How it works
Simply select “Airline Liquidation Protection” on the flight review page when making your booking.
The Airline Liquidation Protection is valid for customers who have purchased tickets with an airline that has cancelled their flights due to liquidation (according to South African legislation or equivalent processes with other government jurisdictions).

If the airline you are flying with is liquidated after your journey has begun you will be reimbursed for the cost of the flight home (or for a new ticket equivalent to the original for that part of the journey).
Flying South Africa will have no liability to pay any benefit in relation to any insured event for which the insured person may be able to seek compensation from an airline. If the insured person proves that he has taken all reasonable and necessary steps for claims from the airline, Flying South Africa will pay a pro-rata portion of the benefits. Flying South Africa’s liability will be calculated by reducing the benefits by the amount for which Flying South Africa considers the airline to be liable.
