Air Travel

Please remember that before Travel Services can approve airfare for purchase, you must FIRST have an approved/locked form in TEM. Forms should be approved/locked before you call your travel agency.
In addition, if you use Bellingham Travel there is a daily deadline of 3:00pm – you need to confirm your airfare by 3:00pm. This gives Travel Services time to look-up, audit, and load airfare into our database.

If you have any questions, please contact Travel Services x3341 or
