Note: Airline reservations (for the program departure/return dates) will be made for the participant with EVA Air. The participant, however, is responsible for contacting the agent to arrange ticketing/payment (usually required within one to two weeks of making reservations). A participant who chooses alternative departure and/or return dates, or wishes to use another airline, will be solely responsible for making and confirming these arrangements.
