RULE 0060 RESERVATIONS

If a passenger does not use a reservation on a flight without first notifying the Carrier, the Carrier may cancel the reservations for intermediate or return flights. On the other hand, if the passenger gives the Carrier timely notice, the Carrier will not cancel the reservations for intermediate or return flights.

Likewise, if the Carrier requests confirmation and the passenger does not confirm, the Carrier may cancel the reservations for intermediate or return flights.

 

Nevertheless, if the passenger gives the Carrier timely notice that he/ she is still interested in utilising the intermediate or return flights, and subject to availability of seating on the aircraft, the Carrier will restore the reservation and provide carriage for the passenger. If seating is not available on the date chosen by the passenger, the Carrier will do everything possible to carry the passenger to the next destination or the final destination on the next flight on which seating is available.

 

5.6. Through its reservation operations and passenger check-in, the Carrier acquires personal data from passengers necessary to perform contractual obligations in respect of the same passengers. The performance of such obligations necessarily entails that such data are accessed by Carrier’s operative and commercial personnel, as well as by third-party service providers, the first as “Persons in Charge of the Processing” and the second as “Data Processors”.

 

The Carrier, as “Data Controller” for the subject data treatment, managed mostly through computers, informs its customers that such data will be used exclusively for the above-described purposes. For this reason, the passenger authorises the Carrier to store and use such data, and to transmit them to its competent offices, to its authorised agents, to government authorities, to other carriers, and to the service providers referred to above. Additional information on the identity of the Persons responsible and methods for the processing of personal data, as well as on the passenger’s rights regarding treatment of his/her personal data, are available c/o Carrier’s authorised agents, product distribution channels, and on the Carrier’s website.

 

RULE 0065 TICKETS

 

 

65.1.The Carrier will provide carriage, or refund the price thereof, only for the Passenger whose name appears on the ticket and legally holds the same. For reasons of security, the Carrier has the right to check if the person presenting the ticket is actually the person whose name appears on such ticket. In all cases, the ticket is and remains the property of the issuing Carrier. If the ticket is presented by a person other than the passenger having the right to be carried or refunded, the Carrier (subject to its right to withdraw the ticket) will neither perform carriage nor refund the person who presents the ticket.

 

65.2. If the ticket is not electronic, it will show only a summary of these G.C.C., the full text of which is available on Carrier’s website. The ticket is not a credit instrument and is not transferable by inter vivos act or for cause of death.

 

65.3. Unless the ticket is electronic, a passenger is not entitled to be carried unless he/she presents a valid ticket with the flight coupon for the flight in question, all other flight coupons unused, as well as the passenger coupon. In addition, the passenger is not entitled to be carried if the ticket presented is mutilated, if it has been forged, or if it has been altered by anyone other than agents authorised by the Carrier. If the ticket is electronic, the passenger has no right to carriage unless he/she provides data confirming that such ticket has been validly registered in his/her name. Considering its economic value, the passenger must take care of the ticket with due diligence and take appropriate measures to prevent its total or partial loss and its theft. In case of loss, theft, or total or partial destruction of the ticket, it will be reimbursed or replaced subject to the terms and conditions stated in Article XI.

 

65.4. Some tickets are sold at discounted or special fares and may be non-reimbursable in whole or in part. The Carrier will adequately inform the passenger about the reimbursability of such fares and about the applicable fare rules. In all cases, the passenger must use due diligence when choosing the most appropriate fare for his/her needs.

 

65.5. If the passenger holds a ticket entirely unused, that is non-reimbursable in whole or in part, and he/she is unable to travel due to a cause of force majeure, the Carrier will - provided the passenger immediately gives notice of such situation and subject to proof of such cause -grant the passenger a TCV for the amount of the non-reimbursable fare, to be used to purchase one or more tickets from the Carrier, net a reasonable service charge for issuing the ticket(s).

 

65.6. Unless otherwise stated on the ticket, in these G.C.C., and in applicable fare rules, which may change the term of validity of the ticket (in which case such changed term will be shown on the ticket), a ticket is valid for: (a) one year from the issue date; or (b) subject to the travel of the first leg within one year from the issuance date, one year from the date of the travel of the first leg specified on the ticket.

 

65.7. If the passenger is unable to begin travel within the term of validity of the ticket because at the time the passenger requested reservation the Carrier was unable to confirm such reservation, the term of validity of the ticket will be extended or the passenger will be entitled to a refund pursuant to the terms of Art. XI below.

