Southwest Airlines has donated 10,000 roundtrip tickets to nearly 80 nonprofit hospitals and medical transportation organizations across North America. This generous move is easing the burden of travel for medical patients and their caregivers, making it more comfortable for patients to get life-changing medical care they need.
“Southwest recognizes our Customers travel for a variety of reasons, but there is a special group of travelers who tug at our Hearts: those traveling to or from receiving medical treatment,” said Laurie Barnett, Southwest’s Managing Director of Communications and Outreach. “Through the Medical Transportation Grant Program, we’re able to take some of the stress out of a challenging time for families, allowing them to focus on their treatment and recovery.”
This program is in its 14th year, Southwest has donated nearly $36 million in transportation costs.
