What If The Airline (Air peace) Cancel The Flight?
Anytime a flight is cancelled or delayed longer than necessary, you are entitled to a full refund by Air Peace. Many travellers don’t know this. If you are rescheduled to a later flight that is not convenient for you, ask for a full refund. Write to Air peace if your flight is delayed longer than it should and you are moved to another time that would make you miss your appointment, ask for a refund immediately.
There are instances where an Airline can cancel a flight for example, terrorism threats, bad weather condition, aircraft damage etc.
Consider A flight Change Instead of A refund
Yes, a flight change may be better than a refund. If you’re a frequent traveller, I would advise you go for a flight change instead of a refund. A flight change is not expensive as you may think. some may require a fee and the fare difference fee between the two flights. Sometime, you can do a change free of change. For instance if the flight you want to rebook to is less expensive than the one you booked before, you will get a voucher. You can use the voucher whenever you want to book another flight.
