1 min read

The General Services Administration has awarded contracts to eight U.S. air carriers to help the federal government save more than $1.28 billion in air travel costs for fiscal year 2023.

Through firm-fixed-price agreements with the air carriers, the GSA City Pair Program will provide an estimated 45 percent discount on airfare rates for official government air travel, GSA reported Tuesday.

The awardees are:

  • Alaska Airlines
  • American Airlines
  • Delta Airlines
  • Hawaiian Airlines
  • JetBlue Airways
  • Silver Airways
  • Southwest Airlines
  • United Airlines

 

The agency selected the air carriers based on the availability of their service, the total number of flights, average elapsed flight time and service price.

“The GSA City Pair Program is a great example of the federal government working together for the common mission, and creating value and cost savings for the taxpayers,” said Sonny Hashmi, commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service as well as a previous Wash100 Award recipient.

The airfares purchased through the program have no cancellation or change fees and are fully refundable.
