ZED Fare – What is a ZED Fare?

 

A ZED Fare is a special fare/agreement between airlines to allow employees to travel on a space available basis.

The next question in the Passrider Q&A series is from Albert Via e-mail, he asks:

 

“Not familiar with ZED fares. Where can I get info and prices?”

 

 

I’ve prepared a video with the information he requested.

  1. Do you know if express Jet has decided what 2015 will look like for it’s pass riders. I don’t think it has even had open enrollment for 2015. Our status is only good till Feb. 1st.

  3. Hi,

    How do we classify who gets checked in first according to ZED? is it the fare basis or the zones??

    Please advise.

    Kind regards,
    Sela

    1. Hi Sela,

      That’s a good question indeed. I’d say that this will vary by airline. I think that its usually by the relationship that each airline has with the host airline coupled with your time of check-in. So if its say a Star Alliance carrier then other Star Alliance airlines would be first and within that some sort of priority.

  5. Kerwin,

    Nice website. Thank you for your time. I can buy a ZED fare pass DFW-SLC. If I make it to SLC on my carrier, can I use that pass in the opposite direction SLC-DFW?

    Thank you,

    Tim

  7. My companion is planning to go to CDG from LAX using ZED on XL Airways, I wonder if he will need to be with me in order to travel or he can go straight to the gate of XL Airways?

    1. Hi Ken,

      Great question. First, I suggest contacting the pass travel office at FedEx and they will let you know with whom they have a relationship and how they book them.

      I can answer general questions, but none specific to FedEx.

      Let me know if this helps in any way.

      Thanks.
      Kerwin.

  11. hi kerwin. I found a site that is very helpful when sitting on the ramp and trying to determine your position in the lineup and location on the airfield. as a ground worker i can tell when my aircraft enters and leaves the deicing pad or gate. it gives real-time location according to your flight number. hope you enjoy. http://airportviewer.com/
