On September 10, 2017, a journey of remembrance to the National Flight 93 Memorial Park will depart from Newark Liberty International Airport. This will be a two-day event intended to “Always Remember, Never Forget”. On the first day of our journey, participating Flight Attendants will attend the “Sound Breaking Ceremony” for the Tower of Voices, which will be built as part of the final construction phase of the Flight 93 Memorial. Later that evening a memorial “Luminaria” service, where forty candled lanterns will be carried to the Wall of Names and placed under the name of each of our Flying Partners, Pilots, Customer Service Representative, and passengers of Flight 93, will take place. The next morning, we will attend the September 11th Memorial Observance Ceremony, where the names of those who lost their lives that day, will be read as the Bells of Remembrance echo through the silence of the final resting place of Flight 93. 

Flight Attendants will have ample time in the Visitor Center, to walk the final flight path of Flight 93, or to pay silent respect to those who perished that fateful day. We strongly encourage you to consider joining us as we stand together to remember the Heroes of Flight 93.

To participate in this two-day Memorial event, please fill out the on-line reservation form on our websiteRegistration deadline is Saturday, August 12, 2017.
