Podcast: The Many Ways to Support Corporate Angel Network

Nov. 1, 2021

For close to 40 years, Corporate Angel Network (CAN) has provided cancer patients free air transportation to distant hospitals and treatment centers by utilizing business aircraft. “While we are very proud of the 66,000 flights that we have completed, and the hundreds of patients that we help every month, there are still hundreds of patients we have to say ‘no’ to every month,” said Samantha Lohse, CAN’s director of programs and services. “So increasing our available flight lift, and the [number of] companies that are able to support our mission, remains our No. 1 priority.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Samantha Lohse, director, programs and services, Corporate Angel Network
  • Lisa Swartzwelder, director, shuttle operations and flight administration, L Brands
