When everyone is ready be should get them through customs

b) if the Assistant Tour Supervisor has to go in to attend to things, he should appoint a tour leader to approach customs. This is to safeguard our interests.

5) After the passengers have been cleared through customs, they should proceed to the exit gate, where our guide will meet them and show them to the coach. Request the driver to count numbers.

6) At about the same time, the baggage should be ready for collection. Check with the tour coordinator, the number of bags arrange for porters to load them on to coach.

a) In charter flight arrivals – bags to be unloaded first, should be loaded least, on to baggage lorry. And the lest guide at the Airport, should not leave until all the bags have been loaded and the driver is happy with the numbers.

7) Pay for porter age, there and then, and proceed to the hotel with the passengers.

14) As soon as it is convenient to you, take all the tickets to any MAS office and reconfirm them.

The Assistant tour supervisor is advised to go to the airport in case of a missing bag, so that he can remain behind to clear it. However it may not always be possible. Therefore, the whole task will fall back on the guide.


1) Check departure time of flights
If there is a delay, inform the hotel to make the Announcement using the paging system.
If it is known well beforehand, then the guide should inform each and a very passenger of the delay and switch the departure times accordingly

2) Coaches and baggage lorries have to be informed or reminded of the pick-up time.
For domestic flights, passengers should leave for the Airport 18 hours before departure.
For international flights, passengers should leave 2 hours before departure.

Guides should report half-hour before they are due to leave, to check baggage, etc. as in “check-out” procedures of hotel.

a) should the delay be for an hour or two, passengers must remain at the airport.
b) Should the delay be more than 7 hours, the passengers are to be taken back to the hotel. If this is the case, please telephone the coach to come back to the airport.
c) Should the delay be for long periods requiring extra meals and overnight accommodation, this will become the responsibility of the airlines. ours is to provide them with a transfer once the time is confirmed.

The bust policy in such cases would be always to consult the tour coordinator, before you make decision, as this becomes the responsibility of the Airlines (this applies only to international flights, as it unlikely for Domestic Flights to be delayed for such long periods)

It is always encouraged that all guides and tour supervisors be on good terms with Airline personnel. Never and under no circumstances should we push the Airlines or demand from them. Always be the first one to cooperate with them.
