How To Volunteer

Typical Trip Cost:

We fly an American Airlines charted Airbus A321 which will hold 187 persons (1 seat is for American Airlines Flight Coordinator).   There are 4 buses, police escorts, lunches, dinners and misc. costs all totaling about $97,200 PER FLIGHT beginning in 2019.

 

Actual costs can fluctuate depending on dates, changes in contract pricing and fuel costs, just to name a few.

 

Why Fly Charter?

Commercial flights are less costly, and can be utilized out of major airline hubs; however, travel is even more difficult for veterans who live in areas where direct commercial flights to DC are not available. Mobility impairment, oxygen needs, and unexpected delays turn airport transfers into insurmountable travel barriers for many elderly people. In these areas, such as Northern Indiana, charter flights make the impossible possible for aging and infirm veterans. Charters will allow us to provide the flight and tour in a single day, allowing more veterans to travel.

 

What can I do to honor a veteran?

Hold a Fundraising Event

We are a small group of volunteers. In order to make this work, we need volunteers from all across the NE Indiana region to hold fundraisers and donate proceeds to Honor Flight Northeast Indiana. Community fundraisers, and fundraisers sponsored by churches, schools, and fraternal organizations have made this trip possible for over 17,000 veterans in other regions. Please contact us if you are interested in helping in this way.
