Flight Status 2020
The national Honor Flight Network Board of Directors met in June to discuss the remainder of the season and implications of COVID-19 on such future trips. Updates on Honor Flight travel and events are as follows:
- 2020 Trip Suspension. The national Board has extended the suspension of all Honor Flight travel through the remainder of the calendar year 2020. Please note that this mandate includes trips of all sizes, destination, and duration. Failure to abide by the trip suspension mandate will result in the immediate and irrevocable discharge of the Hub from the Honor Flight Network.
- Local Events/Fundraisers. As has been previously communicated, as of June 1, 2020, Hubs may have local events and fundraisers as long as such events/fundraisers comply with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations in place at the time of the event.
Buffalo Niagara Honor Flight has contacted all veterans slated to go on the original Spring 2020 flight. If there are any questions, please let us know. All of you remain in our thoughts and we look forward to being able to share a special day with you in Spring 2021. We will keep in touch throughout the following months.
BNHF will use extreme caution in hosting events and ensure that all event participants are complying at all times with the applicable regulations in our area (i.e. social distancing, masks, etc.). Please continue to support us at future events if you are comfortable doing so.
Submit veteran applications for future flights. Buffalo Niagara Honor Flight serves 7 Counties of WNY, Potter, McKean, and Warren Counties in PA also Southern Ontario, Canada. Priority is given to WWII, Korean War Veterans, and Veterans with a catastrophic illness followed by Vietnam War Veterans and Veterans from other conflicts. We plan to take ALL Veterans on future Missions!
