Useful Flying Information
At Netflights.com there's useful travel information throughout the website, including travel essentials to consider when planning that precious holiday time and advice from our holiday experts on choosing that perfect destination...
Visa Waiver Program - ESTA
If you're travelling to the USA, rules introduced in 2009 require you to complete the Visa Waiver Program immigration forms before you travel, under the ESTA scheme. (More information from new small page on Visa Waiver Program – we'll create a page dedicated to this and link to it)
Official guidelines advise completing the Visa Waiver Program forms 72 hours before travel.
Advanced Passenger Information - API
Some countries now require Advanced Passenger Information. This information is required for all passengers before travel can commence. Participating countries include Dubai, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, China and the USA. You can include the relevant information when booking, or by contacting a Customer Services advisor on 0844 846 8000.
If you're booking flights – especially if you're flying long-haul – there are differences between airlines which may help you choose the best one for your individual requirements.
Our Legroom Chart is a useful guideline to show variations in seat pitches where they exist on different airlines and routes.
Stopovers are often available and are popular on long-haul routes. If you're making a long flight, a stopover can be a great idea – why not extend your holiday and see somewhere new on the way? The Stopover Guide lists available stopover locations by destination and airline.
It's really important to know what the limits are for baggage weight before you travel, if you want to avoid expensive excess baggage charges. See our information on Baggage Allowances to keep track of the constantly changing regulations for different airlines.
