Q. What are the different fare types I can choose?
A. Eastern Airways offers a range of fare types to suit your travel needs. If your travel plans could change, our Flexible fares allow you to change your booking without any change or upgrade fees. Flexible fares can be purchased on a one-way or round trip basis. The standard search will automatically search for the lowest applicable fares for your chosen dates. The fares will be displayed in a matrix form for all flights on the given date. Fares are branded, the brands have a different level of flexibility, and you can mouse over the brand name to display the basic fare rule. This way you can choose the fare that best suits your travel requirements. Please note all Eastern Airways fares are non-refundable. If you wish to cancel a fully-flexible ticket and are unsure when you will use it, we can put the booking on hold for up to six months.
Q. How do I get the best online fares?
A. Our online booking facility offers both normal fares and web-only fares. These vary according to route and fare type. In order to have a better chance of finding the lowest fares we suggest:
• Avoid booking Peak time flights [e.g. Monday mornings and Friday evenings]
• Book Early [fares are sold subject to availability and therefore the earlier you can book the better chance you will have]
• Be Flexible with your dates [if you are booking a return flight it may be that the lower fares are only sold out in one of the directions]
