Other Than Economy/Coach (OTE) Class Air Request

(Formerly Premium Class Air Request)

 

JTR par. 020206-J requires a traveler to use economy or coach class accomodations for airline transporation except in emergent or special circumstances prescribed in JTR par. 020206-J and par. 020206-K.  For instances where other than economy/coach (OTE) class accommodations are necessary, NPS may request approval for such upgrades from the Director, Navy Staff.  All requests must include:

  • SD 0817 - Traveler's Request for Premium Class Travel
  • Other Than Economy/Coach Class Transportation Approval Checklist
  • Other Than Economy/Coach Class Travel Request

If the reason why OTE class is required is to accommodate a medical or special need, the following is also required:

  • Medical Documentation from Physician
  • Reasonable Accommodation

 

The NPS Travel Office utilizes Microsoft Office 365 to automate and process OTE Requests to the greatest extent feasible.
