What shall I be aware of when travelling during COVID-19?
We recommend that you check the COVID-19 requirements for the destination you're travelling to, we're unable to advise on this information as it is changing on a regular basis. The best way to check the COVID-19 requirements and travel restrictions is by contacting your local embassies or by checking the government websites of all the countries that you're travelling to in your flight itinerary.
We also advise passengers to leave plenty of time at the airport as there will be measures to ensure passengers safety. Queues are expected as social distancing rules apply. Passengers may also be required to wear face masks at the airport and in the cabin. Please be aware that passengers may need to check-in at the airport using self-check-in kiosks provided. However, you can also check-in online to minimise physical contact while travelling.
What shall I do if my flight is still operating but I don’t want to travel because of coronavirus?
Unfortunately, we have to follow the airline policies provided and cannot do anything outside of this. Please be assured that all airlines will follow local advice and will not put anyone at risk, so do keep checking the airline's website as policies are being updated on a regular basis. We also recommend you check the rules of the ticket you have purchased to see whether you have a flight that is amendable. You'll find this information on your e-ticket that we provided to you after purchasing your flight.
What if my airline doesn’t have a policy?
If you're travelling to an area that is currently advised not to travel to, please contact us and we will call the airline on your behalf. If your chosen destination is still allowing people to travel as normal, unfortunately, you'll have to follow the rules of your purchased ticket. If you're unsure of the rules of your purchased ticket, you can find them on the e-ticket that we sent to you after you purchased your flight.
Will Alternative Airlines waiver their own cancellation policy if I cancel my flight or my flight is cancelled due to Coronavirus?
If your flight is cancelled or your airline allows you to cancel for a refund, we will waive the cancellation fee that we ordinarily charge for cancelling flights and send you the refund amount that we receive from the airline. However, our agent fees are non-refundable.
I don’t feel unwell and still want to travel, is that ok?
If you're travelling to a destination that is deemed safe as per the local government and your flight is operating then, yes, you should travel as normal.
I feel unwell. Should I still travel?
If you're feeling unwell and have symptoms that relate to or put you at risk with coronavirus, you should try to get a test as soon as you can and follow your local government stay-at-home advice on what you should do if you develop coronavirus symptoms.
