The COVID-19 lockdown came down as a shock to many, especially those who had air travel plans or any other travelling schedules. No domestic or commercial passenger flight has been operating in the country since March 25.
Questions regarding cancellation charges, refund, rescheduling, cancelling flight ticket bookings popped up all over social media. In the view of the same, the Civil Aviation Ministry has instructed airlines to waive off rescheduling charges and the equally considerate airlines have agreed to abide by the same.
For your better understanding, we have listed below the names of the airlines and the concessions they are offering:
GoAir is providing free rescheduling for flight ticket bookings made March 12 and 14 and for the travel period between April 15 and June 30, 2020.
IndiGo has offered to waive off rescheduling charges on flight ticket bookings made between March 12 and March 31 for its domestic and international flights.
Air India, SpiceJet and AirAsia India:
No fee for rebooking will be made by any of the three carriers.
