As Hurricane Dorian moves away from the United States, the storm has left a path of destruction stretching from The Bahamas to North Carolina.

Several of the most prominent players in the travel industry have stepped up and are donating time, money and resources to relief and recovery efforts, including many of the top airlines in the U.S.

For example, American Airlines deployed a flight to Nassau with more than 14,000 pounds of supplies, has expanded fare caps and waived baggage fees to assist impacted customers.

American’s AAdvantage passengers can also earn 10 miles per dollar when they donate to the Red Cross through September 20 on the airline’s donation page.

Delta Air Lines is also jumping in to help by contributing $250,000 to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Dorian relief in the Bahamas. Travelers flying with Delta will be able to donate to the Red Cross through the airline’s page.

In addition, Delta already announced a $1 million grant as an Annual Disaster Giving Program partner.
