WHAT ARE THE ESCORT RESPONSIBILITIES?


There are two types of passes, know which type you are receiving.

24 Hour Pass: Guest passes are available based on a 24 hour time period from the time of registration at the visitor gate.

Visitors must both be reregistered by an authorized sponsor and deregistered by the same sponsor by the required time. Visitors are not allowed to reside in dormitories; they may stay in lodging or on-base housing.

As a sponsor, I am responsible for my guest at all times.

I can only escort up to four individuals as a DOD ID holder. As USFK Form 37EK holder escort authority is identified on the ID.

As a sponsor, I must remain with my guest at all times while on the installation.
I cannot hand off my guest to another person.

I must escort my guest to the same gate we initially entered when departing the installation.

Any violation of escort privileges will result in a revocation of escort privileges.

I am a member of the media. Who do I contact for information and how do I attend events?

Members of the media should contact the 51st Fighter Wing Public Affairs Office by phone at 82-31-661-4044 or by e-mail at51FWPA@osan.af.mil with any queries or requests pertaining to 51st Fighter Wing events. 

As a Reservist, where can I fly? 

Reserve members with DD Form 2 (Red) identification and DD Form 1853 may fly to, from, and between Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the CONUS. Additionally, when on active duty, members may fly anywhere overseas that AMC has flights operating. 

 

As a retiree, where can I fly? 

Retired members with DD Form 2 (Blue) identification card may fly anywhere AMC has flights operating, including the CONUS. 

 

Can I fly on Space-A on other than AMC flights? 

Yes. Your travel eligibility is for all DOD-owned or controlled aircraft. AMC does not always have knowledge of other command/services' flights. 

 

Can I pay for excess baggage when flying space-available?

No. Only duty status passengers may pay for excess baggage. 

 

Can I sign up remotely? 

Yes. Remote sign-up allows passengers to enter the backlog by faxing copies of proper service documentation along with desired country destinations and family members first names to the aerial port of departure. The fax data header will establish date/time of sign-up; therefore, active duty personnel must ensure the fax is sent no earlier than the effective date of leave. Mail entries will also be permitted. The original date and time of sign-up shall be documented and stay with the passenger until his or her destination is reached. On reaching destination, the passenger may again sign up for space available travel to return to home station. 

 

Can my pet travel with me on a Space-A flight? 

No. DOD has reserved pet shipments for passengers in permanent change of station(PCS) status. Additionally, travel with pets would be difficult at best due to limited aircraft pet spaces, pet import documentation requirements, and the possibility of quarantine in the event of an aircraft divert. 

 

Do I have to be in uniform to travel? 

Each service determines their own travel uniform policies. When civilian clothing is worn, use common sense. Attire should be in good taste and not in conflict with accepted attire in the overseas country of departure, transit, or destination, as defined by the DOD Foreign Clearance Guide. It should also be capable of keeping you warm especially on military aircraft.

How does the selection process work? 

Travelers remain on the register for 60 days or the duration of their travel orders or authorization, whichever occurs first. 

When you register, you are assigned a category of travel and compete for seats within categories based on the date and time of registration. This date and time of sign-up is yours through to destination; you will receive a new date and time when you register for your return travel. 

Space required passengers or cargo may require the removal of Space A passengers at any point. If removed en route, you may re-register with your original date and time of registration. AMC passenger agents will assign a new date and time to any country you change or add on your application. Always be prepared to purchase onward or return commercial transportation, meals, and lodging. 

 

How long does my name stay on the Space A list ?

All travelers remain on the register 60 days after registration, or for the duration of their travel orders authorization, or until they are selected for travel, whichever occurs first. Revalidation has been eliminated. 

 

How many bags am I authorized? 

Each passenger may check two pieces of checked baggage, 70 pounds each, up to 62 linear inches in size (length + width + height). Family members may pool their baggage allowances. Hand carried baggage must fit under the seat, up to 45 linear inches in size, or in the overhead compartment, if available. 

Total weight limit on passenger baggage for C21 and C12 aircraft is 30 pounds. Hand carried and checked baggage combined. 

Note: Baggage weight may be limited due to type of aircraft or other restrictions. Check with your Passenger Service Center for more information. 

 

How many people are ahead of me on the Space-A register? 

Each terminal maintains a Space-A register (organized by priority and the date and time of registration for travel) that is updated daily. The register is conveniently located in the terminal and directly accessible to you. Travelers may call the terminal direct to find where they stand travel wise. 

 

What amenities are available at the passenger terminal? 

The 731 AMS Passenger Terminal has vending machines with beverages and snacks, a family lounge, special category lounge, cable TV, fax and internet access to include wireless capability. Osan AB has a BX with a food court. There is also a Burger King & Popeye's, Shoppette, and a Chili's restaurant on base, as well as two enlisted clubs and an officer's club.

 

What is country sign-up, and how does it affect me?

Under this program, you may sign up for five different countries rather than five different destinations. You are also eligible for the "ALL" sign-up which makes you eligible for all other destinations served. This gives you a greater selection of destinations from which to choose. 

 

What is self sign-up? 

Self sign-up is a program that allows passengers to sign-up at a terminal without waiting in line. Most locations now provide self sign-up counters with easy to follow instructions for registration. Not available at the Osan AB Passenger Terminal. 

 

Where and when can my family members travel with me? 

Dependents of active duty members may travel within the continental United States when accompanying their sponsor on emergency leave or on permissive house-hunting trips incident to a permanent change of station move. Command sponsored dependents stationed overseas are allowed unaccompanied travel to, from, and within the overseas theater (in addition to environmental morale leave previously authorized). Travel restrictions may apply to certain overseas are as as determined by the unified commander. 

Members traveling in non-command sponsored status must have documentation signed by their sponsor's commander verifying command sponsorship during their travels and show to air terminal personnel. This document is only valid for one round trip from the sponsor's duty location. Family members under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an eligible parent or legal guardian. 

 

Who determines eligibility to fly Space A? 

The four services jointly establish Space A eligibility. AMC's first responsibility is airlifting official DOD traffic. Space A passengers are accommodated only after official duty passengers and cargo.
