Hope Air Diabetes Flights Program

In 2013, Hope Air arranged over 200 free flights for people who needed medical support for diabetes and related complications that were not available in their home communities. In early 2014, Hope Air received a generous corporate donation to expand the program.

Hope Air can arrange flights on commercial routes serviced by Canada’s national airlines and some larger regional airlines (e.g. Bearskin in Ontario, HawkAir in B.C.). The charity doesn’t have airline partners or funding to fly to more remote Northern areas. Also, Hope Air can’t arrange flights for individuals who have access to government programs or other organizations that reimburse travel expenses for healthcare. All individuals who request a free flight are contacted by a Hope Air volunteer and asked about family income and other access to support. The Hope Air in-take process is very simple and generally completed within five to 10 minutes.
