Why not just send people through commercial flights?
Three reasons. One is cost, because most of our passengers are financially disadvantaged, and the total fees for flying a person with his or her family, round-trip, is rather expensive. With all the long lines, security procedures, and flight delays, the second reason for not flying commercial is the physical toll those flights can take on an individual, especially one dealing with an illness. The third reason is location: we can pick up passengers at a nearby, local airport, and drop them off closer to their desired destination than a commercial flight can.
