, and their families in Miami and Houston areas
- Made charitable donations for local recovery efforts
- Delivered 117 tons of humanitarian aid to Puerto Rico
- Operated multiple relief charters on behalf of Atlas and our customers
- Delivered supplies with the speed that only airfreight can provide
- Other charities
