Campus Notice
University of California, San Diego

June 20, 1996
SUBJECT: Notice of Availability of Airfare Discounts to Governmental Entities Airline Antitrust Settlement - Availability of Airfare Discount
Last summer, a notice was transmitted to the campus explaining that as a result of the settlement of the class action antitrust suit against the Airline Tariff Publishing Company on behalf of government travelers, a ten percent
(10%) discount on airfare was available. This discount applies to domestic travel on participating airlines and commuter carriers for any approved, official University travel.
This is to remind you that this discount will be available for your use until February 9, 1997 or until total discounts to eligible governmental entities of $40 million has been reached, whichever occurs first.
Application of this discount represents one of the lowest possible airfares that UCSD travelers will be able to obtain. It appears that many travel agencies are not advising UCSD travelers on the availability of this discount.
For complete details, please refer to the Disbursement's Home Page, Travel Section:
Please read the terms of the settlement before attempting to use the discount and be advised that use of this discount for travel other than for official university business may
constitute fraud and will be prosecuted to the extent allowed by law.
It is recommended that you purchase these tickets through a travel agent. The agent must enter special codes to apply
the discount to your ticket. You may use any local travel agent if you intend to apply this discount to your flight (you might refer them to the WWW Home Page for complete guidelines).
You may also contact UCSD's preferred travel agency, Balboa Travel Services, who will automatically apply this discount to qualified travel:
