Nonrevenue Passenger Law and Legal Definition

Pursuant to 14 CFR 217.1 [Title 14 -- Aeronautics And Space Chapter Ii -- Office Of The Secretary, Department Of Transportation (Aviation Proceedings)], the term Nonrevenue passenger means “a person traveling free or under token charges, except those expressly named in the definition of revenue passenger; a person traveling at a fare or discount available only to employees or authorized persons of air carriers or their agents or only for travel on the business of the carriers; and an infant who does not occupy a seat.”

According to 14 CFR 158.3 [Title 14 Aeronautics and Space; Chapter I Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation; Subchapter I Airports; Part 158 Passenger Facility Charges (PFC's); Subpart A General], Nonrevenue Passenger means “a passenger receiving air transportation from an air carrier or foreign air carrier for which remuneration is not received by the air carrier or foreign air carrier as defined under Department of Transportation Regulations or as otherwise determined by the Administrator. Air carrier employees or others receiving air transportation against whom token service charges are levied are considered nonrevenue passengers. Infants for whom a token fare is charged are also considered nonrevenue passengers.”
