DEPENDENT AIR CHARTER PROGRAM

1. TO ENHANCE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR DEPENDENTS OF PERSONNEL IN DEPLOYED UNITS TO TRAVEL OVERSEAS DURING PERIODS OF DEPLOYMENT, A PROGRAM IS BEING DEVELOPED TO ARRANGE CHARTER AIR TRANSPORTATION IN COORDINATION WITH DEPLOYMENT LIBERTY SCHEDULES TO OVERSEAS LIBERTY PORTS FREQUENTED BY DEPLOYED UNITS. THIS TRANSPORTATION WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE FOR ACTIVE DUTY PERSONNEL FOR LEAVE PURPOSES. THIS PROGRAM IS BEING INSTITUTED TO HELP MINIMIZE THE IMPACT OF EXTENDED PERIODS OF ABSENCE ON NAVY PERSONNEL AND THEIR DEPENDENTS.

2. CHARTER TRANSPORTATION WILL BE ARRANGED DURING SCHEDULED LIBERTY PERIODS AND PEAK LEAVE PERIODS. WHERE DESIRED BY PERSONNEL TRAVELING, ARRANGEMENTS WILL ALSO BE MADE FOR HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS, TOURS AND OTHER SERVICES IN SUPPORT OF TRAVEL TO OVERSEAS AREAS. THE PROGRAM WILL BE OPERATED AT NO COST TO THE GOVERNMENT WITH PERSONNEL WHO TRAVEL ABSORBING ALL COSTS. HOWEVER, THE REDUCED COST OF AIRFARES SHOULD PROVIDE INCREASED INCENTIVE FOR SUCH TRAVEL WHICH HAS IN THE PAST NOT BEEN WITHIN THE FINANCIAL CAPABILITY OF MANY OF OUR PERSONNEL.

3. THE CHIEF OF NAVAL PERSONNEL WILL COORDINATE THIS PROGRAM AND ARRANGE FOR CHARTER TRANSPORTATION AND THE AVAILABILITY OF SERVICES IN SUPPORT OF TRAVEL. PILOT PROGRAMS IN BOTH THE ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC FLEETS WILL BE CONDUCTED AND FINAL DETAILS OF THE PROGRAM WILL BE PROMULGATED BY THE CHIEF OF NAVAL PERSONNEL.

4. TO ENSURE THE SUCCESSFUL ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE INTENDED PURPOSE OF THIS PROGRAM COMMANDING OFFICERS OF LOCAL UNITS AND COMMANDS DESIGNATED BY THE CHIEF OF NAVAL PERSONNEL AS COORDINATING POINTS MUST PARTICIPATE TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT POSSIBLE IN THE PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTING OF CHARTER AIR TRANSPORTATION IN SUPPORT OF PERSONNEL WITHIN THEIR COMMAND JURISDICTION.
