Emirates Cancellation Policy


If due to some reason the passengers have to cancel their flight, Emirates has a policy for it. Emirates Cancellation Policy is extremely reliable through which you can easily cancel your flights. The cancellation policy is flexible and transparent but there are certain rules and restrictions given by the Emirates regarding the cancellation policy.

Emirates Cancellation Policy 24 hours


Emirates Cancellation Policy 24 hours allows the passengers to cancel their flights within 24 hours of booking it to get a refund. A condition is that the departure date must be beyond seven days from the date of purchase. No fee is charged if the flight is canceled within 24 hours but after this time frame, the cancellation fee is charged. In case the ticket is refundable, the passenger can apply for the full amount refund. Also, Emirates flight cancellation charges apply to each ticket and not on each booking. So, if a group is traveling together and there is a cancellation each member of the group has to pay the cancellation fees. If you book a flight online, you can cancel it online as well and it is very convenient and easy but you still have the option of canceling it over the phone by calling the Emirates customer care. The refund is processed automatically if you cancel a flight online. If you cancel your flight after a period of 24 hours, a cancellation fee will be levied which will be deducted from your ticket fare and the remaining amount will be processed in the original form of payment within 7-10 business days. If you cancel your flight within 24 hours of the booking but the flight is within 7 days you have to pay 200 USD which is the cancellation fees and the remaining amount will be processed as a refund. In case your ticket is nonrefundable the entire cost will be converted into points that can be redeemed at the time of booking the next flight with Emirates within a period of one year.

Emirates Flight Cancellation Charges


Emirates cancellation fee is charged on the basis of the type of ticket, destination, seat class, time of cancellation, and fare rules. The fee that the passenger pays for canceling a flight can be deducted from the refund. In case of a refundable ticket, $200 USD is charged which is either refunded in the original mode of payment or a travel voucher is issued for future travel with Emirates. The fee is only charged if your flight is within 7 days of booking it. In case of a nonrefundable ticket too, a $200 USD fee is charged and a travel voucher is automatically issued which remains valid for a period of one year. If the cancellation is voluntary in which the passengers wish to cancel the flight a certain amount of fees is charged. In case of an involuntary cancellation where the airlines itself cancel the flight due to severe weather or a corporate reason or any other, there is a relaxation on the Emirates cancellation charges. If your flight has been delayed by the airlines, you do not have to fill a form for compensation. All you have to do is call on the Emirates Cancellation phone number and ask if your flight qualifies for compensation or not and the amount which you will be receiving as compensation. If your flight gets canceled due to bad weather, you can ask for a complete refund in the original form of payment or get a credit voucher against the ticket fare. If the flight distance is less than 2000km, the compensation is $300 USD and the flight distance between 2000-4000km and the flight has been delayed for more than 3 hours the compensation is $400 USD. If the flight distance is more than 4000km the compensation will be $600 USD and if the flight is delayed for more than 6 hours, you become eligible for a complete refund. In case of a death or a medical emergency even if your ticket is nonrefundable you can get a refund but you will have to submit certain documents. Also, you can get a refund for an unused ticket but only a small amount.
