Space Available travel is a great program for our Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, Retired and their eligible family members. Please understand, our primary mission is the movement of cargo and space required (duty) passengers on Department of Defense owned or controlled aircraft. Additional considerations can affect the number of seats available are safety, aircraft configuration, maintenance and aircrew size. Once mission requirements are met, available seats will be offered to Space-A passengers awaiting transportation. The Space-A program is a byproduct of the military mission and is not funded in the DOD budget. Travelers must be prepared for the possibly of having to wait several days or even arrange alternate commercial transportation. Lodging and off base transportation is not always available and in some cases can be very expensive. Travel to remote or austere locations is also a possibility with even greater cost for alternate travel. Please ensure that you have the funds available to cover any unforeseen expenses. Please remember, space-available travel is a privilege and AMC cannot guarantee movement to your desired location or on any particular schedule.
