Air India SATS Airport Services Private Limited (AISATS), the leading ground handling agency, has partnered with Regional Cancer Centre to establish a ‘Blood Donation Forum’ so as to create a platform to address future requirements for donors.

The initiative was launched in the presence of Union MoS for HRD Shashi Tharoor, CPI state secretary Pannian Raveendran and other dignitaries the other day. Pannyan Raveendran inaugurated the launching ceremony.

Shashi Tharoor extended his support to the initiative undertaken by AISATS. BJP national secretary P K Krishnadas,  Rahul Easwar and others also attended the event to express their support for the noble cause.

The Blood Donation Forum is a comprehensive database of donors for the Regional Cancer Centre (RCC), the internationally recognised institution for cancer research, diagnosis and treatment. With the support of the forum, the Regional Cancer Centre will be able to match its requirements for donors with the AISATS’ donor list. AISATS community support initiative witnessed enthusiastic participation from its employees and most of the 855 employees at the Thiruvananthapuram Centre were incorporated in the list.

AISATS has a track record of supporting various social causes and has previously conducted blood donation camps at Bengaluru and Hyderabad.  Last year, the T’Puram centre had successfully organised a support programme for a children’s home.

AISATS is a 50:50 joint venture between Air India Limited and SATS Ltd., a leading gateway services and food solutions provider in Asia. As part of the Indian Government’s initiative to upgrade its airports to world-class facilities and attract more airlines to fly into India, AISATS was formed in 2008. AISATS provides comprehensive solutions to its customer airlines in international airports at Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad, Mangalore and Thiruvananthapuram.
