Caribbean carrier Air Jamaica helps passengers with itinerary changes in the event of a US-led war on Iraq. The Air Jamaica Guaranteed Travel Program gives more flexibility for passengers to change their travel plans because of the conflict with Iraq.
It applies to tickets bought for travel through September 30, 2003, and allows ticketed passengers to reschedule their trip to begin their journey at any time within a year of the original date of travel.
Additionally, they will be guaranteed the original ticketed fare within the applicable fare parameters. The program also allows passengers who have already started their journey to return early on their ticketed itinerary without penalty.
Passengers must request their deferred travel before the original departure date, and the relaxation will not apply to “no shows” or passengers who do not check-in for flights. In such cases, normal ticketing and refund policies under the applicable fare rules apply.
“We trust that these measures will reassure people to go ahead with their travel plans,” said Air Jamaica`s Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Allen Chastanet. He hoped that Air Jamaica Guaranteed Travel Program should help eliminate some of the uncertainty associated with travel as war threatens in the Middle East.
Air Jamaica holds the Five Star Diamond Award, a distinction that ranks it among the top airlines of the world. It has also been named “Best Airline to the Caribbean” for five consecutive years at the annual World Travel Awards.
