Newrest is setting up actions in several countries to help people in need. Through these operations and donations, all collaborators are engaged and supportive with Ukraine.
Support of refugees on their journey from Ukraine to Western Europe
First of all, over three million people fled already from the war in Ukraine to different European countries. A big part of them is using the international train and night train connections across Europe to get to safety. ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) and Newrest help people in need on their journey by providing snacks and support on board of the night trains operated by ÖBB. The war and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine led to a huge travel movement in Europe. European train operators made it possible for those people to travel for free.
Newrest is responsible for catering and service of all “Nightjet” trains across Europe. It decided to welcome all Ukrainian refugees, who are travelling with the “Nightjet” train from Poland to Austria. On board, catering service is provided such as with free drinks and snacks. Furthermore, Newrest prepares and provides information leaflets in Ukrainian language about onward train connections and the arrival in Austria.
Besides, Newrest provide these services to ensure a comfortable and safe journey for all travelers, who had to leave their homes facing tough time.
“El vuelo de la Esperanza”
On March 12th, 92 people arrived in Valencia on a special flight operated by Air Nostrum in collaboration with the NGO “Together for Life” and the Generalitat Valenciana. The passengers on this special trip were mostly mothers and young children fleeing the war in Ukraine. They have found in Valencia a place to take refuge while the war goes on. Symbolically, the flight was named YW2402, February 24 being the date of the beginning of the war in Ukraine.
Air Nostrum counted on the collaboration of different air service providers who wanted to join the solidarity initiative. Newrest in Spain collaborated with Air Nostrum to help Ukrainian refugees in Spain by providing 200 meals on board. Newrest catering in Valencia accompanied these people by giving them a quality meal and offering them a moment of rest after escaping the situation in their country.
Congratulations to Air Nostrum for their action and thank you for trusting Newrest for this altruistic act.
