Reduced Cost Flights

KES International is negotiating with major airlines to make available reduced price flight tickets for delegates to our Gold Coast conferences. Further details will be posted here as soon as they are available.

Note that flight schedules and prices are made available by airlines 11 months before the flight, which in the case of SDF-18 and SST-18 will be July 2017. The best prices are often available early.
