Please refer to this information when making your domestic flight arrangements to your selected international gateway. Please do not book domestic flights before receiving final flight schedules from us. Please note that the schedules can change frequently, we strongly suggest that you leave plenty of connecting time between flights.
Be sure to arrive at your international gateway at least 3½ hours prior to the international departure time. Allow a similar amount of time for the return trip. If you are traveling during the month of March or mid-October to mid-November, please note that each year the airlines traditionally undergo flight schedule changes during this time, when Daylight Savings Time begins and ends. Please note that we may only be notified of these schedule changes 60 days or less prior to your tour departure. If you are booking flights separately from your home city to connect with the included flights, we strongly suggest that you allow a 5 - 5 ½ hours connection time between these flights. This can help prevent any problems that may arise from unexpected airline schedule changes and prevent the unlikely event of missing your flight. Friendly Planet cannot be held responsible for airline schedule changes. Please note the following schedules show only the Southbound and Northbound flights, so that you can arrange domestic flights from/to your home city.
