2023 Spring Eye / Dental Clinic application
The clinic takes place the week of March 27th. Given the flight schedules and our desire to have everyone in Guerrero on Monday night, we have two alternatives for our volunteers to arrive in Chihuahua.
Option 1: Sunday Mar 26 - Depart on, or connect with, American Airlines EVENING flight
From DFW to CUU (AA# 4944 7:05 pm to 8:18 pm)
Option 2: Monday Mar 27 - Depart on, or connect with, American Airlines MORNING flight
From DFW to CUU (AA# 4936 11:11 am to 12:18 am)
While we normally prefer people to arrive on the Monday morning flight, given the startnig location of volunteers as well as the number of cancellations and delays going on in American Airlines network, volunteers might consider travelling on Sunday. While it means an extra night on the road, It increases the odds that everyone will arrive at the clinic on time.
If you are connecting in Dallas, please give yourself more time for the connnection than you would in normal times. I suggest leaving at least 2 hours between flights at DFW to maximize the chance that you make it to your destination without incident. Remember that the drive from the Chihuahua airport is about 2 1/2 hours so you don't want to miss the group transportation on either Sunday night or Monday morning.
Sun or Mon Arrive in Chihuahua City (and stay in Chihuahua City if arrving on Sunday). Leave for Guerrero late Monday morning.
Mon Arrive at the clinic in the afternoon. Get oriented. Prepare the clinic. Start seeing a limited number of patients so that there are surgery patients
waiting for the surgeons on Tuesday morning.
