Harbour Air was awarded Hope Air’s Outstanding Philanthropist Award at the Air Transport Association of Canada meeting in Vancouver in November.
Hope Air arranges free flights to specialized medical services for patients living in rural or remote areas. Harbour Air serves communities on the West Coast and on Vancouver Island and has been supplying flights for more than a decade.
“Harbour Air Seaplanes is a long-standing and very generous airline partner,” said Hope Air chief executive officer Doug Keller-Hobson. “For over a decade, they have been a great champion for our cause and helped many people living in B.C. access the vital medical care they deserve.”
Harbour Air VP of Flight Operations and Safety said the partnership is the perfect way for the airline to give back to the community. “It’s an honour to be able to support the work of this incredible organization and be able to make a difference for families in our communities, at a time when they need it most.”