 

65.8. If the passenger is unable to begin travel or, after having begun it, is unable to complete it within the term of validity of the ticket due to illness, the Carrier will extend the validity of the ticket to the day on which the passenger, based on a medical certificate of a public emergency center or hospital -which must be provided to the Carrier-is able to travel or to the first flight following such date, departing from the place from which travel should have begun or starts again and on which there is a seat available in the class for which the fare had been paid. Validity of the ticket will be extended for no more than three months from the date of the medical certificate if the ticket (whether paper or electronic) foresees one or more stopovers. In the above-described cases, the Carrier will also extend the period of validity of the tickets belonging to the ill passenger’s family unit members or companions who, in case, travel with him/her, or to other similar accompanying persons.

 

65.9. If the passenger dies during travel, the ticket of the person (if any) travelling with him/her may be changed by eliminating the minimum stay condition or by extending its term of validity. In case of death, at the agreed stopping place or destination of travel, of immediate family members, spouse or companion of the passenger who has already begun travel, the validity of the passenger’s ticket, as well as that of his/her immediate family members, spouse or companion who may be accompanying him/her, may likewise be changed. Changes will be made upon presentation of a suitable death certificate; the term of validity of the ticket may not be extended for more than 45 (forty-five) days after the date of death.

 

65.10. The ticket purchased by the passenger is valid only for the segment or segments specified on the ticket, from the place of departure to the place of destination, including any agreed stopping place. The fare paid by the passenger refers to carriage as specified on the ticket. The fare and applicable rule, as defined in Art. I, form an integral and essential part of the Contract. The passenger will not have any right to carriage if the flight coupons are not used in the order called for by the ticket, or if the passenger starts travel from one of the intermediate stopovers or from one of the agreed stopping places, unless the passenger gives the Carrier prior notice of his/her intention and receives approval therefor. It is forbidden to use flight coupons from different tickets for purposes of evading the Carrier’s fare rules.

 

65.11. The passenger must give the Carrier suitable advance notice if he/she wishes to change the itinerary or any other aspect of the Contract. If such change is possible and implies an increased fare, the passenger will be suitably notified of such increase so that he/she may choose to accept or reject it. If the passenger has to change an aspect of the contracted carriage due to causes of force majeure, he/she must give the Carrier suitable advaNce notice of the expected departure date. The Carrier will do its best to carry the passenger to the first agreed stopping place or to the final destination without changing the previously paid fare.

 

65.11.1 If the passenger intends to change the original carriage without Carrier’s consent, the passenger will be charged the fare for the changed carriage. The passenger will have to pay any difference between the fare paid and the fare applicable to the changed carriage, if higher. The Carrier will refund the passenger for the difference if the new applicable fare is lower. If the passenger does not pay the higher difference in fare, the unused flight coupons will not be honoured.

 

65.12. Some changes (such as choosing a new place of departure in case of non-use of the first flight coupon or reversing the direction of travel once begun) may imply a fare increase. Many fares are valid only on the dates and for the flights indicated on the ticket, and cannot be changed at all, or can be changed only upon payment of a surcharge.

 

65.13. Each flight coupon in the ticket will be accepted and collected by the Carrier for carriage in the service class on the date and for the flight on which the seat was reserved. If a ticket was originally issued without a reservation having been specified, the seat for such ticket may be reserved at a later date if permitted by the fare rule applicable to the passenger’s chosen ticket and if there is an available seat on the passenger’s chosen flight. If the passenger does not use the reserved seat and does not notify the Carrier sufficiently in advance, the Carrier may cancel, or ask another carrier to cancel, reservations for subsequent flights or for the return flight.

 

65.14. Subject to laws regarding mandatory indications in corporate acts and correspondence, Carrier’s name may appear in abbreviated form on the ticket and, specifically, may be reduced to the Carrier’s identification code. Unless otherwise specified, for purposes of carriage Carrier’s address will be considered the airport of departure indicated next to the first abbreviation of Carrier’s name in the box on the ticket marked “CARRIER” or, in case of electronic ticket, indicated for Carrier’s first flight segment on the Itinerary Receipt. The company’s registered office, the register of companies at which the company is registered, the registration number, and the total share capital are indicated in Carrier’s documents and correspondence.

