American Airlines signs on for second year as ‘Official Airline For Dream Flights’

Dream Flights made this announcement:

Dream Flights, a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring America’s veterans and seniors living in retirement and long-term care communities, is pleased to announce American Airlines will continue to serve as the “Official Airline for Dream Flights,” which this year launched Operation September Freedom, a historic mission to locate and honor as many World War II veteran heroes as possible with free Dream Flights in restored WWII-era biplanes.

Dream Flights pilots, many of whom fly for major airlines — including American Airlines — and are active duty or retired military veterans themselves, will volunteer their time to fly WWII veterans in the country’s largest fleet of restored Stearman bi-planes. The thousands of dollars saved in travel costs for crew members and pilots traveling to Dream Flights events using AAdvantage® miles will help cover the cost of Dream Flights, which are always free to veterans.

Operation September Freedom runs Aug. 1-Sept. 30, 2021. Dream Flights relies on sponsorships and corporate and individual donations to cover the cost of maintenance, fuel and other operating expenses related to Dream Flights. Sponsorship and donation opportunities are available by visiting www.dreamflights.org/donate.
