Don’t let your airline’s financial troubles ruin your vacation
Wednesday, Flyglobespan, Scotland’s largest airline, went into administration and ceased operating.
An estimated 5,000 passengers are left without a flight they paid for.
With all the financial trouble airlines are having these days, it is important that airline passengers understand how to protect themselves if an
airline fails. There are several ways to protect the value of your airline ticket. But some protection is limited and sometimes costs extra money.
Here are three that are worth looking into.
Book through Sky-Tours.com or an IATA appointed Travel Agent. If you book direct with the failed airline your money is gone.
If booked via an IATA appointed Passenger Agent your money is save and you can expect a refund should the airline cease operation.
