Airfare Stipend
If you requested the airfare stipend, you will be reimbursed up to $2,000 for a round-trip ticket between your home city and Kansai International Airport (KIX), and ground transportation between KIX and the event location during the official meeting dates, contingent on attending the full meeting. Please book your flights as soon as possible. You must use our travel agency, Executive Travel Associates (ETA). They are familiar with Academy travel rules associated with international travel and are working with us to keep travel costs down. They will charge the ticket to your personal credit card and NAE will reimburse you after the meeting. Contact ETA at nas@exectravel.com or 1.800.660.0031 to book your ticket and reference travel code NAE110028. If your trip will incorporate travel to another city for other business or travel outside the immediate meeting dates, please contact Elizabeth Weitzmann (eweitzmann@nae.edu) prior to booking your flight. 

Travel Expense Report
Those requesting the airfare stipend need to submit a travel expense report. The report must be submitted within 30 days. Contact Elizabeth Weitzmann for further detailed instructions once travel has been completed. Please be sure to save a copy of your airline receipt to submit with your eTER.
