**Please review this page carefully as it will be updated before and during the semester to provide the most current information regarding flights and travel.**
Group Flight Itinerary
Itinerary information will be posted as soon as it becomes available, typically mid-spring.
Independent Students & Flight Credits
Students who choose to fly to Thessaloniki separately from the group flight will receive a flight credit on their Spring 2016 bill equal to the cost of one group flight airline ticket. The exact amount of that credit will be determined later in 2015, typically in late Fall. Please note that if a student flies any leg of the group flight (for example, if they fly on the group flight from Boston to Thessaloniki, but then fly back from Thessaloniki straight to their final destination) they will not receive a flight credit.
Required Travel Forms
Flight Information Form
To ensure the safety of all participants, both students traveling on the Group Flight and those traveling independently must provide N.U.in with the details of their itinerary, including any and all connecting flights. Students will receive an email prompting them to provide these flight details prior to departure.
N.U.in students intending to fly on the Group Flight must submit the Group Flight Reservation Form, either online, or by faxing or emailing a paper copy to Advantage Travel. Details regarding baggage restrictions, deviations, routing changes, stopovers, and other airline policies and regulations are included on the form. This form is still being finalized. Participants will be notified when it is available, along with the deadline to reserve a seat on the group flight. Students who have specific questions about travel arrangements should contact Advantage Travel directly.

Travel & Arrival
Students on the Group Flight receive itineraries and instruction via email prior to departure, though we always recommend checking with the airline on the day of travel to stay abreast of any flight delays or changes in schedule. Once they have landed, students will be picked up by buses and transported to their residence hall.
On the last day of the program, students on the Group Flight home will be shuttled from the hotel to the airport and arrive 3 hours prior to the departure time, ensuring that all participants have ample time to check in. The group will then go through the security checkpoint together.Important Numbers
