I just caught this topic. YES, indeed HMY Airways is Gold Sponsor to the Make A Wish Foundation Canada. Since Janurary 2004, HMY Airways has been donating between CA
$1 to CA
$5 per ticket (depending routing and fares level) to the Foundation. That means every time you fly with HMY Airways, you are helping a great charity for children.
It is not just children in BC
that would benefit, but all across Canada. The Foundation's chapter in Ontario can norminate a child, and use the credit amount to fly the child and his family on HMY Airways from YYZ
then to LAX
or even just to YVR
(e.g. attend a NHL Playoff game !!). The credit amount can apply any where HMY Airways flys. The Foundation will make selection and advice HQ
where and when, and all tickets are positive confirm space. The child will also receive a small gift from HQ
A great move indeed.
Now let's look at what you receive when you take a trip YYZ
on HMY Airways, and compare it with others like Jetsgo, Westjet or even Air Canada. At the same prices CA
$169.00 one way -
1. You are contributing to a great charity.
2. If you book it with your travel agency, they receive 5-10% commission. A good way to support your local business. Not that many airlines now pay such high commission.
3. Once onboard, you will receive a hot meal service with wine, movie and music, plus the great attention service from the cabin crew. (look at http://www.airlinemeals.net/indexMeals.html and click HMY Airways then find out what is being served. You will be surprised). Any meals on Westjert or Jetsgo ??
4. A safe and faster flight on HQ
's B757. (B757 are faster than MD
-80 and B737, normally a YYZ
save you about 10 minutes).
I firmly believe HQ
is the most friendly and social responsible airline, it should be the airline by choice. I hope many of you could fly HQ
