The airline provides four fare types available to choose from: Seat Only, Seat and Bag, Economy and Premium. The onboard experience will be similar, as facilities onboard the aircraft are limited. Passengers will be required to remain seated during the short flights, which offer incredible views of the scenery below. Both of these fare classes offer the flexibility to reschedule or cancel, however there are differences in the terms and conditions.

Seat Only & Seat and Bag (Seat +)

This is the most affordable option for those whose schedule is unlikely to change. It allows passengers to reschedule their booking prior to the day of departure, but a fee will be charged.

Economy Fare

The Economy fare allows passengers to reschedule their booking prior to the day of departure. A smaller fee will be charged.

Premium Fare

The Premium fare gives passengers the flexibility to reschedule their booking up until 2 hours prior to scheduled departure, and for free.
