It sounds like a dream doesn’t it? Hopping onto a plane and taking a flight to the
destination of your choice. Imagine collecting your flight tickets to New York, London,
Goa – or wherever takes your fancy – and not having to pay a cent for them.
For a few people, this dream is actually a reality. How? Simply put they have

airport on time and meeting the courier companys representative at the destination
airport. As soon as you walk through the customs area at your destination, your job is
