AmeriJet: Please RESUME service to DOMINICA. We need to ship hurricane relief supplies!

For many years, many in the Caribbean relied on AmeriJet to ship cargo packages from the US to their respective islands.  Dominica was one of the islands that relied on AmeriJet's services, particularly to ship bulk items.  

However, since Sept. 2015, after Hurricane Erica, AmeriJet has ceased all operations to the island.  This has hindered already limited options for family members living in the US to send much needed items to family members residing in Dominica.

Fast forward to Sept. 2017, Dominica was unexpectedly hit by Hurricane Maria, a Category 5 Hurricane.  Maria left Dominica in utter destruction, further crippling an island still trying to rebuild from the devastation it suffered from Hurricane Erica.  One CNN reporter stated that in all his years of visiting sites after (natural) disasters, he has never seen anything like this.  We need help now!

On behalf of American Citizens of Dominican descent, and of Dominicans worldwide, I am asking AmeriJet to consider resuming services to Dominica.  We have limited options to ship much needed food, water and medical supplies to Dominica and AmeriJet's services are desperately needed. Time is truly of the essence!

AmeriJet - one of your principles is quoted as "We are good corporate citizens and we are committed to the communities we serve" ... Now is as good a time as any to be a good corporate citizen as well as humanitarians.  Please resume services - even in a limited capacity - to Dominica.  WE NEED IT DESPERATELY.
