Refund

Customers traveling according to paragraphs 1, 2, 3 and 4:

 

Subject to fare regulation according to processes and conditions established for each country.

Other considerations:

 

  • Ticket validity: For fully unused tickets up to 12 months from the commencement of the original trip and for partially used tickets subject to the maximum stay allowed by the fare. However, for tickets with original trip commencement date between March 01, 2020 and December 31, 2020, tickets may be changed until December 31, 2021, according to system availability.


  • Flexibilities include customers who decide not to travel or are affected by border restrictions/emergency situations for traveling to certain countries. Check details on entry restrictions by country published by Passenger Services. This information is posted as reference only. Customers must be advised to check current restrictions with the relevant embassy/consulate.

 

  • Customers at destination (trip already commenced) who, due to the operation reduction, are not eligible for protection to comply with the maximum stay allowed by the fare, may reschedule their flight up to 12 months from trip commencement (according to the conditions mentioned), even if the change exceeds the maximum stay allowed by the fare.

 

  • Consider that all date changes that imply a change in the “type of passenger” (e.g. INF to CHD) will also imply the charging of applicable fare differences.

 

  • The change Without penalty, subject to cabin availability in the same cabin (without fare differences) and ticket validity must be made as an involuntary reissue. 

 

 

  • Cancellations for No-Show on flights departing from Europe are prohibited. If a customer advises up to 24 hours after flight departure, the ticket may be changed subject to cabin availability (without fare difference fees, provided the origin/destination are maintained). If the customer advises later than 24 hours, travel will be permitted without penalty but subject to fare differences.
