Neither senator’s office would say what other countries are on the itinerary, just that they are “key strategic allies in the region.”

McCain is a frequent flier on the military jets. And in the past several years, McCain has had at least one constant travel companion: Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, who went with McCain to Vietnam in January 2012.
