AF-wide lodging rate increase effective Jan. 1

ARLINGTON, Va. (AFNS) -- Effective Jan. 1, the Air Force Lodging Program has increased nightly lodging rates service-wide in support of Department of Defense reform objectives to make business operations more efficient and provide Airmen with an improved lodging experience.

The rate adjustment is an essential step in the direction of the DoD’s directive for military services lodging programs to transition to a complete non-appropriated funds operations business model, eliminating appropriated funds support.

As nightly room fees become the sole source of income to fund all Air Force Lodging operations, Air Force Lodging facilities will work with their local civil engineer squadrons to transition maintenance, service and sustainment, restoration and modernization.

"The rate adjustment will allow Air Force Lodging to better maintain properties and modernize Air Force facilities for Airmen and their families,” said Horace L. Larry, Air Force Services director. “Although there will be a fee increase, we remain committed to providing our customers affordable prices and comfortable stays."

In addition to the modernization benefits of the funding and rate changes, this change will also enable the Air Force to reallocate enlisted personnel currently supporting lodging across the services enterprise, allowing them to better support wartime requirements.

To ensure long-range sustainment and improvements to the Air Force Lodging program, the new lodging rates are:

$70 visiting officer quarters/visiting quarters
$55 visiting Airman quarters
$77 temporary lodging facilities
$79 distinguished visiting quarters
$83 large distinguished visiting quarters

The rate increase is within per diem levels for all locations and all room types. If a location has lower per diem rate, the lodging rate will match the local per diem rate.

The Air Force will continue to provide Space Available customers affordable, quality lodging options where and when lodging capacity exceeds mission requirements. In addition, reservations made prior to the rate change will be charged the new rates as of Jan. 1, 2019.
