Our commitment to the environment
This operator has led the way in reducing the use of valuable paper resources by introducing paperless ticketing. We began 4 years ago and now, approaching our fifth season of operating this system, the majority of our flights are paperless.
You simply produce your itinerary or booking reference at the check-in desk along with your passport and you will receive your boarding pass. Representatives are on hand at most of our airports to help if you have any problems.
We also offer you the opportunity to compensate for the emissions caused by your flight.

North American Travel Options
Online check-in services
Most of our transatlantic scheduled services offer online check-in services via their own websites. This enables you to bypass the queues at the airport, pre-reserve your seats and print your boarding pass ready to go.
Once at the airport you can drop your bags to be tagged and proceed straight to customs and immigration.
To check-in online, all you will need is you airline locator (reference number which will be on your itinerary) and names of the passengers flying. Online check-in generally opens 24 hours before departure and closes 2 hours before.
Recent events have lead to security at all major airports being increased. This will add to your journey time so please ensure you leave plenty of time to clear check-in, customs, immigration and security. We strongly advise you check recommended check-in times with the airline you are travelling with.
Visa waiver programe
Effective 12th January 2009, all passengers travelling to the United States without a US visa under the terms of the visa waiver programme must obtain pre-authorisation via the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA). Applications can be submitted at any time but no later than 72 hours prior to travel. Failure to do so could result in you being refused boarding and travel. Authorisation is valid for 2 years. For more information and to complete the form go to http://www.cbp.gov/ESTA
Advanced Pasenger Information Service (APIS)
In light of the heightened security on international flights to North America, you are required to provide specific information before you can enter the US or Canada. This would normally be done at the check-in desk but you can avoid this by entering the required APIS data via the appropriate airline’s online check-in service. The information required varies slightly but will generally include:
• Passport number
• Country which issued the passport
• Given name as appears on the passport (which must match the reservation)
• Last name
• Date of birth
• Country of residence
• Destination address in the US
All British Airways customers are required to provide advance passenger information prior to travel to the United States. Please go to BA.com and click on ‘Manage my Booking’. Enter your BA locator which can be found on your itinerary along with the surname of the lead passenger. Then go to the section marked ‘Advance Passenger Information’ and complete the details required. Failure to do so could mean boarding is denied by the airline.
Pre-boking of seats on North American scheduled flights
We can on occasion pre-reserve your seat numbers at the time of booking. There are a limited number of seats released for pre-reservation by the airline before check-in. Please note that pre-reserved seats are not guaranteed and subject to cancellation or amendment at the airlines discretion, although this is very rare. Please also note that bulk head and emergency exit seats cannot be prereserved. These are only available at the time of check in and at the airport only.
Please just send an email to email@example.com or call 01350 728869 for car hire details.
