The majority of airlines release their flight schedules between ten and eleven months in advance of today’s date. STA Travel will only book flights where we can guarantee a confirmed seat for our customers.

If you are planning a round the world trip, your consultant may need to book in dates for the final legs of your journey i.e. confirmed seats for the routing but not the dates you actually want to travel.

This is because the price you pay for your ticket is dependent on the route you choose and the airline needs to see the destinations and number of stops you want in order to confirm the fare.
