Air Transat Jumpseat Agreement

The ALPA Jumpseat Aviation Committee`s “No Pilot Left Behind” initiative helps to ensure that any pilot who requires a seat on the aircraft receives, as far as possible, a seat in accordance with the captain`s regulatory assessment. This program encourages captains to approve and authorize each jumpseat request, challenge gate agents at the time of the “show” after boarding information, and contact Gate Agent prior to departure to protect the jumpseat privilege. Please send comments or suggestions to We will do our best to update these links and agreements. However, if you see something that needs to be updated, links, airlines, list instructions, etc., please let us know under Thank you very much and have fun traveling!

These guidelines are in place for a large number of reasons, including the deterrence of jumpseat abuse.

In addition to denying access to the Jumpseat, a pilot must immediately report suspected or known cases of jumpseat fraud to the Jumpseat President, the Safety President or the coordinator of his pilot group. For verification, see the “Jumpseat Airline Guidelines” section on our website to learn more about a particular airline`s practices and policies. Either way, the pilot should thank the flight crew on the way down. It is a professional politeness – and even the policy of some airlines – for airlines, including jumpseaters, to get off the plane last and avoid turnover movements. The dress code for using the Jumpseat is uniform, business or business casual, and check-in procedures vary by airport and airline. Allow enough time to check in either at the ticket office or at the door – or, in some cases, both. Visit the Jumpseat Policies Airlines section of ALPA`s JUMPSEAT website to learn more about a particular airline`s practices and policies. Seniority, First Come/First Served or a reservation system can be used for both corporate and offline pilots. In boarding priority, most airlines offer offline-jumpseat-rider after first come, first molding. Some airlines prioritize pilots from codeshare partners over other offline pilots….
