After 2 long years of restrictions, Space-Available (Space-A) travel has been reinstated. As of April 22, all limitations have been cleared out!
Air Mobility Command (AMC) ~ “SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. – As of 22 April, 2022, all restrictions on space-available (Space-A) travel have been lifted.
The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense temporarily suspended most Space-A travel aboard Air Mobility Command and contracted aircraft, effective March 21, 2020 in order to limit COVID-19’s spread and impact on the force.
Medical screening protocols may still apply for travelers heading OCONUS. Members traveling to a foreign country will need to follow any testing requirements listed within the Electronic Foreign Clearance Guide.
This reopening permits Space-A travel for uniformed service members, retirees, dependents and reservists to travel within the continental United States and outside the continental United States, if space allows.
Per Department of Defense policy, if necessary, Space-A travel limitations can be reinstated to help stop the spread of any future outbreaks of COVID-19. Mobility aircrew readiness is paramount to ensuring the Department is postured to project mobility airpower and global reach.
