March and April Honor Flights postponed until further notice

Effective immediately, Honor Flights are suspended until at least April 30, 2020 – please check back regularly for updates.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has reported a growing incidence of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) infections across the United States.

The leadership and Board of Honor Flight Network have been closely monitoring guidance from the health authorities concerning COVID-19. The CDC recently issued advisory that adults over the age of 60 are particularly at risk of infection and should avoid all non-essential air travel.  In consideration of the CDC’s guidance and the serious nature of the public health threat posed by COVID-19, the national Board is issuing a mandatory suspension of all Honor Flight trips effective immediately through at least April 30, 2020.  The national Board will continue to monitor CDC guidance over the coming weeks to determine if the mandatory suspension of Honor Flight travel will be extended further.

We value the health and safety of our veterans, their guardians, and everyone who supports the Honor Flight trips above all else. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
