If you work in a remote area, you may be eligible to salary package the cost of airfares to and from your usual place of residence to your workplace with the Fly-In, Fly-Out benefit.
Who can package this?
Employees who work in a remote area away from their usual place of residence, paying for their own flights to their point of embarkation. Only employees on a FIFO contract are eligible for this benefit.
What exactly can I package?
When you salary package the Fly-In, Fly-Out benefit, you nominate an amount for Maxxia to deduct each pay. Flights are then booked through Amex as Rio Tinto's Corporate Travel provider. Maxxia will then pay Amex directly on your behalf from the funds in your salary packaging account.
Note: the airfares must be incurred by you to be salary packaged, and not your associates, family or friends. The airfares must not be for holidays.
