Hope Air, Canada’s national charity, supporting families and children in need who must travel for vital medical care, and Porter Airlines announced today a new partnership to strengthen Hope Air’s mission and service.
As part of this partnership, Porter is providing free travel vouchers for Hope Air patients travelling through Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. This is a critical connection for thousands of families, individuals and children each year who must travel to Toronto for specialized medical care. Patients living in communities such as Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins, and Thunder Bay, Ontario, among others, are able to travel conveniently to reach Toronto hospitals.
The Hope Air and Porter Airlines partnership will be officially recognized on June 15, at a special event hosted at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. The event includes the participation of Hope Air volunteer pilots as part of the Give Hope Wings coast-to-coast expedition, travelling across Canada to raise funds and awareness for Hope Air.
The Give Hope Wings expedition, launching the second half of its journey from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport on June 15, is organized and led by a group of dedicated volunteers. The trailblazing event aims to raise $1 million to fund 2,850 flights for Canadians in need who must travel to access vital medical care.
