Due to its perishable nature, it will be carried at the passenger`s own risk and will not be accepted on Airlink regional flights. Each regional country that Airlink operates to has strict import and export regulations, so perishable items of any nature will only be acceptable as manifested cargo.
Due to the vast volume of refund requests coming through, the processing time may take up to four months from date of submission. Every effort will be made to process refunds as quickly as possible.

Passengers who fail to present themselves for a flight without advising the Airline in advance, no later than one (1) hour prior to the scheduled departure time will be a "no-show" and the Ticket flight coupon will be forfeited.
The same will apply if the Passenger does not present themselves for a flight, be it at the check-in counter for the check-in procedure or the boarding gate for the boarding procedure prior to departure. It is the Passenger’s responsibility to familiarize themselves with the terms and conditions of the fare and the Airline does not accept any responsibility for the Passenger’s failure to do so.
