UIA reminds that a passenger may use one of the three methods of compensation for an unused ticket in case of changes in the airline's schedule, transfer or cancellation of a flight due to epidemiological reasons:
- change the flight date using the Manage My Booking service on the UIA website;
- get a promo code to save the cost of an unused ticket + an additional bonus of 25% of the cost of an unused ticket;
- make a request to refund a ticket.
In addition, UIA passengers can independently manage their flight parameters using the Manage My Booking (MMB) online service. Passengers can change the flight destination, date, additional services, etc through the mobile application or the UIA website. It is important to remember that amending flight details is possible for tickets issued on UIA forms (ticket number starts with 566) no later than 14 hours before the departure time of the first unused flight indicated on the ticket.
