It is common for there to be very slight changes in flight times. Unless the meetings times change, we will not inform parents of minor changes to flight timings.

Why are most flights not direct? In recent years BA and Norwegian Airlines have offered direct flights. BA have released very few group seats this year and Norwegian Airlines have cancelled their routes into Gothenburg. Therefore we have had to seek other routes to get everyone into Gothenburg.

Why are some flights not to Gothenburg? Rather than getting a connecting flight, we’ve arranged bus transfers from airports which are within driving distance of Gothenburg. This means players don’t have to wait around in airports for connecting flights and it reduces the travel time to Gothenburg. It also reduces the chances of bags going missing – a too common problem when changing planes or of missing connecting flights. We want a trouble free and as short a journey as possible so in some instances we’ve hired luxury coaches for the final leg of the journey.
