HOW AND IN WHICH CASES TO INFORM ALITALIA OF FAILURE TO BOARD A FLIGHT

- Within 24 hours of the departure time of the unused outward flight
- If the departure time of the return flight is within 24 hours of the outward flight, the Contact Center must be contacted at least two hours before the departure of this return flight.
The Contact Center will issue a new electronic ticket, for which you must check in on the website (if available) or at the airport.
If passengers do not inform Alitalia as above, or do so after the deadlines indicated, when there are seats available on the flight, Alitalia reserves the right to request payment of an amount equal to the difference between the price paid for the previously bought ticket and the higher price applicable to the amended itinerary at the time the ticket is reissued.

A request to maintain the validity of the ticket for subsequent flights can be accepted for the following reasons:
- Illness that prevents flying, substantiated by an appropriate medical certificate from a hospital or equivalent in-patient or out-patient facility
- Death of a first-degree relative, spouse or partner, substantiated by a death certificate
- Fulfillment of obligations imposed by legal authorities or the police after the ticket was purchased, substantiated by a copy of the decisions made by these authorities
The occurrence of any of the above situations beyond your control must be communicated to Alitalia at least 2 hours before the departure of the flight you cannot use, by contacting the Customer Center on +39 06 65640 and pressing button 2, option 4.
