Tri-Council Monthly Tip - Air Travel

Air Travel

Economy air travel often includes more than one class of travel.  For example, Air Canada economy rates may include “Tango”, “Flex”, or “Latitude”, with “Tango” being the most economical and “Latitude” being the least economical air fare.  Price differences between these fares can be significant.  The Tri-Council Agencies (NSERC, SSHRC, and CIHR) stipulate the lowest fare available must be used for air travel.  Therefore, if all three economy classes of travel are available, the expectation is the “Tango” air fare may be claimed.
