TENTATIVE HONDURAS VETERINARY-PUBLIC HEALTH MINISTRY

AGENDA 2020


Saturday, May 16, 2020

Arrive at the airport three hours before your outbound flight.
     Be sure and bring your passport.


     If you are flying out of Houston or San Antonio, your first checked bag will be used to transport mission supplies!  If you choose to check a personal bag, you will be responsible to pay the additional luggage cost.  Check your ticket carefully to see what your baggage cost will be.  At our location in Honduras, there is a nearby supermarket that you can easily visit to obtain toiletries, food and drinks.

  • Anyone departing from San Antonio will assemble at the ticket counter where you check in with your luggage with Ripp Hardaway.  We will re-assemble in Houston at the departure gate.
  • Anyone departing from Atlanta will meet with Dr. Randy Lynn in the Atlanta departure lounge.
