Space-A travel is a means by which members of United States Uniformed Services (United States Military, reservists and retirees, United States Department of Defense civilian personnel (under certain circumstances), and these groups' family members, are permitted to travel on aircraft under the jurisdiction of the United States Department of Defense when excess capability allows. Eligible passengers wanting to travel using DoD Space-A travel are required to sign up at the departing location and are then placed on a locally-managed Space-A register. The registration process varies depending on the location, but most locations allow signups via electronic mail, fax, or postal mail. Some locations have their own web-based sign-up forms.
