GrandView Aviation, a leading private aviation charter operator earlier this year partnered with Corporate Angel Network (CAN) to provide free flights to cancer patients (and family members and caregivers) who need to travel to and from treatment.
Every week, GrandView gives CAN access to empty leg flights that arise in hopes to match a flight with a patient’s treatment travel needs.
Corporate Angel Network (CAN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to help cancer patients access the best treatment centers in the United States by arranging free travel on corporate aircraft.
Business jet travel makes it possible for patients, especially those in locations with minimal airline access, to travel to specialized medical centers.
Whether a patient is traveling for surgery, clinical trial, or a second opinion, CAN aims to reduce a patient’s physical, emotional and financial stress by providing a seat on a corporate flight.
Over the past 40 years, CAN has transported more than 66,000 patients.
“We are so pleased to be able to fly 9-year-old patient, Guy, his 13-year old brother and their father home from treatment in New York City,” said Jessie Naor, GrandView Aviation President.
“When we found out Guy loved LEGO®, we gave him a set to enjoy assembling during the trip.
“We are honored to join many other corporations who support Corporate Angel Network’s mission to help cancer patients access treatment through the use of business jets and look forward to providing many more patient trips in the future.”
