Miracle Flights Soars Into November with Record October Flight Count


LAS VEGAS, NEV., Nov. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The nation's leading medical flight charity, Miracle Flights, has a lot to be thankful for this November. The nonprofit concluded last month with a record number of flights coordinated during the month of October—743. This comes as a major increase from the October 2014 and October 2015 reports of 557 and 698, respectively.

These flights are made up of patients from all over the U.S, as well as all over the globe. October brought a host of international flights, consisting of patients from 29 states and 11 countries, including Ecuador, Israel and Honduras.

To-date, the charity boasts 104,230 flights and 58 million miles covered. Miracle Flights has helped patients with rare and life-threatening medical conditions gain access to distant medical care for over three decades. Plane tickets are provided at no cost to the families and as many times as necessary.

"Quite literally, the sky's the limit for Miracle Flights," said CEO Mark E. Brown. "We will continue to help more and more families until every child has access to the right doctor. We consider October's record number of flights to be a Thanksgiving blessing, but we know we still have miles to go in the upcoming months. If you, or anyone you know, must travel to reach out-of-state medical care, please don't hesitate to give us a call."
