Our AFS partners will purchase a through ticket to the airport(s) linked to your team. Students will be linked to the airport and our partners will be sent an email with the airport and arrival/departure dates. As has been the case in the past, an AFS volunteer will be required to meet the student at the airport.
As with our NH19 departures and due to airline flight schedules, host families will be expected to drive up to 2- 2 1/2 hours to the closest major airport, or a volunteer will need to pick up the student and drive them to the host community.
Our Travel and Logistics Coordination (TLC) department will work with our partners to confirm international flights and to ensure they meet our booking requirements. We expect that international flight details will be viewable in Global Link approximately 2 weeks prior to arrival.
