!! FLIGHT ALERT !! From our national office Honor Flight.org:
Today, we announced that the Honor Flight Network will postpone all trips through April 30, 2020 in response to the growing health concerns over the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. The Board of Directors made this difficult decision following an alert issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which advised that adults over the age of 60 are particularly at risk of infection and should avoid all non-essential air travel. Unfortunately, the vast majority of our veterans fall into the CDC’s high-risk category. Many of our veterans also live in community settings, such as retirement homes or assisted living facilities, where the risk of spreading illness is extremely high.
Honor Flight trips are a once in a lifetime opportunity for America’s veterans, but their safety is our highest priority. We will continue to assess if any extension needs to be made beyond April 30 as more information is provided by health authorities. Honor Flight participants with questions about their individual trip should contact their local Honor Flight hub.
