IndiGo and AirAsia start refunding money to passengers for cancelled flights

Aviation Industry’s leading airlines Indigo and AirAsia have started to refund money to passengers who don’t want credit shells for the tickets which airlines had to cancel due to some reasons. According to Airlines source, though the airlines have started the money refund process to passengers, they have not yet commented on money refund on credit shells issued earlier to them. The information regarding procedure or time-taken to redeem credit shells to passengers whose flights were cancelled due to lockdown guidelines has not been clarified yet.

Speaking on Airlines decision to refund money, CEO of, Nishat Pitti said, “All passengers booked on AirAsia and IndiGo who want a refund instead of credit shell would be refunded and we have started refunding money to customers in their bank account, as these airlines have also started refunding us. According to me, it will boost the trust factor among customers to book future tickets which are generally lower priced”.

With leading airlines Indigo and AirAsia starting the refunding process, other airlines may follow the same thing soon. A Senior Airline Executive said that Airlines have started refunding but it will take some time to refund every agent. The passenger who bought through the agent will have to apply to an agent for the refund. The refunding process will depend on the date the passengers booked the Air tickets and circumstances they booked as all the airlines have issued a lot of credit shells and till those credit shells are redeemed, the process will take time to expedite.
