Booking with Burkhalter

Deadline to Book Flight: May 15

The online form will close on May 15, so if you need to book your flight after that point, you will need to call Burkhalter directly and pay out of pocket. After May 15, ONS will only reimburse up to $400 of the ticket cost, so you will need to submit an expense report for up to $400 of the ticket cost. You will have to pay for the remainder of your flight cost and can bill it to your staff account by submitting an expense report to your supervisor.
