Rustic Pathways offers escorted group flights from North America to Brisbane, Australia (BNE). Students leaving from the United States may either depart on one of our chaperoned group flights from a gateway airport (see pricing below) or may choose to arrange their own airfare to their destination country with our Self-Managed Airfare. Students on chaperoned group flights are responsible for arranging their own domestic travel to our gateway city.

Students joining our programs from outside the United States are responsible for arranging their own travel to their destination. You will be provided with specific arrival and departure time windows. Arriving or departing outside these windows may incur special transportation arrangements and fees. Students may alternatively choose to join one of our chaperoned group flights departing from one of our United States gateway airports in which case they would be responsible for arriving to and departing from that gateway airport. Please reach out to your Personal Travel Advisor to confirm specific arrival and departure airports and times.

International Airfare
Students departing from outside North America are responsible for making all their own airfare arrangements. Some programs may have additional internal airfare costs. Please reference the program page for details.
