Can Reservist or Guard members travel Space-A?

Reserve members on the Active Status List (may train for points and/or pay and may be considered for promotion) with DD Form 2 (Reserve) identification and DD Form 1853 may fly Space-A to, from, and between Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the CONUS as CAT-VI.  They cannot use Space-A to/from other overseas locations and dependents cannot accompany the member (even within CONUS).

Reservists placed on active duty for more than 30 days may take ordinary leave and they (and their accompanied dependents) can use Space-A anywhere (CONUS, OCONUS, Overseas) that Space-A is allowed.

""Note:"" The current (1994 vintage) regulation mentions the DD Form 2 (Red) ID card is required. The Red ID card was replaced with a Green Reserve ID Card in 1998. Reserve Retired (gray area retirees) cards and Reserve family members' cards remained red.

Members of Reserve Components may travel "Space-Required" to attend IDT assemblies within CONUS, between CONUS and OCONUS or within OCONUS.  An official Travel Authorization (TA) must be presented to AMC Passenger Service Agents to be considered during the Space-R travel selection process. Approved written authorization may include a memorandum letter or appropriate service form, directing a member to perform IDT and must indicate the dates and locations of training and be signed by an approving authority other than the member. All travelers must have a valid ID card and all other required travel documents (e.g., passport).
