You will receive more information about the group flight after you have been accepted into the program. You are responsible for making your own ground transportation arrangements to and from the airport from which the flight departs in the U.S.The group flight must have a minimum of 10 participants. Space on the group flight cannot be guaranteed after flight payment deadline of May 26, 2014.
