"It is difficult to put into words how grateful myself, my wife and my disabled son are for Southwest Airlines' Medical Transportation Grant Program. It has been a very difficult ordeal to go through these past two years, but without the assistance of Southwest, I would not have the chance to extend my life to this point and beyond, and for that reason we thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Southwest Airlines Medical Transportation Grant Program

Through the Southwest Airlines Medical Transportation Grant Program (MTGP) we provide complimentary, roundtrip tickets to nonprofit hospitals and medical transportation organizations. Southwest allows participating nonprofit hospitals and medical transportation nonprofit organizations the freedom to determine how to distribute the tickets to patients and/or caregivers.

We’re proud to partner with the following nonprofit hospitals and organizations in our 2014 Medical Transportation Grant Program. Each hospital has its own guidelines for administration of these tickets, so please contact the Social Work, Travel/Concierge Service, or Patient Assistance Department directly from one of the links below to see if you qualify for travel assistance.

Southwest Airlines is announcing that more than $2.8 million in free transportation is being provided to nearly 100 hospitals and organizations nationwide who have been selected as recipients of the 2014 Medical Transportation Grant Program.  To date, more than 33,000 tickets in 26 states have been distributed since the program’s inception seven years ago.
