Ross Aviation donates ramp fees to humanitarian support for UkraineGo back to news
On March 24th, Ross Aviation donated all ramp fees collected at its locations within the Continental United States and Alaska to humanitarian support for Ukraine. The company-wide effort came in response to the growing need for compassionate help for the people of Ukraine as they endure the ongoing Russian invasion. In addition, Ross Aviation will continue to waive all ramp fees for documented relief flights to Ukraine, which the company began doing earlier this month.
The ramp fees collected on March 24th have been earmarked specifically for Ukraine donation and will be divided equally between UNICEF and the International Committee of the Red Cross. Both organizations are recognized worldwide for the humanitarian support they provide.
“Our leadership team, including our general managers at every location, came together to decide on a way we could do something meaningful to help the people of Ukraine during these terribly difficult times” said Brian Corbett, CEO of Ross Aviation. “Donating our ramp fees was a way our company, as well as customers who visited us on March 24th, would be able to provide a meaningful level of assistance to those in need. It’s something we’re all very proud to be a part of.”
In addition to donating ramp fees on the 24th, Ross Aviation locations had displays and handouts that featured QR-codes for both UNICEF and the Red Cross which enabled visitors to also donate directly to either organization.
