Fly America Act and Open Skies Agreements

Guidance

A person traveling on funds provided by the federal government must use a U.S. flag carrier

(an airline owned by an American company), regardless of cost or convenience.

When scheduling international travel that is federally funded, you must ensure that all flights,

where possible, are scheduled on U.S. flag carriers or on foreign air carriers that code

share with a U.S. flag carrier. Code sharing: when two or more airlines “code” the same flight as if it was their own.

A U.S. airline may sell a seat on the plane of a foreign air carrier; this seat is considered the same as one on a plane operated by a U.S. flag carrier. Compliance with the Fly America Act is satisfied when the U.S. flag air carrier's designator code is present in the area next to the flight numbers on the airline ticket, boarding pass, or on the documentation for an electronic ticket (passenger receipt) – see example below, where Delta Airlines (DL) has a code share agreement with Air France (AF) to Paris, France.

COMPLIANT NOT COMPLIANT

US Flag Air Carriers - U.S. flag carriers and their codes are below to assist you.

In order for a flight to be in compliance with the Fly America Act, the code of a U.S. flag air carrier must be noted as part of the flight number on the airline ticket, flight coupon (boarding pass*), or passenger receipt. Each airline has a two letter alpha code. From this list, you will be able to compare airline codes on the ticket with those on the list and thereby be able to ascertain whether or not the flight is on a US Flag air carrier.

U.S. flag air carriers:

• Airtran Airways (FL) • Alaska Airlines (AS) • American Airlines (AA)

• Continental Airlines (CO) • Delta Airlines (DL) • Frontier Airlines (F9)

• Hawaiian Airlines (HA) • JetBlue Airways (B6) • Midwest Express (YX)

• Southwest Airlines (WN) • Spirit Airlines (NK) • United Airlines (UA)

• USAirways (US) It is highly recommended that you book your international travel, when federally funded, through University Preferred Travel Agencies. Our preferred agencies have agents that are well versed in the Fly America Act. Please be sure to advise them that your trip is federally funded. http://www.dbs.umd.edu/travel/services/agents.php Exceptions to the Fly America Act To document the exceptions, you must complete the Fly America Act Waiver Checklist. Please see the Checklist on page 3.

The biggest exception to the Fly America Act is the Open Skies Agreement. On October 6, 2010, the United States and European Union (EU) Open Skies Air Transport Agreement was published by the U.S. General Services Administration. This multilateral agreement is in place sothat qualifying travelers, whose travel is supported by federal funds, may travel on EU airlines as well as U.S. Flag Air Carriers. There are also Open Skies agreement with Australia, Switzerland, and Japan. Please see the Flow Chart on page 4.

There are other exceptions to the Fly America Act which may be appropriate as well. A list of exception criteria may be found in the Federal Travel Regulation Guidelines – FTR sections 301-10.135-138. Please note that lower cost and personal convenience are not acceptable criteria for justifying the non- availability of a U.S. –flag air carrier.

Please note: Travelers using Department of Defense (DOD), Air Force, Army or Navy are not permitted to take advantage of Open Skies Agreements. These travelers must use an American carrier, unless they qualify for an exemption as noted in FTR 301-10.135, sections (a), (d), (e), (f), and (g).

–  –  –

Code sharing agreement exists. This two letter alpha code of a U.S. flag air carrier is clearly noted as part of the flight number on the airline ticket, flight coupon (boarding pass), or passenger receipt.

Bilateral or multilateral air transportation agreement. U.S. is a party and Dept. of Transportation determines agreement meets requirements of Fly America Act.

No U.S. flag air carrier provides service on a particular leg of your route (Travelers can only use foreign air carrier to or from the nearest interchange point to connect with a U.S. carrier).

A U.S. flag air carrier involuntarily reroutes traveler on a foreign air carrier.

Service on a foreign air carrier is three hours or less, and use of U.S. flag air carrier doubles en route travel time.

Air travel is between the U.S. and another country and use of a U.S. carrier on a nonstop flight extends travel time by 24 hours or more.

–  –  –

Remember, you must use a U.S. flag air carrier on every portion of the route where it provides service unless you qualify for a waiver. If a travel expense is disallowed, the department accepts liability of charges with departmental funds or identifies a suitable non-federal funding source to cover the disallowance.

–  –  –

 Frankfurt (E.U.) – San Francisco (U.S.)  San Francisco (U.S.) – Paris (EU)  Dublin (EU) – NYC (U.S.) – Vancouver (Non-U.S./Non-EU country)  Mexico City (Non-U.S./Non-EU country) – NYC (U.S.) – Madrid (EU)  Cleveland (U.S.) – Montreal (Non-U.S./Non-EU country) – Barcelona (EU)  Vienna (EU) – Toronto (Non-U.S./Non-EU country) – Denver (U.S.)  Istanbul (Non-U.S./Non-EU country) – Amsterdam (EU) – Memphis (U.S.)  Orlando (U.S.) – London (EU) – Moscow (Non-U.S./Non-EU country)  Washington DC (U.S.) – Sarajevo (ECAA - European Common Aviation Area)  Belgrade (ECAA - European Common Aviation Area) – Washington DC (U.S.)

When both conditions are met, your may travel on any of the following airlines:

–  –  –

Travel is NOT funded by U.S. DOD (Department of Defense) or U.S. Military, AND U.S. government DOES NOT have a published airfare rate for your travel route (City-Pair Agreement) The GSA's City Pair Program offers government negotiated fares for flights between certain cities. If a city-pair agreement is in effect, you may not claim an Open Skies exception and must fly on a US flag carrier or US code share carrier.

Check Airfares City-Pair Search before booking flights to determine if a city-pair agreement is in effect. After entering your departure and arrival cities, the search tool will either display the city pair agreement fares, or will report "There are no awards for the requested city-pair," in which case the Open Skies Exemption can be used.

When both conditions are met, your may travel on any of the following airlines:

 U.S. flag airlines  Qantas Airways  Virgin Australia Additional Exceptions

Other strictly limited circumstances in which an exception may be allowed include:

 a U.S. flag carrier does not provide service on a particular leg of your trip,  the use of a U.S. carrier will unreasonably delay your travel time  you are involuntarily rerouted, or  medical or safety reasons.
