United Airlines Supports TRIO and the transplant community!
The TRIO/United Airlines Travel Program is a cooperative arrangement between TRIO and the United Airlines Charity Miles Program. It provides for transplant recipients, candidates, living donors and care-givers cost-free air transportation when travel is transplant-related.
Update: To date, the program has made hundreds of trips possible! We're delighted with the program's success, but our miles available are in heavy demand by needy families and our available miles are getting low!
Please help spread the word: we desperately need people to donate United Airlines Frequent Flyer Miles. Call United at (800) 421-4655 or see further details below.
Eligibility for use of the Travel Program is based upon financial need. Specifically, use of the Travel Program must be for one of the following purposes:
- Medical treatment or consultation prescribed by the physician of an organ transplant recipient or candidate, or
- Travel by an organ donor for the purpose of donation or for medical consultation or treatment which is a prerequisite for donation, or
- One person accompanying a transplant recipient or candidate who must travel and is unable to travel alone, or
- Donor family member(s), on a case-by-case basis.
