Turkish Airlines FREE rebooks due to COVID19. Most airlines, reacting to the fear linked to coronavirus COVID-19, are starting to offer some flexibility to:
- Buy tickets in March 2020 with no fees for rebooking
- Re-book tickets bought before March 2020
Turkish Airlines is one of them. I actually found the details of what they are offering since I have an upcoming trip with them from Stockholm to Malta, coming back to London Heathrow on their first A350 flight!
Unfortunately, with how the whole COVID-19 situation is developing, it is getting harder to travel, and I might consider postponing the trip.
Turkish Airlines Free Rebooks: Full Terms
Since each airline imposes its own conditions, here I copy and paste the terms:
For tickets* to be purchased between March 6 and March 24 (*excluding tickets for domestic flights within Turkey and to/from Ercan Airport), we remove the change fee. If you’d like to change your ticketed flight, your first change request will be applied free of charge.
Moreover, For tickets* purchased before March 5, 2020, for flights taking place up to December 31, 2020 (*excluding tickets for domestic flights within Turkey and to/from Ercan Airport) your first change request will be applied free of charge, provided that the change is completed by March 16, 2020.
For tickets purchased on and before 5th of March 2020, valid only if the change request is done before 16th of March 2020Valid for tickets to be reserved and purchased between March 6 and March 24, 2020.Valid on flights operated by Turkish Airlines until the end of 2020.Passengers can make a change request up to 5 days prior to their flight.Domestic flights in Turkey and to/from Ercan Airport are not included.Fare differences that may be incurred due to the change request will be collected from our passengers.Change requests can be made through the Turkish Airlines Sales Offices and agencies from which the ticket was purchased.
One thing to keep in mind if you already hold a ticket with Turkish Airlines (bought before March), is that they allow one free rebooking only if you do it before March 16th!
Keep an eye on the date and try to do it within that timeframe to make sure no fees apply!
