Come August, come good news! Fliers will now get more refund on cancellation of their tickets.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has notified the related changes which will come into effect from Monday.
Now, if you cancel your air tickets, the airlines cannot deduct more than the base fare and fuel surcharge. The airlines will be bound to return the taxes collected from the passengers while booking the tickets and they cannot charge the processing fee for the cancellation of tickets.
The airlines will have to return fees on all type of bookings and also the travellers will get more compensation if they are declined to board. In case of checked-in baggage, the airlines would be charging Rs 100 per kilogram for baggage weight in excess of 15 kg till 20 kg.
