HOW AND IN WHICH CASES TO INFORM ALITALIA OF FAILURE TO BOARD A FLIGHT
For the tickets bought in Italy, if the outward flight (or a segment of it) is not used for any reason, the request to hold the validity of the ticket for the return flight only, can be accepted only if previously communicated to Alitalia’s Contact Center at +39 0665640 in the terms below:
- within the 24 hours following the departure of the unused flight;
- if the departure time of the return flight falls within the 24 hours from the first flight, Contact Center must be called at least 2 hours before the departure time of the return flight.
The Contact Center will issue a new electronic Ticket for the modified itinerary and the check-in shall be performed on the Alitalia’s website (if available) or at the airport.
In case the above terms and conditions are not strictly met, Alitalia, subject to seats availability on the return flight, reserves the right to ask for the payment of the difference between the original ticket purchased and the highest fare in the same class/compartment applicable to the modified itinerary at the time of ticket reissuance. In case the fare rules of the original ticket are more favourable for the passenger, these will be applied.
