Remembering 9/11: A Message from Tailwind Air Tod Remembering 9/11: A Message from Tailwind Air

Today, as a veteran airline in the industry, we at Tailwind Air take a moment to reflect on the events of September 11th, 2001. We remember the innocent lives lost, the bravery of first responders, and the unity that emerged in the wake of tragedy.

The aviation community felt the weight of that day deeply, forever changing the landscape of air travel. But it also underscored the resilience and spirit of our nation, of our people, and of our industry.

Today, we fly with the memory of those we lost, the gratitude for those who keep us safe, and the hope for a world built on peace and understanding.

Never forget.
