Canadian leisure airline, Canada Jetlines has partnered with Canada’s only national charity providing flights, accommodations, meals, and ground transportation to those in financial need who require travel for medical care far from home. 

Canada Jetlines will support Hope Air operations with free flights for Hope Air’s patients, staff, and volunteers.

“As Hope Air continues to scale our mission to support Canadians with access to care, we recognize the limitations for those travelling out of rural communities. We are proud to have the commitment of Canada Jetlines from day-one of their operations and are grateful that they recognize the importance of supporting Canadians who must travel for vital medical care,” says Mark Rubinstein, Chief Hope Officer at Hope Air.

“Our team is excited to partner with Hope Air to bring vital care to those that require medical attention away from home,” shared Eddy Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines. “We understand the importance of community and corporate social responsibility as a national airline. Not only is it critical for us to succeed in our business by successfully serving travellers – we aim to succeed by doing “good” and exerting a positive impact beyond our customer reach.”
