Rochester Airport Construction Notice

April 10th, 2018

Dear Honor Flight Rochester Fans,

Your participation at the Honor Flight Rochester homecomings have made us the epitome of homecomings in the Honor Flight Network. But with the construction at the Greater Rochester International Airport, the spaces assigned for HFR uses will be different. Outside the upper driveway is closed. Inside HFR will use less of the upper concourse and more of the lower concourse. Familiarity with old habits is gone.

Please be understanding that the veterans’ family members only have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to welcome home their loved one. Let’s do our best to make sure family members will enjoy this most memorable afternoon with their veteran.

Thank you for your consideration and thanks for your continued support.

Respectfully,
Honor Flight Rochester

Unfortunately veterans cannot choose what flight they will travel on due to medical and logistic issues associated with the flight process. We also encourage veterans from the Syracuse and Buffalo area's to visit and register with their local Honor Flight hubs before registering with Rochester Honor Flight.
