Who We Are


World Wings International, Inc. is the 501 (C) (3) organization of former Pan Am flight attendants. With a long history of philanthropic work, Pan Am employees have been helping those less fortunate for decades. World Wings International has faithfully carried on that global legacy for 64 years.

Currently, we operate 4 international and 22 domestic chapters, each of which supports their choice of community needs. Additionally, all members lend their considerable support to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders. Pan Am bravely pioneered international aviation to exciting cosmopolitan cities as well as to remote corners of the globe, promoting tourism and economic development. In doing so, our multinational crews personally witnessed abject poverty in many areas. Working Flight Attendants would often fill their suitcases with non-perishable foods and articles of clothing to distribute among impoverished people. Both working and retired Flight Attendants have, and still do, participate in volunteering with the Dooley Foundation, Gallaudet University, CARE, and countless diverse local charities with hands-on involvement—all at their own expense, all on their own time. Over the years, World Wings has given millions of dollars to educate, conduct research, treat, feed and otherwise provide a hand-up by wholly funding numerous projects involving women, children, families, and veterans.

World Wings is proud to partner with David Jeffery Designs in our philanthropic efforts. Click here to learn more about their generous effort to support World Wings and their international charity Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders.
