The federal government recently announced new rules that are coming to help Canadians with cancelled and delayed flights.
Airlines will be required to provide passengers with either a refund or rebooking, at the passenger’s choice, when there is a flight cancellation, or a lengthy delay, due to a situation outside the airline’s control that prevents it from ensuring that passengers complete their itinerary within a reasonable time.
