NEW DELHI:  The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has amended its Civil Aviation Requirement that may assist passengers with higher refunds if they’re involuntarily downgraded or their flights cancelled.

“This will be sure that amenities are offered to passengers by airways resulting from denied boarding, cancellation of flights and delays in flights. This will strengthen the rights of air travellers who’re impacted on the final minute by being involuntarily downgraded and carried in a category decrease than what was resulting from them based mostly on the ticket that they bought,’’ stated the DGCA.

Following this modification, the airways could be  liable to reimburse 75 per cent of the price of the ticket (inclusive of taxes) if the passenger is flying on the home sector. Meanwhile, for these passengers flying on the worldwide sector, 30 per cent of the price of ticket (inclusive of taxes) could be mandated for flights that cowl a distance of 1,500 km or much less.
