Flight Interruptions

If Your Flight is Interrupted

Wasaya Airways will keep passengers regularly informed if there is a flight interruption.

Wasaya Airways will provide our passengers information, including the nature of the interruption, as soon as possible through the following methods:

  • An audible announcement
  • Website flight information display
  • Flight information display screens in airports where available
  • Persons with disabilities may choose their preferred method of communication within the existing options provided by Wasaya Airways

Wasaya Airways will provide status updates of flights every 30 minutes until a new departure time has been set.

Minimum Levels of Compensation

Airlines are required to pay passengers compensation for flight delays or cancellations which are in their control and not related to safety.

Wasaya will provide passengers with information on the applicable standards of treatment and compensation. Wasaya will also advise passengers of their recourse options, including the ability to make a complaint to the Canadian Transportation Agency.

A passenger will have one year to make a compensation claim with Wasaya for a disrupted flight. Wasaya Airways has 30 days to respond by issuing a payment or indicating why it is believed that compensation is not owed.

Compensation may be offered in monetary form or in the form of a voucher. The passengers will always have the right to select what method of compensation they prefer. As well, alternative forms of compensation offered will be of higher value than the monetary compensation that is required and these vouchers will never expire.


Rebooking and Refund

For all types of flight delays or cancellations, Wasaya will ensure that passengers complete their itinerary (that is, reach their final destination). Once a delay reaches 3 hours, Wasaya will also offer to rebook the passenger on the next available flight.

If a flight delay or cancellation is within Wasaya Airways control, or within our control and required for safety purposes, Wasaya will rebook passengers in the same class of service.

Wasaya Airways will provide the passenger with a confirmed reservation that

(I) is for a flight to that point of origin, and

(ii) accommodates the passenger’s travel needs

(b) in any other case, refund the unused portion of the ticket.

Refund - If the alternate travel arrangements offered do not accommodate the passenger’s travel needs (e.g., there is no longer any purpose to the travel), Wasaya Airways will refund of their ticket,  as well, passengers are entitled to compensation for inconvenience in the amount of $125 cash (Canadian dollars) or $200 credit voucher.
