SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Inland Northwest Honor Flight will charter its next two flights to make traveling easier on Veterans.

The organization says the flights will be able to take 3 times the amount of World War II veterans on the flights as they were before on commercial flights.

The next two flights could now ensure every person on the waiting list will get to go on that trip. With the new plan, the organization will complete its mission to take every local veteran to the capitol by the end of the year.

The charters are non-stop flights with no-layovers and the veterans will be home a day earlier. The chartered flights will cost more but Honor Flight says it will allow them to move to the next generation of veterans.

Honor Flight organizes a free trip for World War II veterans to travel to Washington D.C. to see memorials built in their honor.
