The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) and UNC Travel & Expenses have worked together to create the Fly America Act Waiver Request Form. This form has been added to OSR’s Forms and Tools webpage in the Prior Approval and Waiver Section. These requests must be completed and attached to the travel request in Concur or WebTravel.

Fly America Act Waiver Request Form

  • This form is a statement executed by the traveler and/or Principal Investigator (PI) justifying the use of a foreign-flag air carrier for travel charged to a federally sponsored project.
  • The cost of travel subject to the Fly America Act that does not adhere to this regulation will be borne by the Principal Investigator’s department or will need to be moved to a suitable non-sponsored funding source.
  • Exceptions must be documented prior to travel and pre-approved by the Travel Office. In no case is the use of a foreign air carrier justified because of cost, convenience, or traveler preference.
