Baggage Information

Your Comprehensive Baggage Allowances Guide

Jordanian and foreign governments charge additional taxes and fees for international travel. International fares do not include government-imposed taxes/fees. Taxes and fees are subject to change at the discretion of each country’s government and may be adjusted for inflation and/or currency fluctuation. You may be required to pay taxes or fees not already collected.

  • Before carriage, you will pay to us the total amount of all applicable taxes, fees and charges imposed on us by a government or other authority, or by the operator of an airport, which we are obliged to collect from you or to pay in respect of your carriage.
  • When you purchase your Ticket, we will advise you of all taxes, fees and charges not included in the fare, most of which normally will be shown separately on the Ticket. Taxes, fees and charges imposed on air travel are outside our control and are constantly changing and can be imposed or changed after the date your Ticket has been purchased. If a tax, fee or charge is imposed or increased after your Ticket has been purchased, you must pay to us any such tax, fee or charge, or any such increase before carriage.
  • If your Ticket has been purchased from our Authorized Agent and such Authorized Agent omitted to give details of all applicable taxes, fees and charges, with the result no, or insufficient, payment has been made for such taxes, fees and charges, you must pay the relevant amount at the airport of departure before you will be entitled to carriage.
  • If any tax, fee or charge is abolished or reduced and becomes no longer applicable to all or part of your carriage, a refund can be claimed in respect of any such tax, fee or charge which has been paid. Please ask us or our Authorized Agent for details of how to claim such refund.
  • If you do not use your Ticket, you will be entitled to claim a refund of any taxes, fees or charges you have paid, less any applicable administration fee(s) if your Ticket is subject to restrictions. Please ask us or our Authorized Agent for details of how to claim such refund.
  • Surcharges in exceptional circumstances
    • In exceptional circumstances, charges may be imposed on us by third parties, which are of a type or amount not normally applicable to our operations (for example, insurance premium supplements or additional security costs triggered by unlawful interference with civil aviation). In addition, we may be subjected to significant increases in operational costs (for example, fuel charges) caused by exceptional circumstances beyond our control. In such cases, you will be required to pay to us, as fare surcharges, all such charges attributed by us to your carriage (even if such exceptional circumstances surcharges are imposed after the issuance date of your Ticket). We will contact you with details of any applicable fare surcharges as soon as possible. If we are unable to establish contact using your contact details, we will advise you of any applicable fare surcharge at check-in. You are free to choose not to pay a fare surcharge and receive an involuntary refund of your Ticket in accordance with the provisions of Article 10.2, in which case we will have no other liability to you.
    • If any exceptional circumstances surcharge ceases to apply to all or part of your carriage, or a lesser amount is due, a refund can be claimed in respect of any such surcharge which has been paid. Please ask us or our Authorised Agent for details of how to claim such refund.
  • Currency
    • Fares, taxes, fees, charges and exceptional circumstances surcharges are payable in the currency of the country in which the carriage commences, converted to the currency of the country of payment (if different) at the applicable Banker"s Selling Rate in effect on the date payment is made, unless we or our Authorised Agent require payment in a different currency (for example, because of the non-convertibility of the local currency). We may at our discretion, accept payment in any currency, subject to applicable local law.
    • When you pay through credit card, Your credit card issuer bank may charge You for currency conversion. We do not receive any amounts of such charges and therefore You acknowledge that We shall not be responsible for any such charges. You will be fully responsible for the payment of any amounts which may occur as a result of currency conversion or discrepancy.
