How can I refund my ticket?

If your flight is affected by cancellations or travel ban, you are eligible for a refund without penalties. If your flight is not affected by cancellations or travel ban, we’re also offering you the option to refund your ticket subject to fare rules. The refund may be subject to applicable penalties depending on the schedule, status, and issuance date of your ticket.

We are experiencing some delays in processing due to the unusually high volume of refund requests we have been receiving.
