AirAsia offers free aid delivery to Typoon Nesat victims

AirAsia Malaysia has offered to provide free delivery service of aid from Malaysians for victims of Typhoon Nesat in the
Philippines.

A statement issued by the airline company yesterday said it would allocate cargo space on its daily flight from Kuala Lumpur to Clark in Manila for the purpose.

“Those who are interested to help, including non-governmental organisations, aid and humanitarian agencies, as well as the public, can send particulars on the aid they are giving to [email protected],” it said.

AirAsia has a daily direct flight from Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu to Manila.

More than 100,000 residents in the Philippines have been ordered to evacuate to safer ground following heavy rain and strong wind of up to 170km per hour which lashed through the country last Tuesday. Losses have been estimated at
RM642 million.
