JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Air Force military tour lengths for unaccompanied assignments to Papa Air Base, Hungary, and Moron AB, Spain, will change effective April 1.

 

Currently, both locations are 15 months unaccompanied. However, Papa AB will become an 18-month unaccompanied tour, while Moron will become a 12-month unaccompanied tour. 

 

No changes were made to the current 24-month accompanied tour lengths for either location.

 

The change was directed by the assistant secretary of Defense, Manpower and Reserve Affairs, to bring all assignments outside the continental United States into compliance with standard tour lengths.

 

The Air Force’s Personnel Center will send email notifications to all Airmen scheduled to arrive in Hungary or Spain on or after April 1. Cancellation requests may be considered on a case-by-case basis and will depend on mission impact, reporting dates, possible hardship situations and other factors. AFPC will work with Airmen who experience legitimate hardships as a result of the change.

 

Affected Airmen should contact their base personnel sections to confirm they have accurate, updated orders.
