EasyJet has announced the launch of an onboard collection to raise funds for UNICEF’s Türkiye and Syria emergency earthquake appeal. Starting on Saturday 11 February, the in-flight collections will take place across EasyJet’s entire network (including Corvera Airport Murcia flights) over the next two weeks.

Funds raised from the collections are earmarked to go directly towards supporting UNICEFs round-the-clock emergency response in the region, helping to provide urgent support to children who have lost their homes, are sleeping rough and have been separated from their families.

According to EasyJet, over the last 10 years customers have raised more than £16 million through onboard donations, helping to protect millions of children around the world from disease and keep them safe during emergencies.

EasyJet has partnered with UNICEF for more than a decade, including a Ukraine appeal last year that raised more than £800,000 for children and their families impacted by the war.

“In the wake of the recent and devastating earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria, we are thankful for partners like EasyJet,” said UNICEF chief executive Jon Sparkes. “These are the most powerful earthquakes to hit the region in almost 100 years and came at the worst possible time for vulnerable children and their families.

“UNICEF and EasyJet are committed to ensuring that those affected receive urgent support. By supporting UNICEF’s appeal, EasyJet is helping to provide access to emergency supplies. Children face extra risks to their health without supplies of food and clean water, and donations from EasyJet and its customers will support UNICEF’s work around the clock to protect the health and welfare of children and their families.”

Michael Brown, director of cabin services, said, “We are deeply saddened to hear about the devastating impact of the earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria and our thoughts are with all those affected. We would like to thank our customers in advance for any onboard donations for UNICEF’s emergency appeal and for their generosity and kindness. 

“Their support will help UNICEF and their volunteers to provide a lifeline in the region for the children and families who have been affected. We’d also like to thank our fantastic crew who make these collections possible, who are always passionate about going the extra mile to raise money for UNICEF and the vital work they do.”
