Airfare Tips and Planning
We suggest that you start looking for airfares with kayak.com
1. Enter the “to” airport as “FRA”, which is Frankfurt Germany International Airport
2. If you’re departing from the USA, you’ll need to depart one day prior to the first tour date.
Example: If you need to be at the Frankfurt airport on April 29, you need to depart the USA
on April 28th. Flights from the USA range from 7-10 Hours. Germany is 6 hours ahead of the Eastern time zone and 9 hours ahead of the Pacific time zone in the USA.
3. For your return flight, choose the day after the tour ends. If you’re attending a trip that ends April 29th, you would depart for home the day after, on April 30th.
Pay close attention to flight arrival and departure times, as you’ll need to meet your group at a specific time and you won’t want to catch your return flight too early in the morning. Also note the layover time if your flight has a stop on the way. Avoid those long layovers.
Try to catch a flight that arrives at Frankfurt before 12:00 noon local time. Try to book flights that depart Germany noon or later. Remember, you’re required to be at the airport at least 2 hours before your flight departs. Kayak.com should give you a good idea of flight costs.
Before you book, also check these sites for airfares:

New York Kennedy
Don’t just try booking for the exact days needed; often if you arrive a day early or stay a day or two longer fares can go lower. Some airlines require 7 days of travel for lower fares. Due to this reason we allow you to add extra days to a 6 day tour.
