Aviation Ministry proposes to remove cancellation fee on flight tickets
In a comforting piece of news for air passengers, the government on Tuesday proposed abolishing cancellation charges for domestic flight tickets if the cancellation is made within 24 hours of booking.
“No cancellation charges will be levied if the tickets are canceled within 24 hours of booking, provided the ticket is booked 96 hours before flight departure,” said Jayant Sinha, Mister of State for Aviation.
In the draft on passenger charters released today, the
government has also said that the cancellation fee can, in no condition, be more than the base fare.
The charter proposes that passengers would be compensated Rs 20,000 on missing connecting flights if the delay is over 12 hours, and Rs 10,000 if the delay is between 4-12 hours.
