||How long will it take
to find a flight for me?
We do not create a flight request for you
until 3 weeks before your appointment, and we don't start looking
for a flight until a week before your appointment, because we
only get corporate schedules a week in advance. Sometimes we
might find a flight immediately, but it varies, depending on
where you live and where you're going. There is the possibility
we may not find a flight, which is why we encourage you to make
back-up commercial reservations.
||How will I know someone
is working on my trip?
A week before your appointment, we start
matching your request with flight schedules we've received from
our participating companies. The volunteers who work on your
trip will notify you with any possible flights, or to let you
know if we haven't found one.
||Can my spouse or a friend
fly with me?
If a second seat is available patient may
bring one adult companion, and children (under age 21) may bring
two adults. Corporate participants are accustomed to receiving
requests for two seats, three if the patient is a child.
||Can you fly family members
to visit me?
Corporate Angel flights are arranged for
cancer patients, bone marrow donors and bone marrow recipients.
Only family members accompanying patients can be transported.
||How do I get from the
airport to the hospital or hotel?
Ground transportation arrangements are made
by the patient. We have some information about car services
that we can give you if needed.
||Who can help me with lodging?
Social workers at the hospital where you
will be receiving treatment are a great resource for supplementary
services. Often, lodging facilities close to hospitals provide
a discount to visiting patients.
