In case of itinerary changes (requiring more flight time or more waiting time) the changes are subject to availability and additional charges to be made and paid for, before the continuation of the flight. In case the customer is unable to commit to the current schedule and the aircraft is scheduled for another flight, the aircraft shall depart empty, and no refunds shall be made.

In case the customer does not accept a down grade he shall receive a full refund from ATO.
Partner/ Broker / Agency / Hotel is responsible to provide the customer with ATO’s terms and conditions. Any cancellation or other problem resulting from inability or negligence of the Partner to provide the customer with all terms and conditions is the responsibility of the Partner and he shall therefore bare all expenses according to the terms and conditions described herein. Partners/ Brokers / Agency /Hotel follow the policies imposed by the Operator and act exclusively as reselling entities, therefore there isn’t any liability on the product or service they resell. (Liability Waiver must signed between Client and Partner/ Broker / Agency / Hotel in a separate document)
All customers are required to be at the point of departure at least 20 minutes prior to the Estimated Time of Departure (ETD). In case of a passenger delay and when the aircraft’s schedule is affected ATO will provide an alternate ETD based on that schedule making all efforts to service the customer. If the flight cannot be performed at the same day an alternate date will be provided. In case the customer cannot fly at the revised ETD or at a different date this situation is treated as a cancellation and 80% of the total amount will be charged. In case ATO delays the flight for technical or other reasons the customer will either be upgraded or downgraded (when applicable) with the terms that apply. If the customer denies the alternate solution a full refund will be made. In case the customer accepts the delay and/or the schedule change, no refunds are made apart from those effective in the case of a downgrade. Once a flight has departed and the customer wishes to either cancel the flight or return back no refunds will be made.
