Hope Air’s airline partners are dedicated to our mission. From coast to coast, Canada’s national and regional airlines donate seats on their flights to Hope Air’s patients. We are proud to be supported by airlines who show compassion to our patients and truly understand how a flight can help make a difficult journey a little easier.
