Flight Assistance For Children & Adults


Intercontinental and Hobby are the two Houston area airports that you can fly into.  Listed below are the airlines / organizations that have in the past provided families with free or reduced medical airfare.  Each program has its own criteria for gifting or discounting flights. Some organizations require that you have a letter from a non-profit organization. You can ask local community or religious organizations for this letter (stating that there is financial need). If you are a brachial plexus patient you can ask UBPN, Inc. for this letter. Contact UBPN at (866) 877-7004 or e-mail to info@ubpn.org. Some organizations will need a confirmation letter sent from the doctor or the hospital. Note that the cheapest flights usually include a Saturday night stay.

If your airline is not listed, call them directly and ask if they have a special program for medical airfare.  It is common for airlines to donate unused mileage to children and families in need.
