Cancellation/Rescheduling charges by airline
IndiGo has waived off fees for rescheduling the tickets. For any new reservation that customers make on or before 31 March 2020, they can reschedule their journey multiple times, without paying any change fee. However, the fare difference if any will be applicable, and the changes have to be made at least 3 days prior to the travel date.
“Booking date: On or before 8th March, 2020
Travel date: On or before 31st March, 2020
You can reschedule your journey multiple times for travel before March 31, 2020 without paying any change fee.
You can reschedule your journey only once for travel beyond March 31, 2020 without paying any change fee,” says the IndiGo website.
Here is what Air India has tweeted on domestic flight cancellation and rescheduling charges:
“In view of Coronavirus situation and travel advisory issued, One Free Change permitted for pax to postpone any international or domestic bookings on AI Network on all existing bookings with travel date till 30th April ’20, & on new bookings till 31st March ’20.

The Wadia owned airlines had initially offered free cancellation; however, the same is no longer applicable. The airlines now offers free rescheduling till April 30 for all travel in March and all new bookings till September 30. For travels in March rescheduling can be done 3 days prior to the travel date, and for travels beyond March rescheduling can be done 14 days prior to the date of travel. Consumers will have to pay any fare difference if applicable.
Air Asia is extending free rescheduling on all domestic network flights for travel till 31 March 2020. Rescheduling can be done t any date and the waiver applies only to the first rescheduling that is done 3 days prior to the date of travel.
SpiceJet too is not charging any rescheduling fees for any travel between 12 and 31 March 2020. However, any fare difference will be applicable. more
