Commercial Airline Transportation
Mercy Medical Angels® administers charitable or deep-discount airline ticket programs for patients and patient escorts on behalf of various major airlines. Ambulatory patient travel exceeding 750 miles necessitates the use of airline resources. Special circumstances can make it advisable to use these programs for even shorter distances. MMA personnel are highly experienced in these diverse and often changing airline patient ticket programs.
Mercy Medical Angels’ ground transportation program ensures travel for low-income patients by providing gas cards and commercial bus or Amtrak tickets. Patients (with or without escort) must be ambulatory and require no medical monitoring or care en route. These trips are for non-local medical care over 50 miles away and the typical trip does not exceed 300 miles.
Volunteer Pilot Transportation
Mercy Medical Angels’ volunteer pilots generously donate their time and plane to transport patients to life-saving medical care. Patients (with or without escort) must be ambulatory and require no medical monitoring or care en route.
