It is vital that we receive all the information for the departure and arrival at least one week 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 take into account the estimated transfer time on the previous page). When choosing your ﬂights, please bear in mind that late arrivals and very early departures from homestay may require us to find you temporary alternative accommodation on arrival/departure days. This is likely to result in significant extra cost.
If your child is under 16, please check 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. See ‘Airport UM Service’ below.
Groups of 9+ arriving into Heathrow (LHR) or Gatwick (LHR) – mandatory
Groups of 9+ arriving into other airports – optional
Individuals and small groups arriving by car/MPV – not required
A meet and greet service for groups can be arranged for groups of 9 or more passengers. This service will meet the group in the arrivals hall and take them to the transfer coach. This is a mandatory service for group arrivals of 9 or more passengers at London Heathrow (LHR) and London Gatwick (LGW) and will be automatically added to the transfer fee.
At other airports it is an optional service and group leaders may choose to do this themselves. Individuals and small groups arriving by car or MPV are personally met by the driver so do not need an extra meet and greet service.
(*) An additional £30 will be charged for car/MPV transfers for flights arriving between 22.00 and 05.00. Please note the “Flight Time Restrictions” above, which apply to homestay students.
An extra £10 is charged for each additional drop-off or pick-up to homestay locations. This applies to small group car or MPV arrivals taken directly to their accommodation addresses.
After the first two hours following the landing time, you will be charged £25 per hour pro rata for any delays. This is to cover the cost of parking and the driver’s time.
Many airline companies require that children under 16 are checked in at the airport by an adult, who must accompany the child until one hour before departure. The School will arrange this service if the student is under 16 and taking a flight to/from the UK without an adult accompanying them. In this case, the School will charge a one-off Airport UM Service fee of £70, covering both the arrival and the departure.
This service will include the following.
On arrival at the airport:
• the airline staff will meet the student and accompany him/her to meet the driver
For the departure flight:
• the driver will accompany the student to the check-in desk and introduce him/her to the airline staff
• the driver will wait at the airport until the plane leaves
