Honor Flight Arizona Statement on 2021 Resumption of Flights
After lengthy, detailed, and heartfelt deliberations, the Honor Flight Arizona Board of Directors has elected to postpone any flights until spring of 2022. This was not an easy decision to make.
The decision was made in response to COVID-19 guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and trip requirements from the Honor Flight Network nationwide.
Numerous COVID-related health and safety measures have been implemented by the Honor Flight Network for 2021. All affiliated hubs must comply with these measures in order to resume trips. These extensive requirements are necessary to protect the health of all Honor Flight mission trip participants, including our senior Americans.
Honor Flight Arizona believes these requirements will diminish the experience for our Veterans throughout a very active three-day trip itinerary. Additionally, there remains uncertainty regarding access to some of our important sites/locations normally visited in Washington, D.C.
Our goal, and sincere hope, is to fly again in spring 2022 with fewer or no limitations due to COVID-19 safety protocols. Our existing wait lists will be preserved, and we continue to accept new applications. We thank everyone for your understanding and continued support.
