The Postal Service is reminding employees that they will soon see an additional fee of $1.60 on their travel itineraries for City Pair Program flights booked and purchased through Omega World Travel.
This change takes effect Friday, March 1.
Employees should use eTravel to claim the agency fee charged by Omega, just as employees have done with other fees in the past.
The City Pair Program, administered by the U.S. General Services Administration, offers lower airfares than comparable commercial travel.
USPS employees must use GetThere or Omega World Travel for all official business travel, including flights, trains, hotels and rental cars. Employees aren’t permitted to book directly using other providers or by contacting travel or transportation companies directly.
