2. Identifying Purpose of Collection We will need you to provide us with certain personal information whenever you purchase airline tickets or make a flight booking. This personal information may include your name, address, telephone number, credit card number and the credit card’s expiry date. We require this information to identify you, contact you, if necessary, and to complete the process of your purchase. We may also request your gender to assist in estimating the aircraft’s total load and as an additional identifier. If you request a customized service we need to collect additional personal information.
Special Meals Some of Take Flight Group/Air Partners Corp.’s flights include special meals to account for a range of dietary requirements e. Requests for special meals must be made at the time you book your flight. If you are able to make such a request the information must be recorded in your travel booking. This information is then transferred to the applicable catering service as well as the flight crew.
Special Assistance We offer a range of travel services to individuals requiring special assistance. We also do our best to make your travel with us as comfortable as possible. Safety and comfort are always top priorities at Take Flight Group/Air Partners Corp. To assure the safety and comfort of our passengers and crew we need to know of any special requirements for assistance. In certain situations a Take Flight Group/Air Partners Corp. doctor will need to contact your personal physician in order to ensure that all necessary precautions for your safety and enjoyment are made. This information will be forwarded to the airport staff as well as to the flight crew.
In certain airports we outsource the ground handling to another airline. If that is the case, we need to transfer the information to the handling airline. If your travel includes a transfer from Take Flight Group/Air Partners Corp. to another airline the requirement for special assistance may also be transferred so that the receiving airline can accommodate you as best as possible.
Unaccompanied Minors Children between the ages of five to eleven may travel alone on provisions for the unaccompanied minor to be escorted by Take Flight Group/Air Partners Corp. agents and/or flight attendants. The service must be requested at the same time the child’s flight is booked by the child’s parent/guardian. Upon arrival at the airport, the child’s parent or guardian will be required to complete “a request for carriage” form. The information on this form identifies the child and their flight itinerary as well as the identification and contact names of the people meeting the child at the transfer points or final destination. We also require the name, address and a contact telephone number and authorizing signature of the parent or guardian authorizing the request for travel. This information is required in order to assure the safety of the child. From the moment they arrive at airport check-in, until they reach their final destination, all children are escorted and supervised by our staff. If the travel itinerary includes a transfer, ground staff will escort the child and see him/her safely onboard the connecting flight. If the child’s travel plans include another airline we must transfer the information so that the receiving airline may continue this safe and efficient process.
Because of the additional security precautions necessary to protect children, bookings for unaccompanied minors (8-11 years old) cannot be made online at www.takeflightgroup.com.
