The Corporate Angel Network (CAN) has selected fractional provider NetJets as a recipient of the 2019 Corporate Angel Award. “Organizations receiving this award go above and beyond to fulfill our mission of helping cancer patients access the best treatment centers in the country by arranging free travel on corporate aircraft,” CAN said.
“We are honored to accept this award, but most importantly, we’re pleased that our partnership is making a difference and helping to reduce the travel burden for patients with cancer across the country,” NetJets said.
Over the past 21 years, NetJets and its owners have donated hundreds of flight hours to CAN for this purpose. NetJets expanded this partnership earlier this year, giving CAN access to ferry flights and matching NetJets shareowner flight-hour donations up to 50 hours annually.
“The combination of services that NetJets is providing to CAN is without precedent among other participating companies,” CAN said earlier this year. NetJets is coordinating full flight operations information, allowing CAN to quickly secure positioning flights for patient travel. The fractional provider has also arranged for lodging providers Marriott, Hyatt, and Hilton, and ground transportation companies Empire CLS and Savoya, to provide patients with free lodging and ground transportation when possible, CAN added.