 

RULE 0070 CHECK-IN AND BOARDING

 

70.1. The time limit for passenger check-in is different at each airport. Therefore, the passenger must find out about such time limits and respect them. Arriving early for check-in allows the Carrier and the passenger to go through formalities in the best manner. The Carrier or its authorised agents will provide the passenger information on the time limit for check-in for the first flight shown on the ticket. For any and all subsequent flights, the passenger must find out about the time limit for check-in.

 

70.2. Information on passenger check-in time limits is an integral part of the Contract, and are available from Carrier’s official timetable, through distribution channels for the Carrier’s products, on Carrier’s website, or by contacting the Carrier or one of its authorised agents. If no check-in time is indicated, the passenger must arrive at least 45 minutes prior to the published departure time.

 

70.3. The Carrier reserves the right to cancel a confirmed reservation if the passenger does not respect the time limit for check-in. This right applies to the first flight indicated on the ticket as well as for subsequent flights.

 

70.4. The passenger must arrive at the boarding gate no later than the time specified by the Carrier at check-in. 

 

70.5. The Carrier may cancel the reservation if the passenger does not arrive at the boarding gate by the prescribed time.

 

70.6. With regard to the rules applicable to the management of passengers stand-by lists, reference is made to the applicable laws and government regulations.

 

70.7. The Carrier is not liable for any cost or expense incurred by a passenger who has not respected the terms and conditions of this article.

 

RULE 0090 REFUNDS

90.1.Subject to the terms and conditions of T H I S  T A R I F F the Carrier will refund the ticket or any unused portion thereof, in conformity to applicable fare rules, as described below. The passenger has the right to refund of the amount paid for carriage, if the services to be provided by the Carrier pursuant to the Contract are not provided or are not requested in whole or in part, with the exception of any more restrictive conditions provided by the fare(s) chosen by the passenger.

 

90.2. The ticket holder or the person who paid for the ticket will have a right to refund. If the ticket was paid by someone other than the holder, the Carrier will effect refund only to such person or subject to his/her instructions, upon presentation of appropriate proof, and provided the ticket contains corresponding instructions. Refund effected by the Carrier in good faith and without negligence to a person who appears to be the holder and/or purchaser of the ticket, is deemed to be correctly effected with respect to the person entitled. Except in case of a lost ticket, the ticket holder/purchaser will have a right to refund only when the ticket and all unused flight coupons are returned to the Carrier. If the ticket is unused, any and all taxes collected by the Carrier together with the fare and indicated on the ticket will be reimbursed. Refund of such taxes is also applicable to non-refundable tickets purchased pursuant to specific promotional offers. In case of partial use (one segment only), the amount reimbursed will be proportionate to the taxes on the segment not flown.

 

90.3. If the passenger loses interest in travelling or does not request its performance, the Carrier will make voluntary refund of the amount paid only if the ticket was issued by the Carrier itself or by one of its authorised agents. In this case, the amount reimbursed, less any expenses reasonably incurred by the Carrier for such service, will be: - the entire sum paid if no part of carriage has been performed; or - equal to the difference between the sum paid and the sum relating to carriage performed, if carriage has been performed only in part. The above provisions apply subject to any more restrictive conditions provided by the chosen fares.

 

90.4. Subject to the terms and conditions in the preceding paragraphs, if a ticket is lost, stolen, or totally/partially destroyed, the Carrier will refund such ticket or replace it in whole or in part at the passenger’s request, provided: a) the ticket holder exhibits a Police Report attesting to such loss, theft, or destruction; b) the ticket holder provides proof, readily verifiable at the time of request, that the ticket had been validly issued; c) the passenger undertakes to return the refund or, in turn, to reimburse the Carrier for any cost or expense - up to the total price of the lost, stolen, or destroyed ticket - reasonably and necessarily incurred by the Carrier or by another carrier for any fraudulent use of the ticket, or for its refund to persons other than the person entitled who obtain it fraudulently. The Carrier will not require the passenger to pay costs that the Carrier incurs due to its own negligence. When re-issuing the ticket, the Carrier may require payment of a reasonable fee for such service, unless loss or destruction of the ticket is attributable to negligence of the Carrier or of its agents. The Carrier is liable to the passenger if it is proved that loss or destruction of the ticket was caused exclusively by negligence of the Carrier or of its employees. If the above-mentioned proof is not provided, or if the passenger refuses to undertake in writing to refund the Carrier as described above, the Carrier may require the passenger to pay an amount up to the full price of the replaced ticket when it issues the new ticket, such amount to be refunded when the Carrier verifies that the lost, stolen, or destroyed ticket has not been used prior to its expiration date. If the passenger regains possession of the ticket prior to its expiration date, such refund will be made when the ticket is returned to the Carrier. In all cases, a lost, stolen, or destroyed ticket will be refunded or replaced only after it has been verified that the ticket or part of it has not already been refunded or replaced.

