As it is a privilege that the airlines extend marine airfares to travelers in this specialized industry, we need to ensure that everyone using marine fares and the associated benefits are qualified. Therefore, we follow the airlines’ policies closely and advise our travelers to carry proof that they are indeed travelling for marine business purposes.
In all cases, people travelling with a marine or seaman air ticket MUST be traveling to/from or in connection with work of a private vessel over 100GWT. You MUST travel with a marine letter on the boat or company letterhead outlining the purpose of your travel. (Boat letterhead, management company letterhead or service company letterhead). You may be asked to produce this documentation during check-in at the airport. 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.
GMT’s marine airfares are available to most worldwide destinations, and have enabled many companies in the Private Yachting industry improve operating efficiencies and reduce costs considerably.
We offer a 24-hour ticketing service via any of our worldwide offices. All of our offices are owned and supported by GMT staff and are not subcontracted to any concessions. We hope you will contact us for a quote in the near future.
Global Marine Travel works directly with individuals as well as cruise lines and marine industry companies who engage GMT by contract for both one-off, dry-dock, new-build or regular crew rotations.
