NEW YORK, March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Members of JetSmarter, the world's largest private air travel community, are providing a safer way home for America's most vulnerable newborns and their families. The company is launching a charitable initiative called #CharterHope that allows members to send private charters to bring immunocompromised infants home for the first time.
For healthy babies, the trip home from the hospital is a momentous one. But for America's most vulnerable babies—often born at specialty hospitals thousands of miles from home—getting home is more complicated. Even the common cold can be life-threatening, which makes a crowded commercial flight home another reason for worry.
Through the #CharterHope initiative, JetSmarter members can donate flight credit towards the creation of private charters. These private flights allow families and their immunocompromised newborns newborns a welcome alternative to busy commercial air travel.
"As a father, I hold this initiative close to my heart. Over the years, JetSmarter has become a tight knit community, and I'm thrilled to encourage our members to come together and donate to help new families across the country," said Sergey Petrossov, CEO of JetSmarter. "Many families are faced with the risk of traveling through commercial airports, exposing their newborns to busy airport terminals and crowded airplanes, post-surgery. We are committed to providing them with a better way to get back home."
