Since 1986, Hope Air has been arranging free flights to get financially-disadvantaged Canadians to the healthcare they need.
Hope Air is the only registered, national charity that provides free flights to people who cannot afford the cost of an airline ticket to get to medical expertise or specialized medical technologies that usually exist only in larger urban centres.
Hope Air is unique among Canadian charities in what we do. And we are proud to provide all flights to our Clients completely free of charge: no cost is transferred to Clients.
We are not an airline, we are a lifeline.
