Bolsonaro extends validity of special rules for reimbursement of airline tickets

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro issued a provisional measure on 12/31/2020 that extended until October 2021 the validity of special rules for the reimbursement of airline tickets for rescheduled flights. With that, according to the federal government, consumers will continue with the prerogative to cancel their trips due to unforeseen circumstances arising from the pandemic without paying a fine for it. “The full price of the ticket is refunded without a penalty if it is converted into a credit to be used to purchase another ticket in 18 months”, they said in a statement. “The measure allows for better programming by consumers and airlines in a period of insecurity, contributing to maintaining resources in the form of credits in the civil aviation system, relieving the cash flow of companies in a time of acute crisis”. – https://valor.globo.com/politica/noticia/2020/12/31/bolsonaro-prorroga-validade-de-regras-especiais-de-reembolso-de-passagens-areas.ghtml
