Air India Refunds

In case AI cancels a flight, fails to stop at ticketed destination, fails to operate on schedule reasonably, is not able to provide pre-allotted space or causes passenger to miss a connecting flight, the refund amount would be:

a) An amount equal to fare paid if ticket is totally unused; or

b) If ticket has been partly used, one way fare from the point of interruption or difference between paid fare and fare for transportation, whichever is higher.

If the refunds are sought for reasons other than the ones which are described above, refund to be paid for a partly used ticket would be the difference of the fare paid and the applicable fare on that leg of journey for which ticket has been used.

Precisely what amount would be refunded would be told only by the airline or agency where you booked tickets. This information will not be shared with us, since ticket has not been booked with us.

In general, Air India has a policy of deducting the applicable one way fare of the unused sector, tax applied on used sector and cancellation charges and the balance is refunded. Please refer here

I have booked tickets for my son and his friend from Chennai to Shanghai to travel on 3.12.2015.As their exams are postponed and they may not be able to travel, I may have to canel the tickets.What are the rules for refund in case of i.e.18.11.2015

Admin Reply :

You will have to tell us the PNR no and other details for us to get you this information, else you can speak to the airline representative. They do not have a declared policy and the cancellations and refund rules differ from one fare class of travel to another. So, your precise information can not be obtained without PNR no or flight details.
