Voluntary Refund and Change Rules of CA International Tickets

( Version2022)

 

I. Scope of Applicability

1.The rules shall be effective from 01, September, 2021.

2.The rules apply to CA international tickets including tickets issued before 01, September, 2021.

3. For the refund and change policy of special fare products, the corresponding rules in such products shall apply.

4.These rules shall be regarded as an integral part of “ Air China General Conditions of Carriage for Passenger and Baggage” .

II. General Rules

1. The change fee and the refund fee are calculated according to the date you submit the request of change or refund, not the date you cancel the reservation in advance.

2.The rules shall prevail for situations in compliance with that described in this rule.“ Air China Limited General Conditions of Carriage for Passenger and Baggage ” shall apply to situations not specified in this rule.

III. Voluntary Refund

1. If fare rules permit voluntary refund, the refunded amount consists of two parts. One part is the residual fare and fuel surcharge. The other part is the residual taxes collected by related governments and authorities. The two parts are calculated separately for refund.

1.1 Residual fare and fuel surcharge = Total fare and fuel surcharge amount paid - repriced fare and fuel surcharge of the flown sectors - non refundable fare and fuel surcharge - refund fee

1.2 Residual tax = government taxes of unused sectors(excluding non-refundable taxes regulated by governments and authorities)

•  The refund rule of fuel surcharge is as same as fare. The amount paid on the refundable fare component will be refunded and fuel surcharge is refundable. The amount paid on the non-refundable fare component will not be refunded and fuel surcharge is also non-refundable.

3.If the residual fare amount plus fuel surcharge is zero or negative, you are not required to pay the difference and we still return you the unused government taxes (excluding non-refundable taxes regulated by governments and authorities).

4.We only collect the highest refund fee when there are several unused sectors combining with different refund fees.

5.The change fee is not refundable if your ticket has been changed voluntarily before you request the refund.

6.The infant ticket without seats is free of the refund fee. Child discount apply to the refund fee of the applicable child fare.

7.For partially used tickets, we shall recalculate the used fare, fuel surcharge and government tax. Due to the speciality and complexity of international fare calculation, fare, fuel surcharge and government tax are quite different in various itineraries even though the booking class code and the sectors are the same. The used fares, fuel surcharges and government taxes are subject to the final amount calculated by us.

Kind Reminder: Take the round trip ticket as an example. If your outbound trip is used, the repriced total amount of used fare, fuel surcharges and taxes may be higher than the half of the total amount you paid including round trip fare, fuel surcharges and taxes.

IV. Voluntary Change

1.If you do not commence the travel, we shall recalculate the total amount you paid for the whole journey according to the change date. Once you commence the travel, we shall recalculate the total amount of the whole journey according to the original ticket issued date. The original ticket refers to the first ticket you paid.

•  All fares,fuel surcharges and government taxes will be repriced when you change the ticket including you request to make a reservation for a sector without a booking(an OPEN sector).

2.1 If the repriced total amount is higher than the amount you paid originally, you are required to pay the difference plus the change fee if applicable.

2.2 If the repriced total amount is lower than the amount you paid originally:

2.2.1 If the change is made within the same cabin service, you may request a voluntary refund and purchase a new ticket. Or you maychoose to continue your trip keeping the original fare and we will only charge the change fee if applicable.

2.2.2 If you downgrade your cabin service voluntarily (e.g. First class to Business class, Premium Economy class or Economy class; Premium Economy class to Economy class etc.), you may request a voluntary refund and purchase a new ticket.

3.The change fee applies to each change transaction. We only collect the highest change fee when there are several changed sectors combining with different change fees.

4.The infant ticket without seats is free of the change fee. Child discount apply to the change fee of the applicable child fare.
