Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 90 / Wednesday, May 11, 2005 / Notices Practices Act of 1974 (49 U.S.C. 1517) (Fly America Act) requires that all Federal agencies and Government contractors and subcontractors use U.S. flag air carriers for U.S. Governmentfinanced international air transportation of personnel (and their personal effects) or property, to the extent that service by those carriers is available. It requires the Comptroller General of the United States, in the absence of satisfactory proof of the necessity for foreign-flag air transportation, to disallow expenditures from funds, appropriated or otherwise established for the account of the United States, for international air transportation secured aboard a foreignflag air carrier if an U.S. flag carrier is available to provide such services. In the event that the contractor selects a carrier other than an U.S. flag air carrier for international air transportation, the contractor shall include a certification on vouchers involving such transportation. The contracting officer uses the information furnished in the certification to determine whether adequate justification exists for the contractor’s use of other than an U.S. flag air carrier. B.
