Cancellations and Schedule Changes

From time to time, flights that you have booked will need to be changed or cancelled for reasons like weather, operational issues, air traffic restrictions or technical difficulties. If this happens you will receive a communication from us detailing your options.

If you booked through a third-party (travel or online agent, or another airline), we will notify the original sales agent of the change to your itinerary.
