Pass Travel Enrollment Opened Today
December 5, 2018
Eligible employees may update their enrolled friend, spouse or domestic partner and regular buddy elections for 2019 beginning today December 4 through 7 p.m. CT on December 29, 2018. If you don’t make any updates, your eligible pass riders (family, extended family buddies and enrolled friends) will carry over to next year.
If you elected to have buddy passes in 2018 and have registered regular buddy pass riders, those travelers will not carry over to 2019, and their travel eligibility will end on December 31 at 11:59 p.m. CT. You will have to take action if you want to keep all or some of your regular buddy pass riders for 2019. Extended family buddies will not be affected. If you don’t have any changes to make and don’t have buddy passes, then no action is needed.
If you have two enrolled friends, you can designate your primary friend beginning January 1 through employeeRES > My Profile > Manage Profile > Traveler Profiles. The primary friend option enables eligible employees who do not have a spouse or domestic partner on their travel profile to select someone to board at the same boarding priority as a spouse or domestic partner.
To update your pass traveler elections, go to Travel > Manage pass riders. For more information on these programs, including questions and answers and an overview chart, go to the Pass Travel Enrollment page. If you still have questions, you can contact the Employee Travel Center through Help Hub. Details are available in the December 1, 2018 publication of E-Lines, available on unitedafa.org.
