Airline Policy with regards to Marine Airfares
As it is a privilege that the airlines extend marine airfares to workers in this specialized industry, we as service providers need to ensure that everyone using marine fares and the associated benefits qualify. Therefore, we follow the airlines’ policies closely and advise our travellers to carry proof that they are indeed traveling for work purposes. Employees must carry documentation e.g., Valid Passport, CDC, Letter of Contract of eligibility in the form of a written letter detailing the reason for their travel. You may be asked to produce this documentation during check-in at the airport.
All crewmembers traveling with a marine/seaman ticket must be traveling to/from or in connection with work onboard a vessel and should carry a letter of authorization/employment from the cruise line, manning agency, or company contracting the employee. Failure to produce proper documentation may result in denied boarding by the airline.

Precautions that Seamen should follow before Travel
If you are a maritime professional or planning to become one, then sooner or later you will have to get used to traveling – an integral part of the shipping profession. Frequent traveling from one country to another to reach destination ports and ships makes lives of maritime professionals physically and mentally stressing. Moreover visiting new countries having different rules, customs, and traditions means dealing with a new set of laws every time.
The fact is most of these problems can be solved by being a bit aware of the situation you can get into while traveling in foreign lands. Learn about seven common problems seafarers can face while traveling to foreign lands.
Note: Before commencing your journey, ensure that you have checked your shipping contract, appointment letter and “OK to Board” letter properly. The contact number of local officer personnel, foreign agents, and other important people will be issued by the company few days before joining the ship. Make sure that you note them down properly and keep them with you all the time.
