Everybody traveling with a marine/seaman ticket must be traveling to/from or in connection with work on board a vessel and should carry a letter of authorization/employment from the cruise line, manning agency, or company contracting the employee. Failure to produce proper documentation may result in denied boarding by the airline.
Once suitable flights are found and a method of payment agreed upon, we will ask you to confirm all details before issuing the ticket. Most tickets we issue are electronic tickets delivered via e-mail, however in certain circumstances; we still issue paper and prepaid tickets.
Are you eligible?
As it is a privilege that the airlines extend marine/seaman airfares to workers in this specialized industry, we need to ensure that everyone using marine fares and the associated benefits qualify. Therefore, we follow the airlines’ policies closely and advise our travelers to carry proof that they are indeed traveling for work purposes. Employees must carry documentation of eligibility in the form of a written letter detailing the reason for their travel. You may be asked to produce this documentation during check-in at the airport.
