Airport Transfers

For our international students using our Airport Transfer service, documentation will be sent to parents to print, sign, scan and return by email to CMA. This document, which includes flight details gives permission to CMA staff to collect students at the airport and bring them to our camp and to return students to airport following the camp’s completion. Documentation is usually prepared two-three weeks prior to departure. Parents are asked to send the flight details as soon as they have them, and students should have boarding pass/airline tickets for return journey (international students). We ask parents to forward the flight details as soon as they have them to aengus@connemaramathsacademy.com Further important information regarding Airport Transfers is available here: Airport Transfer
