SPOKANE, Wash. — Inland Northwest Honor Flights have been suspended through April 30 at the earliest, according to Director of the Inland Northwest Honor Flight Tony Lamanna.
Honor Flights transport US Military Veterans to Washington, D.C. to see memorials erected in their honor in person.
Inland Northwest Honor Flight had a flight scheduled for April 27-28, which will no longer be moving forward.
The decision was made based on advisories from the CDC and handed down by the Honor Flight National Board on March 10.
The board said they'll continue to monitor guidance from the CDC and other health authorities to determine if the mandatory suspension of honor flights will be extended past April 30, according to Chief Executive Officer of Honor Flight Inc., Meredith Rosenbeck.
"We value the health and safety of our veterans, their guardians, and everyone who supports the Honor Flight trips above all else," Rosenbeck said. "The decision to suspend all Honor Flight travel has not been made lightly."
