The passenger confirms that his personal interest in taking the flight is to get acquainted to paragliding.

The arrival to the location is a matter of the passenger only. The standard ticket fees do  not include fees for tramways, cable cars and similar things. The inclusive ticket does include an ascent fee, but no further transportation costs (caused by weather or other extraordinary circumstances). A cross country flight may demand several appointments/show ups, due to the special needs required.
