Counters open for check-in 6 hrs prior to departure. Duty passengers must be in line NO LATER THAN (NLT) **3 hrs 20 mins** prior to scheduled departure. Those passengers who arrive after the NLT time will be re-directed to Customer Service for further re-booking information or as PCS orders instruct.  Please check our 72hr Schedule for "Counters Open" times.

Duty Standby & Space Available Passengers
Roll calls are conducted at the AMC ticket counter 3 hours prior to departure.  It is recommended that passengers arrive approximately one or two hours prior to roll call time, in order to ensure time for processing.

Space Available seats are often limited, therefore, passenger planning and flexibility is key to Space Available travel.

There is no way to predict the chances of being selected as Space-Available passenger.

Many of our flights are fully booked or close to fully booked.  However, we have never had 100% of our passengers show for a flight.  We have passengers who arrive that are denied travel due to not being travel ready (i.e. incorrect/insufficient paperwork, incorrect passport/visa, etc.).  We also see passengers on official travel who have been advised to arrive at our terminal without a confirmed seat to attempt Standby travel, which takes priority over Space-Available travel.  There are many other factors that play into passenger selection such as: weight allowances, weather, how many passengers mark present for the flight, much of this information is not known until the roll call time.

At this time, Space Available passengers can only be marked present at the ticketing counter during our processing hours.  Processing hours are notated on our 72hr Schedule.  You must be marked present no later than 1 hour prior to roll call.  Selection is based upon your travel category and the date and time of your sign up.  The time you mark present does not bare weight upon the selection process. 

To request a sign up, you would email a copy of your travel documentation to:

Active duty members need to be within their chargeable leave dates in order to sign-up. We will need to see a copy of your leave paperwork, EML form and any other necessary documents.

Dependents will need to present a copy of their Space-Available travel letter and EML form (if using)..
