JetSmarter Gives Immunocompromised Newborns a Safer Way Home

Members Send Private Jets to Bring Babies Home for the First Time

Press Release – NEW YORK (March 29, 2017) – Starting today, 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.

America’s most vulnerable babies are often born at specialty hospitals thousands of miles from their homes. And due to complications or medical conditions, even the common cold could be life-threatening. This makes a crowded commercial flight home a real 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 to avoid crowded commercial airports and fly home worry-free.

“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.”
