Flight Package

The Hub Airport designated by the Company for the Consultant will be located in the United Kingdom and will be the most cost effective option available to the Company at the time of booking a flight. Operational effectiveness will also be considered when booking the flight. Such Hub Airport may not be the one geographically closest to Consultant’s residence and, as such, may require Consultant paying for the cost to and from such airport or making up the difference if Consultant resides outside the United Kingdom.

If the cost to deploy GW Contractor from his local airport hub to Kuwait is more than GBP750.00 then any additional costs will be borne by the contractor and deducted from his fees by the company.
