Westchester County Airport is Home to the Corporate Angel Network?
Each month, the “Did You Know” video segment of the My Westchester newsletter explores a different topic that is unique, and little known about Westchester County. This month, we went to Westchester County Airport to visit with the Corporate Angel Network. The Corporate Angel Network is a non-profit organization that has been based at Westchester County Airport for the past 35 years, which helps to coordinate flights for cancer patients seeking treatment using corporate aircraft.
The Corporate Angel Network pairs empty seats on private and corporate planes with cancer patients who need to be transported to treatment at no cost. Their model not only improves patients’ chances of survival, but also reduces their emotional stress, physical discomfort and financial burden.
