The mission and purpose of Children’s Angel Airlines (CAA) is “…to ensure that no needy child patient is denied access to distant specialized medical evaluation, diagnosis or treatment for lack of a means of long-distance commercial airline transportation.”
Children’s Angel Airlines (CAA) facilitates no-cost or reduced rate commercial airline tickets for needy child patients and their families.
Children’s Angel Airlines uses commercial airlines to provide charitable child patient transportation. CAA does not duplicate any of the efforts of any other charity.
Patients use the charitable medical air transportation system to travel to and from distant specialized medical evaluations, diagnosis or treatments. Many patients and their families make multiple trips. Patients are asked to verify financial need and the patient’s primary physician will be asked to sign a form indicating that the travel is for essential and necessary medical care.
Parents use the charitable medical air transportation system for their children to travel to and from distant specialized medical evaluations, diagnosis or treatments. Many patients and their families make multiple trips. Parents are asked to verify financial need and the patient’s primary physician will be asked to sign a form indicating that the travel is for essential and necessary medical care.
Nationally, scores of child patients travel every month through these charitable or reduced-rate means – making it possible for them to get the best possible specialized care and the best chance for life. CAA helps patients traveling to medical institutions all over the United States including:
- University of Florida, Clinical Research Center
- Eastern Virginia Medical School
- National Institutes of Health
- John Hopkins Hospital
- Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
- Children’s Hospital of Washington
- More than 100 other children’s hospitals…
Parents no longer need turn down the option for specialized care at some distant medical facility for their children due to the lack of a financial means to travel for the treatments.

Children’s Angel Airlines 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. Children’s Angel Airlines personnel are highly experienced in these diverse and often changing airline patient ticket programs.Patient Application
