Other information about UM

  • If the airline rejects the term “ACCORD école de langues staff” in the booking form, we will send you with the names and mobile numbers of the people likely to pick your child up a week before departure.
  • Please inform ACCORD that you have booked this UM service as the school will need to organise the relative transfer service. If you fail to inform us of the UM reservation, the airline company will not allow your child to arrivals until we receive confirmation that your child is a UM.

Very important: Do not forget to inform ACCORD if you are booking a UM service with the airline company.

  • If possible, try and choose a flight time within the hours suggested below (departure from school will be three hours before the flight) / Please choose flights leaving between 11am and 6 pm


Departure from Paris
If you book a U.M. service from the airline:

  • Check carefully if you are booking the one way service or the return service and inform the school
  • If you have booked a U.M service from the airline for the return trip departing from Paris, the school will have to charge you 340 euro for the transfer with UM, as this very long procedure will engage one member of staff for 6 hours or more. Should the flight be cancelled or postponed to the next day, the airline will give the responsibility of the child as well as all expenses (extra transport, accommodation and food) to the school.
