Hello,

1) Calculating to and fro for flight charges and taxi charges i request you to provide
around $ 390 USD

2) Also I don't wish to stay in twin sharing . It would be great if I can give the session and
revert back on the same day.

Thank You

Hello,

1) Calculating to and fro for flight charges and taxi charges i request you to provide

Please specify only the cost for airfare and also specify which city you're flying in from. If your travel request is approved, we'll arrange for a cab to pick you up from the airport.

2) Also I don't wish to stay in twin sharing . It would be great if I can give the session and
revert back on the same day.

Sure, that shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for the help to pick up and drop from Pune Air Port

I will be flying from Bangalore.In this case the taxi to and fro to airport will cost NOT less than $ 50 USD form the place we reside

The airfare roughly falls to $240 USD

So total of $ 290 USD should be a minimal requirement to meet the expense

Please help on that

Few points :

For the session timings it would great to have in mid day.I will check the flight timings and update you.
Please help on that

Also I am not available till this week Sunday 26 th afternoon online .So I can reply back on this ticket on 27 th based on your reply.

Thank You
