Travel Update and Precautions
Recently, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandated that all airline carriers flying 737 aircraft MUST check each aircraft for malfunctions. Airlines will have 20 days from April 20, 2018 to have these inspections completed. This will affect cancellations of some flights from several carriers. Southwest accelerated its fan blade inspection immediately after the recent engine tragedy and said it cancelled about 40 of 4000 scheduled flights on Sunday, April 22. As a best practice, check the status of your flight prior to going to the airport to make sure that it is departing on time and has not been cancelled. The Travel and Meeting Planning Department of GCFA will work diligently to keep you informed of these kinds of updates that may affect your travel throughout the United Methodist connection.
