An e-ticket is an electronic ticket that contains all the information shown on a paper ticket (or itinerary) but is stored as an electronic record in the airline's computer system. When the e-ticket has been issued, the passenger needs to print out their ticket/itinerary with the booking reference shown. At the departure airport, the passenger goes straight to the airline check-in desk. How do I know that my booking is confirmed? Your booking can only be confirmed once your payment has been processed. We will send you a 'booking confirmation' e-mail. This contains: - Your booking reference number. - Your flight details. - Your e-ticket. - Your invoice. Please be informed that we reserve the right to cancel the booking and refund the amount paid, and we reserve the right to adjust prices and taxes before the ticket has been issued if this is considered necessary. Can I cancel or change my booking through Safa? Safa currently does not accept online cancellation or amendment requests. However, you can contact Safa customer support team 24/7 to assist you with that. Please remember to check the cancellation policy before making any changes to your reservation. Non-refundable services and other special deals may have different cancellation policies. Cancellation information can be found under booking details. Apart from the cancellation charges levied by the airline, Safa charges a cancellation/amendment fee of KW 2.5 per ticket. What is the difference between a direct flight, a nonstop flight and a flight with a connection? Many people think non-stop and direct flights are interchangeable terms, but there are differences between the two. A nonstop flight does as its name suggests: flies from one airport to another without stopping. A direct flight, on the other hand, makes a ‘technical’ stop along the way at a mid-point airport. Passengers are not allowed to disembark from the flight during these stops, which normally lasts for 45min to 1 hour. An itinerary with connecting flights requires passengers to change planes at a mid-point airport, which may be in a different terminal or on a different airline. Do I have enough connection time between my flights? The Minimum Connecting Time (MCT) is the standard amount of time needed to make a connecting flight at a particular airport. This standard is determined by the air traffic controller and varies according to the airport and the airline. The connection times we offer on our website are set according to these standards. In the event that you miss your connecting flight due to an earlier flight delay, it is the airline’s responsibility to re-route you onto the next available flight. Should there not be other flights available that day, the airline should offer you accommodation. This is only valid if your journey and all transits were booked on one ticket. Can I book a flight with an outbound departure from another country than the one I am presently situated in? Yes, you can book tickets between any two cities across the globe. Are my credit card details safe? Safa uses a secure connection for your booking: Your payment is processed directly through our bank partner site which uses state-of-the-art secure server technology. We do not store your credit card information in our database and we will never ask for your credit card secure information through phone or e-mail. Your personal data details are encrypted and secure. Can I make reservation for more than 9 passengers in the same booking? It is not possible to book for more than 9 people at the same time. BUT you can make two separate reservations on the website. Please bear in mind that we cannot guarantee that there will still be seats available when you make the second reservation as you might have grabbed the last seats with your first booking. If you need any further assistance please call our customer support team. Should I check-in online? Online check-in allows you to save time at the airport by checking in via the airline's website. Please note that online check-in is not supported by all airlines. Name Correction What do I do if my name is misspelled on the booking? Most airlines allow for minor corrections to misspelt names (e.g. Mohammed/Mohamad, Ali/Aly), but do not allow name changes to the travelers originally booked. If there is a spelling mistake, we can ask the airline for a name correction. The final approval comes from the airline. Kindly make sure you always enter the correct name as mentioned on your passport in order to avoid any inconvenience. How do I transfer my booking? Airlines do not allow you to transfer your airline tickets to another traveler, you must cancel your original reservation and book a brand new ticket following the airlines rules and regulations. Do I need to give my middle name? It is not a requirement to add middle names when making a booking with us; most airlines will keep note of your middle names in their system but it will not appear on your ticket. For example, Mr Ahmed Ali Jabbar will appear as Jabbar/AhmedMr on your ticket. Changes Can I change the airline after booking? Unfortunately, we cannot change your booking to another airline due to airline restrictions. However, you can cancel and rebook with your preferred airline. Normal airline cancellation penalties of the original ticket will be applicable. If you are booking a flight with a low-cost airline (e.g. flynas, Fly Dubai, Air Arabia etc), changes can only be done by contacting Safa customer support team 24/7. However, if you are flying a full-service airline (such as Emirates Airlines or Saudi Airlines), the ability to change or cancel your airline ticket is dependent on the type of ticket you purchased. Rebooked flights must be for the same traveler and on the same airline as the original booking. Apart from the amendment charges levied by the airline, Safa charges a cancellation fee of KW 2.5 per Ticket. Additional charges on rebooked flights shall be calculated as below: Difference in airfare (if the cost of your new flight exceeds your booking amount). The total cost of your change will depend on your airfare, your ticket details, and any applicable penalties or fees. Ticket change cost example. What do I do if I miss my flight? Unfortunately, if you missed your flight there is no refund and you will have to book a new flight. Some airlines, however, may permit you to pay the difference and be on standby for the next available flight (with an applicable penalty fee). We suggest you contact us as soon as you see a possibility of a delay on your way to the airport to assist you with changes to your booking (a missed flight penalty fee may be applicable). How do I cancel my booking? Unfortunately, most bookings are non-refundable with low-cost airlines (such as flynas, Flydubai etc). Cancellation can only be done by contacting us directly. Usually, the airlines may provide a non-refundable, non-transferable credit shell for future use. Fortunately, for most full-service airlines (such as Emirates Airlines or Saudi Airlines) you can cancel flight bookings with us according to the fare rules booked. Please be aware that some fares are non-refundable. Review your itinerary for fare rules, restrictions, and ticket cancellation fees prior to booking. Airlines may permit cancellation 24 hours prior to departure. Usually, airlines may charge an additional 'no show' penalty if the booking is cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled departure time. Apart from the cancellation charges levied by the airline, Safa charges a cancellation fee of KW 2.5 per ticket. Schedule changes What do I do if my flight is rescheduled?

Airlines may also make changes due to adverse weather, mechanical or crew issues. We will notify you by email if your reservation is impacted by a planned airline schedule change. However, sometimes we do not receive advance notice, so we always encourage you to check your flight status 24 hours before departure. The airline will always offer a replacement flight in case of a schedule change, but alternative flights are at the discretion of the airline and vary based on the rules associated with the fare of your ticket purchased. We will always work with the airline to find you an alternative flight as close to your original schedule as possible or a refund as per your convenience. What do I do if my flight is canceled by the airline? If your flight was canceled by the aviation police out of your control, and the dates available to choose from the list of alternative flights with the same destination do not suit you and you do not want to book another appointment, we will contact the airline to request a refund of the flight costs. Which is subject to the approval of the competent authority. Refund & Payments How will I receive my refund? All refunds are made back to the same channel used during booking. For example, if you used your credit card, we will make an appropriate charge reversal. If you used your debit card, we will credit the money back to the debit card. Please remember that the cancellation charges along with Safa fees, cashback, discounts availed shall be deducted from the refund amount. The refund process will take 2 working days and the amount will reflect in your account within 15-20 working days depending on the issuing bank.