 

90.5. A ticket issued by the Carrier or by one of its authorised agents may be refunded up to 30 (thirty) days after its expiration date, subject to any more restrictive conditions provided by the agreed fare. The Carrier reserves the right to refuse to refund a ticket if such refund may conflict with the immigration laws in force in the country in which the refund is requested. The Carrier reserves the right to make the refund with the same methods and currency used to pay for the ticket. Voluntary refunds will be made only by the carrier that originally issued the ticket or by one of its authorised agents.

RULE 0118 BAGGAGE

The passenger has the right to the carriage of baggage in free allowance within the limits and conditions established by the Carrier from time to time. Such limits and conditions are available on request c/o Carrier’s authorised agents, via its product distribution channels, and on Carrier’s website.

Pursuant to Transport Ministry Decree no. 1/36 of 28 January 1987 and ENAC (Ente Nazionale per l’Aviazione Civile- National Civil Aviation Board) Instruction APT-09 of8 May 2001, in addition to checked baggage within the free allowance, for purposes of airport security and flight security, each passenger is permitted free carriage in the cabin - compatible with the capacity of available compartments -of only one piece of hand baggage, identified with a label (with the passenger’s name and surname) to be attached by the passenger, provided that the sum of its dimensions (length, height and depth) does not exceed 115 centimetres (about 45,3 inches).

 In addition to the above-mentioned hand baggage, the passenger is permitted - compatible with available space -tocarry the following articles on board:

a handbag or briefcase or a portable personal computer;

a camera, a video camera, or a CD player;

an overcoat or a raincoat;

an umbrella or walking stick;

a pair of crutches or other walking aid;

a portable cradle and baby food needed for the flight;

reading matter;

Articles purchased at “Duty Free” shops and at shops located inside the airport (in limited quantities and weight), provided they are easily stowed in the available compartments on board.

Upon delivery to the Carrier of the baggage to be checked, the Carrier itself takes custody of such baggage and issues a baggage identification tag for each piece of checked baggage.

Checked baggage, within or in excess of the free baggage allowance, is carried on the same aircraft as the passenger unless not possible due to proven safety or operational reasons.

In such case, the Carrier will carry such baggage on the next available flight and will deliver it directly to the passenger.

 If checked baggage exceeds the free baggage allowance, the passenger shall pay a charge, the rate of which is available on request c/o Car- rier’s authorised agents, its product distribution channels, and on the Carrier’s website.

The Carrier offers the passenger the option of declaring a value for checked baggage in excess of the applicable limit of liability. In this case, the passenger will have to pay a supplementary charge.

The Carrier may refuse to accept the declaration of value for checked baggage if part of the carriage is performed by another carrier that does not offer a similar option.

The baggage or other objects that the passenger may take on board must be stowable under the seat in front of the passenger or in the compartments in the passenger cabin.

The Carrier reserves the right to prohibit carriage in the cabin of baggage or objects: whose weight, shape, and/or dimensions are such that they cannot be stowed as described above; conflict with the security requirements of carriage in the cabin.

Baggage and objects not allowed in the cabin will be stowed as checked baggage, with issuance of a baggage identification tag to the passenger, and after the passenger has been allowed to remove from the baggage any objects that cannot be contained in checked baggage.

Baggage and objects that are unsuitable for carriage in the hold (such as, for example, fragile musical instruments and similar objects) can be accepted for carriage only in the passenger cabin if space is available and according to the special procedures specified by the Carrier to guarantee the safety of passengers and the crew.

Carriage of such objects may be subject to special fares.

The Carrier undertakes to ensure that checked baggage will be made available to the passenger for claim as quickly as possible at the place of destination or agreed stopover.

In case the passenger fails to claim his/her baggage, the enforceable law provisions regarding the incapability of Carrier to deliver the carried goods will apply.
