Phillips 66 Aviation awarded $22,000 to longtime partner Corporate Angel Network (CAN) during this year’s NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition.

CAN’s sole mission is to arrange free transportation to medical treatment centers for cancer patients and their caregivers. The organization does this by utilizing empty seats onboard business aircraft during routine business trips.

The donation is a part of Phillips 66 Aviation’s sponsorship of the Corporate Angel Award, a unique program that recognizes corporations and their flight departments that have demonstrated outstanding dedication as participants in CAN. The award recognizes four corporate flight departments each year. This year’s award recipients are ConocoPhillips, Honeywell, Ultimate Jet Charter and Dow Chemical. More than 500 major corporations participate in CAN.

Phillips 66 has sponsored the award since 2010. This year’s award was co-sponsored by Phillips 66 Aviation, Safe Flight Instrument Corp. and BCA.

“Our organization cannot do what it does year after year without the generosity of corporate flight departments and donations,” said Gina A. Russo, CAN’s executive director. It’s our hope that we continue to provide cancer patients access to the best treatment available for their specific diagnoses.”
