Air travel is recommended when the cost of an employee’s time is an important factor or when travel time by other methods would increase the cost to the University.  Travelers are to choose the most practical and economical mode of transportation, and are to generally travel the most direct route.  Consideration should be given to the total cost to the University, time of the traveler, and the impact on the productivity of the traveler.

 

Commercial Transportation

The University reimburses nonrefundable commercial tickets for economy/coach accommodations.  Upgraded seats are the responsibility of the traveler, unless required for ADA purposes. 

The University's Travel Card is the preferred method of payment.

Charter Transportation

A charter aircraft is available, allowing designated university employees the ability to maximize their time.  The use must be cost-justifiable and in the best interest of the University.  Travel to the same destination should be coordinated with other University employees, when possible. A contract Air Carrier use worksheet is to be completed prior to flight arrangements.  When reserving a flight, please let the sales consultant know you are an FSU employee.
