It is vital that we receive flight details for arrival and departure flights at least two weeks before the flight. If you are staying in residential accommodation, arrival and departure times can be flexible. However, if you are staying in homestay, please be aware that hosts are not always prepared to or able to accept arrivals and departures during unsociable hours, namely 22.00 – 07.00 (this refers to arrival/departure time at the homestay, not at the airport – please check the estimated transfer time on our Airport Transfer Fees document to ensure the flight time is suitable).
If your child is under 16, please check with the airline’s regulations relating to ‘unaccompanied minors’. Different airlines have different policies and age limits for young persons. We can then ensure that we follow the correct procedures for your child’s arrival and departure. In some cases, extra costs may be incurred.
Airport Assistance Fee (Departures from UK Airports)
Many airline regulations require that children under 16 are checked in at the airport by an adult, who must accompany the child until one hour after departure from a UK airport. The School will arrange this service if the student is under 16 and taking a flight from the UK without an adult accompanying them. In this case, an airport assistance fee of £70 will be applied in addition to the taxi transfer fee.
