How to fly free if you’re a disabled veteran
Military veterans who are 100% disabled are now eligible to travel on military aircraft at no cost when space is available. This free travel benefit is available through the military’s Space-Available (Space-A) Travel program.

Recent expansion of the Space-A program provides no-cost travel between military installations for fully disabled veterans as part of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act. The Space-A program previously was open only to active duty, Reserve and retired troops.
