Air France Cancellation Policy – Air France Airlines


Who does not wish to see the Effiel Tower in Paris? It was even my dream destination. I was so excited when I was finally planning my trip to Paris with my husband as it is known as the city of romance. We made our reservation at the earliest to avoid any last-minute disappointments and price hike. We even made a list of the best places to visit in Paris apart from the Eiffel Tower. As we all know that lie is very unpredictable and comes with both surprises and shocks.

Our life also got shattered in a moment when my mother-in-law got a heart attack and left us forever. Obviously, at that moment the trip did not strike us because our life was going through a roller coaster of emotions. After seven days of mourning and sorrowful ambiance, the thought of the trip popped into our heads. We surely wanted to cancel it because we were not in the same state of mind as earlier. I wanted to keep my husband away from more stress so I made the initiative of canceling the reservations.
I was unaware of the Air France Cancellation Policy so I went to the official website of the airline to know the procedure along with the terms and conditions.

The Air France Cancellation Policy page provided the following information:

  • As per Air France Cancellation Policy, the passengers who cancel their reservations made on the Air France official website within the first 24 hours of the purchase will not be eligible for any cancellation charges.
