The ticket of returning passengers will be endorsed “Return Account Death (name)” and such endorsement shall be authenticated by validation or other official stamp. Refund may be arranged.
  • In case the passenger and/or family members travelling with the passenger are holding restricted fare tickets the terms and conditions of such restricted fare may be waived. This applies only to passengers that have already purchased tickets and have intent to travel. Passengers wishing to attend a religious ceremony who have not yet purchased a ticket must purchase the tickets and comply with any restrictions applicable to the new fare.
  • A death certificate must be presented to Kairali either at the place and time of reticketing, or in the country where death occurred. In the latter case details shall be transmitted to the reticketing office before reticketing.

Should a death certificate not be available at the time of rerouting, a new ticket shall be issued at the normal OW applicable to the journey to be undertaken. Upon the later presentation of the certificate, refund may be arranged.
Death in the immediate family: A group fare passenger or an individual passenger travelling at a fare with re-routing/change of reservation restrictions may return to the place of origin shown in this ticket, without stopovers en route, at the same fare on the next available flight, or if death occurred at the point at which travel is interrupted immediately after completion of formalities and religious customs, if any, but in no event later than forty-five (45) days after the travel is interrupted. The ticket will be endorsed “Return Account Death (name)” and such endorsement shall be authenticated by validation or other official stamp. Refund may be arranged. 
Group Travel:
 In the event a passenger(s) is discontinuing travel with the group in accordance with the above, this shall not affect the entitlement to travel at the group fare of the remaining passengers in the group.
Waiver due to illness: No waiver.
Refund in case of waiver due to death will be the ½ RT fare irrespective of the fare conditions and balance amount will be refunded.
Death Certificate not available: Where a death certificate is not available and a passenger is holding a restricted fare for which changes would not be allowed under normal circumstances, if the carrier is unable to verify that the conditions of the fare can be waived then a one way ticket may be sold. When the death certificate becomes available, the one way ticket purchase may be refunded retroactively upon submission of the original coupon(s). The passenger must send Kairali all required details and ticket jacket of the new ticket to be attached.
