Fly America Act When traveling using federal funds, travelers are required to use an airline that is designated as a U.S. flag carrier for every portion of the route per the Fly America Act (49 U.S.C. 40118).  To determine if the flight complies with Fly America, look at the flight number on the boarding pass or flight coupon and verify that it begins with the abbreviation of the U.S. flag carrier (ex: Delta flight DL# 1234).  There are very few exceptions to the Fly America Act. If you believe you meet one of the exceptions, please complete the Fly America Act Checklist for Federal Funds form (found in the Sponsored Programs’ Forms Library) and turn it into the Office of Sponsored Programs with supporting documentation for approval PRIOR to purchasing the flight.  Some exceptions requiring a waiver include: when a U.S. flag carrier is not available on a particular route; when using a U.S. flag carrier would increase the number of aircraft changes outside the U.S. by 2 or more; extend travel time by 6 hours or more; or require a connecting time of 4 hours or more at an overseas interchange point.
