Position: Volunteer U.S. Flight Scheduler

Give A Mile is looking for a U.S.-based volunteer to book our flights of compassion to connect people at end-of-life with their loved ones for a final goodbye
This person would be responsible for booking flights on behalf of approved Give A Mile flight recipients, mostly using donated points or miles. Most flights are currently booked through United Airlines due to our established relationship.
Expected time commitment: 2-4 hours per week, more during Give A Mile’s busy campaign seasons. 

Communicate sensitively and professionally with Give A Mile flight recipients in order to book flights on their behalf

Respect the flight recipient’s schedule but also look to use miles efficiently (e.g. may suggest a certain time of day that would require fewer miles if the recipient is flexible)

Be willing to respond to flight booking requests within 24 hours (and preferably faster), including weekends; Note, if you will not be available, you can inform staff so that a backup flight booker is available

We take the privacy of our flight recipients and all Give A Mile constituents seriously and expect this volunteer to follow those guidelines; learn more: https://giveamile.org/privacy-policy/

Provide basic reporting of flights to Executive Director and Accounting for financial reconciliation and marketing purposes

Must be based in the United States due to airline booking restrictions

Travel agency or airline experience preferred but not required

GDS capabilities are preferred but not required

If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer role that will allow you to demonstrate your compassion and utilize your airline/travel expertise, please send a letter of interest, including your skills relative to the position, to [email protected].
