Goodwill Flights

The Goodwill Flights are our opportunity to promote business and tourism for the New Mexico. The annual trips are generally a week long and visit 2-3 cities, carrying approximately 165 Amigo travelers. Our destinations, most often, are within the contiguous United States, but have also included foreign destinations, including Mexico, Ireland and Canada. We host receptions in the cities we visit and invite our own business contacts, the political dignitaries and other guests to learn about our wonderful state. The Governor of New Mexico travels with us in their official capacity, and will address the guests at these receptions. During our travels we tour many wonderful attractions and businesses in our destination cities, many of which already have connections to New Mexico.
