If your flight arrives on Sunday between 08:00 and 18:00, we will pick you up from Kota Kinabalu Airport. Meet our transfer coordinator, who will meet you at the International/Domestic Arrival Hall, depending on your flight. He/she will carry a placard with Green Lion International Logo and arrange your transport to the hostel.. Any other times outside of this window, no pickup included. Make your own way to us, or arrange a pickup at an additional cost.
Please note: If you arrive early, you need to arrange your own transportation from the airport to your chosen accommodation. Then, on the arrival day, we can pick you up at the accommodation by 14:00 and take you to the hostel.
What to do, if...
...you are outside the arrival hall but can’t find our Transfer Coordinator?
Go to the nearby seats, sit down, rest and try calling our Transfer Coordinator (phone number below). If they don’t answer on the first try, keep trying. If they still don’t answer after a few tries, call the emergency number (below).
...you can’t reach all of our emergency contact persons on the phone.
Please send them a text message and wait. They might be busy and will get back to you shortly. If for some reason they don’t get back to you, try again.
...you don’t get an answer on your messages
Stay at the seating area. We will meet you there in any case.
***DO NOT LEAVE THE MEETING POINT, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRAVEL TO OUR CENTER ON YOUR OWN.***
If you arrive much earlier than the pickup window, you can choose to:
- Request extra accommodation and pickup from us at an additional cost OR: Accommodate yourself until you can meet your coordinator at a meeting point
We strongly discourage arriving after your pickup window, as it may take longer for you to settle into your program. But if unavoidable, you must either:
- Make your own way to us OR: Request a special pickup at an extra cost.
Please be aware that drop off departures are not included in the program in order to provide flexibility for participant’s different plans and return flight times. Of course if you require assistance, your Local Coordinators will always be more than happy to assist you with your return transfer or onward travel plans. Last check-out time is 12:00
