Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.

!! FLIGHT ALERT !!

All flights for the 2020 flight season have been postponed due to the COVID-19 virus.

UPDATE: JUNE 11, 2020. Honor Flight Network and Honor Flight Southern Arizona have postponed all trips for the 2020 flight season in response to the health concerns over the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has 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.

Honoring the greatest generation

Honor Flight Southern Arizona

Honor Flight Southern Arizona provides WWII, Vietnam and Korean War Veterans the opportunity to see their national memorials in Washington DC. These are the men and women who availed themselves in a national effort to keep America safe from foreign threats and It is now our responsibility to keep them from being forgotten, and to thank them for a job they did so long ago.

We will provide those veterans living in southern Arizona a three-day trip to Washington D.C. to visit the National Memorials built in honor to their service - at no cost.

The trip is our honor and privilege and includes airfare, transportation, meals and lodging plus a “Guardian” to watch over them.

The trip allows each veteran the opportunity to feel the impact of their service as well as our nation’s gratitude. At every stop along the way, people cheer, shake their hands, and thank them for their service – it is something truly great to witness.

Note: If you live in central or northern Arizona, please contact our sister hub, Honor Flight Northern Arizona, for more information.

Arranging & Scheduling Honor Flights

How we do it

Honor Flight Southern Arizona works year-round to conduct as many flights as possible. Flights will "take-off" as scheduled if funding and guardian needs are met. All flights depart from and return to Tucson International Airport.

Due to travel distance from Tucson to the East Coast, trips less than three days would be too strenuous for most older veterans. Three days gives plenty of time to reflect and enjoy the entire experience.

Due to the length of our waiting list, veterans cannot select travel dates when they sign-up for Honor Flight.

Honor Flight is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that would not be possible without the support of individual donors, sponsors, guardians, and of course, the volunteers. It is a collaborative effort to make each flight enjoyable and safe, and an experience that our veterans will never forget!
