10. APPENDIX 1 SPECIAL CONDITIONS AND INFORMATION FOR FLIGHTS

Flights

Contracts for flights booked on our site will be concluded with the relevant Travel Supplier and subject to its terms and conditions.

Note that additional conditions apply to air fares. For example, tickets are generally non-exchangeable and non-refundable. You can review the pricing rules when viewing the Travel Supplier's Terms and Conditions during the booking process. In addition, most airlines reserve the right to change schedules and cancel confirmed bookings. SLM SA, as an intermediary, is not responsible for these schedule changes or cancellations.

Airlines may charge for additional services such as checked baggage, airport check-in, seat preferences, inflight entertainment (if applicable), meals, drinks and snacks, etc. The amount of these additional services is not included in the price of your ticket, unless the contrary is expressly stated, and must be paid directly to the airline. SLM SA is not responsible for any additional charges incurred and recommends that you contact the relevant airline to add services and verify charges. You can check baggage allowance by visiting the airline's website or, for some airlines, by clicking here. Note that if your flight has multiple routes, the baggage allowance may be different. This can also be the case if you are taking an international flight and a domestic flight from the same airline. In this case, you will be charged for any baggage exceeding the lowest baggage allowance on the flight with the lowest baggage allowance.

The recommended check-in time is 120 minutes before departure for international flights and 90 minutes for domestic flights. Some airlines require you to reconfirm your return booking at least 72 hours before the flight. Failure to reconfirm your flight reservation directly with the airline will result in cancellation.

Flights must be used in the order defined in your itinerary; for example, if you do not use the outbound flight or the first leg of a trip, it may void the remainder of the ticket.

We strongly recommend (especially if you are traveling in economy class) to check in early if you have specific seat requests. SLM SA has no control over the allocation of seats, even if they are pre-booked with the airline, and cannot guarantee that specific seats will be available upon departure. SLM SA is not responsible for transfer costs between airports or terminals that you may incur.

The flights at special rates or at the best price may not be the most direct. Some routes require a change of aircraft. A flight described as direct is a flight for which there is no change of aircraft during the trip. However, there may be stops for refueling or embarkation / disembarkation of passengers. The details of the stopovers will be given to you during the reservation process and are clearly mentioned on the Site and on your itinerary, which will be sent to you when you make your reservation. It is your responsibility to obtain the necessary visas and we assume no responsibility to assist or advise you in this regard.

Times are shown in 24-hour system clock format, are approximate and are based on outbound flights. They may vary according to flight schedules, type of aircraft, weather conditions, etc., and are indications of flight time (with the exception of time on the ground during stopovers or during a change of plane) and are therefore given for information only and are subject to modifications and confirmations.

Regulations vary by airline, but some refuse to carry women in their 28 or more weeks of pregnancy on the date of return travel. If in doubt, check with the airline concerned and consult your doctor. Infants must be at least 6 weeks old to travel by plane and must travel on an adult's lap or in a child seat. Contact the airline you are traveling on for details of the appropriate seats. Generally, children 2 years of age or older should occupy a seat.

Combination of one-way trips

In some cases, to give you great round trip fares, we combine two outbound fares on different airlines, or on the same one. You will therefore have two separate reservations (one for your outbound flight and the other for your return flight). Each reservation will be subject to its own pricing conditions. You can decide to cancel one of the flights and keep the other without incurring additional costs. If you do not take the outbound flight, the return flight will not be canceled by the other airline. Any cancellation or modification (in particular of schedules) of one of the flights, will not affect the other flight nor the tariff rules of the latter. For example, if you cancel one of the flights, the other airline is not obligated to reimburse you for the part of the trip it operates, nor to offer you an alternative route. You may be subject to change fees for the alternate flight, if applicable.
