When and how do I expect to receive my ticket(s)?
Tickets are sent via courier services. In the UK, our customers are more likely to receive tickets via Registered Mail. For these services, a signatory must be present or else, the ticket will have to be picked up from certain location which will be told if a signatory is not found.

What is the difference between a direct flight and a non-stop flight?
A direct flight often stops on an airport for refueling but does not allow passengers to get off the plane. Hence, it is different from indirect flights where passengers are able to get off the plane, stay in some city before moving on spend time at the airport. A non-stop flight however, flies without any stop from one airport to the other and does not stop even for refueling.
What is the difference between scheduled and chartered flights?
Scheduled flights go from one destination to the other more than once a week at set times and are handled by airline companies. Chartered flights on the other hand, are chartered by holiday package providing companies and are cheap but then, lack facilities. In such flights, planes are often small with smaller foot rooms and seats that are not very comfortable.
Is it important to have the corrections made if the name is spelled wrongly on the ticket?
Yes, indeed it is very important to have the name changed if misspelled since people with varying information on passport and tickets and often not allowed to travel. To avoid any problems on the airports, it is a good option to keep all documentation organized well.
Are last minute reservations appreciated?
Last minute reservations are more often than not, unavailable and of at all they are available they are very expensive. Hence, it is a good option not to go for last minute reservations versus booking as early as possible.
