What is Non-Revenue?

A non-revenue, or non-rev for short, refers to an airline employee or a family member passenger who takes advantage of the airline company perks to fly at a nominal cost or for free.

These passengers are called non-revenues or non-revs as they don’t account for any revenue for the airline.
