MIR’s in-house, full service air department is available to assist our travelers with their air travel needs.

We tailor itineraries to each person’s specific needs, and work with our preferred carriers to offer convenient itineraries and competitive rates to the tour arrival and departure cities in our regions.

Tour dates are based on the land tour only.

Airfare varies depending on a wide variety of factors, such as dates of travel, seat availability, special airline promotions, how restrictive ticket changes are, how long the fares can be held without purchase, routing considerations such as stopovers, and more.

MIR works with our preferred carriers to get the most competitive pricing for your itinerary:

  • Lufthansa
  • United Airlines
  • Austrian Airlines
  • Swiss Air
  • Air Canada
  • Turkish Airlines
  • Emirates Airlines
  • *Other carriers available

Payment for air tickets that are not part of the land tour is due upon confirmation and may be made by credit card or check according to the acceptance policies of the carrier. Fares, taxes, and fuel surcharges remain subject to change until ticketed.

Should you decide to take on the responsibility of making your own arrangements (including mileage-based reservations), please supply MIR with a copy of your air itinerary showing arrival and departure flights at the time of final payment for your land tour.

Mileage tickets and upgrades must be arranged on your own.

We do not provide air-only arrangements; air tickets must be purchased in conjunction with a MIR tour.
