Travel Non-Direct Routes

Will your airfare include non-direct routes?

Non-direct routes are flights that depart from and/or return to airports/locations other than Eugene, OR. These itineraries are allowable if:

  • the traveler can provide a business purpose

OR

  • if a Comparison Quote (described above) has been obtained in advance of travel at the time of airfare purchase

Please note that while airfare out of Portland (PDX) is often cheaper than airfare out of Eugene, a Comparison Quote is still a requirement for reimbursement.

If the cost captured in the Comparison Quote is less than the actual airfare, the traveler may be required to pay the difference. Please note on your Travel Approval Request Form if your intended travel will include non-direct route(s).
