TRAVEL INSTRUCTIONS FOR MISSIONARIES GOING TO THE MEXICO CITY MTC
Below is your e-ticketed itinerary for your travel to Mexico City. Please arrive at the airport at least 2 hours before your scheduled flight time.
Make sure to have your Sponsor Letter, FMM Instructions Sheet and a copy of your mission call letter with you! Please call the Church Travel Office if you have misplaced either of these items.
NAMETAGS- Will be issued at the Mexico MTC.
AIRLINE TICKET- You have been issued an ‘E-Ticket’. It is an electronic ticket. Actual ticket numbers are listed on the itinerary, therefore, at check- in you will only need to provide the airline the flight itinerary listed below.
PACKING – When packing your bags for your trip to Mexico City, pack a clean shirt, socks, garments, etc. in your carry-on bag. This is just in case your bags do not arrive with you in Mexico City. By being prepared, you can still look professional even though you may not have full use of your clothing.
AIRPORT – Upon arrival at the airport, go immediately to the airline’s check-in counter. Make sure to check your bags all the way to Mexico City then proceed directly to the boarding gate for your flight—check departure screens to make sure you go to the right gate. Board the flight as soon as seats are called so the flight will not be delayed and your seat will not be given away. Please be aware that it will be your responsibility to pay for your baggage fees from your home to the MTC.
EN ROUTE – At each connecting city where you change planes, go directly to the boarding gate and check in for your next flight. If your flight plans change en route, immediately call Church Travel and advise them of all the changes. Stay close to the departure gate so you will be aware of any updates or other changes.
DELAYED FLIGHTS – If, for any reason, your departure is delayed, call the Church Travel Office at 1-800-537-3537 as soon as you have been advised of the new schedule. If you call the Travel Office outside of regular business hours, you will get a recording. Press zero slowly twice to be connected to the church operator. They can help you get some assistance.
LOST BAGGAGE – If all your bags do not arrive with you at your final destination, you MUST file a “lost baggage report” with the baggage office of the airline on which you arrived before you leave the airport!
ONCE YOU ARRIVE IN MEXICO CITY, you will pass through immigration, you will then collect your baggage and pass through customs inspection. Please be courteous with all government and airline personnel. After passing through customs please exit the terminal, stepping to one side to avoid blocking the doorways. Please stay in a group with the other missionaries. There will be a greeter from the MTC waiting for you; please look for them. Should you arrive and no greeter is present, please call the MTC office at ***********Stay put, a driver will pick you up. DO NOT TAKE A TAXI OR ACCEPT A RIDE FROM OTHER INDIVIDUALS.
