Commercial air travel is recommended for business purposes.
Airline tickets for faculty, staff, students, and registered volunteers traveling on official UNLV business may be purchased from a travel agency, directly from the airline, or via the internet. If a service fee is added to the price of the ticket or reservation, that charge must be included in the invoice.
Travelers should purchase airfare in advance to allow for discounted rates. Only coach/economy class airfare should be purchased for travelers.
Airfare requests should be submitted by travelers for their supervisor’s approval through Workday via a spend authorization. Once travel is completed, an expense report must be submitted within fourteen days to ensure reimbursements are processed accurately. If a PCard is used to make purchases, a PCard verification must be submitted within seven days after the end of the purchase billing cycle.
