Both Delta Air Lines and United Airlines have announced their support for the American Red Cross and its response and relief efforts in Hawaii. American Airlines is also offering bonus miles for donations. Maui has seen incredible destruction caused by recent wildfires and compounded by the strong winds of Hurricane Dora, which passed 300 miles south of the Hawaiian Islands. Fires on Maui are still burning and thousands have had to evacuate.

Delta Air Lines Donates $250,000

Delta Air Lines has donated $250,000 to support the relief efforts for the Hawaii fires. This is in addition to the $1 million the carrier pledges annually to the American Red Cross. Delta customers wishing to donate, can here.

United Air Lines Donates $150,000

United Airlines is also making a large donation to Airlink, the American Red Cross, and Hawaii Food Bank. United has also pledged 200,000 MileagePlus miles and will match up to one million more donated by members. You can donate money or. miles here.

American Airlines Offers Bonus Miles for Donations

I can’t find any mention of American Airlines making a sizable donation, but the airline is offering AAdvantage® members the ability to earn ten AAdvantage® bonus miles for every $1 donated to the American Red Cross with a minimum $25 donation. You can donate here.

The photos I’ve seen make Maui look like a fiery hellscape. The normally beautiful and spiritual island has been devastated and desperately needs help.

Anthony’s Take: It’s nice to see the airlines step in to help. I find it a bit odd that American has not (that I could find) made a donation itself, but all three are raising much needed funds and miles.
