3. FORMATION OF CONTRACT FOR CHARTER AND/OR ADDIITONAL SERVICES
3.1 On receipt of the booking confirmation form from You, both EACL and You will be bound by these Conditions, subject always to the confirmation from the Operator that the Aircraft is still available to carry out the Flight Schedule. Once this confirmation has been received from the Operator, the charter will be confirmed with You by EACL (the “Confirmed Charter”).
3.2 Performance of the Flight Schedule is conditional on all necessary authorisations, including but not limited to airport permissions and/or permission to takeoff and land and/or departure and landing slots and/or times, being obtainable..
3.3 On receipt of the booking confirmation form from You, both EACL and You will be bound by these Conditions, subject always to the confirmation from the Additional Services Provider that the Additional Services can still be supplied in accordance with any Additional Services Itinerary. Once this confirmation has been received from the Additional Services Provider, the Additional Services will be confirmed with You by EACL (the “Confirmed Contract”).

3.4 Please note that generally Your Confirmed Charter and/or Confirmed Contract will be with EACL under these Conditions. However, EACL appreciates that there may occasionally be circumstances when You do not wish to enter into a Confirmed Charter and/or Confirmed Contract directly with EACL but for reasons unknown to EACL You request that EACL merely introduces You to an aircraft operator and/or an additional service or product provider (“Third Party Supplier” for the purposes of these Conditions) so that You may enter into a contract for aircraft charter and/or the additional services or products directly with the Third Party Supplier and not EACL.
3.5 Where EACL agrees to introduce You to an aircraft operator and/or additional services provider in accordance with clause 3.4 above, EACL acts as a disclosed marketing agent for the sole purpose of soliciting Your custom on behalf of the Third Party Supplier but You acknowledge that EACL does not have any authority to actually enter into any contract with the Third Party Supplier on Your behalf (“Marketing Agent” for the purposes of these Conditions) and for the avoidance of doubt the contract between the Third Party Supplier and You will only be formed when the Third Party Supplier and You formally agree this and EACL is not a party to this contractual relationship. Any queries or concerns relating to the contract where EACL has so introduced You to the Third Party Supplier should be addressed to the Third Party Supplier directly. The name and address, plus contact details, for most Third Party Suppliers may appear in any order confirmation the Third Party Supplier sends You.
3.6 In accordance with clause 3.5 above, EACL does not assume any responsibility and shall not be liable to You for, and makes no representations or warranties (express or implied) about the suitability or quality of, all or any part of the aircraft charter and/or additional services and/or any other products and/or services provided by the Third Party Supplier as a consequence of Your requested that EACL introduce You to the Third Party Supplier.
3.7 The Third Party Supplier's terms and conditions (including without limitation its joint or separate terms and conditions of carriage and/or provision of additional services), [a] cop[y][ies] of which You should obtain from the Third Party Supplier if not annexed to the Schedule to and located at the end of these Conditions, will apply in addition to these Conditions. In the event of any discrepancy between the Third Party Supplier’s terms and conditions and these Conditions to the extent only that they apply where EACL acts as Marketing Agent and You contract directly with
a Third Party Supplier, then these Conditions apply. The Third Party Supplier's terms and conditions may include provisions relating to payment procedures, default, liability, cancellations, changes of bookings and refunds (if available) and any other restrictions. In addition to clause 8.3
below, You are strongly advised to obtain and read carefully the Third Party Supplier's terms and conditions prior to contracting directly with the Third Party Supplier and to refer to Your particular Third Party Supplier for full details as to its applicable terms and conditions.
3.8 You are responsible for complying with any airline or other Third Party Supplier conditions in relation to check-in times, reconfirmation of flights, or other matters whether relating to any additional service, product or otherwise. You also accept that the crew of the Aircraft are the servants and agents of the operator and shall be authorised to tale instructions only from the operator unless otherwise agreed by the operator in writing prior to commencement of the Flight Schedule.

4.5 Should the Confirmed Charter Aircraft(s) or the means of providing any Additional Services become unavailable for any reason (whether before or after the commencement of the first part of either the Flight Schedule and/or Additional Services Itinerary), EACL will use its reasonable efforts to find another suitable Operator and/or Additional Services Provider at the same price. Should this prove to be impossible, EACL will use its reasonable efforts to find an alternative Operator and/or Aircraft and/or Additional Services Provider and/or means of provision of the Additional Services at as close a price as possible and You shall be liable to pay the increased Price. If EACL is not able to substitute another Aircraft and/or means of provision of the Additional Services it shall not be under any liability to You and You shall remain liable to pay for that part of the Flight Schedule and/or any Additional Services Itinerary that has already been carried out.
