What Is It?

A while ago we spoke about flyers getting a compensation in case of delayed or cancelled flights, but there’s good news! Now Indian flyers will be getting a full refund if the flight is cancelled or they cancel within 4 days of departure. 

For Cancellation

Unless the passenger is cancelling the ticket 4 days before the estimated departure, there will be a full refund. But if it exceeds that, passengers who request to cancel or reschedule the flight will have to pay the basic surcharge or cancellation fees. 

If the flight is cancelled by the airline, the passenger will be given an option to switch or reschedule the flight up to 2 hours of the estimated departure. If the switching option isn’t provided, a full refund will be provided to the passenger.
