Ethics and Compliance

Depending on the scenario, a so called “facilitation fee” paid to an airport employee may be considered a bribe under various anti-bribery laws. And if your handler pays a bribe on your behalf, you, your company, and your passengers could be prosecuted for the bribe.

At Universal, we’ve set a high standard among trip support providers with our industry-leading Ethics and Compliance program. By partnering with us, you can be confident we are taking the necessary steps to help your organization operate in a compliant manner.
