Charter broker Trilogy Aviation Group and Corporate Angel Network (CAN) are partnering to help cancer patients fly for free when they need to travel for treatment.
Under the partnership, Trilogy Aviation will give cancer patients via CAN access to empty-leg flights that Trilogy sells for its charter operator clients. Customers who fly on Trilogy-sourced flights will have the option to bring cancer patients on their flights, and Trilogy will “incorporate [CAN’s] mission in various client offerings allowing for a variety of ways to give back and make a difference.”
“We are excited about joining many other companies in supporting Corporate Angel Network,” said Trilogy Aviation CEO Thomas Nelson. “By partnering with Corporate Angel Network, we are utilizing the inventory of private jet empty legs to help patients in need. Cancer has directly affected many people close to me, so when the opportunity came up to make a difference, the decision to partner was easy.”
CAN arranges free travel on private and corporate business jets to help cancer patients travel to locations where the best treatment is available. “Private jet travel makes it possible for patients, especially those in remote locations, to access medical centers and reduces the physical, emotional, and financial stress of the patients and their families,” according to CAN.
