2. How And When These Conditions Apply

2.1         General

These Conditions apply whenever you travel on our scheduled air travel service and the “FC” Airline Designator Code is shown in the “Carrier” box of your Ticket, and in any case where we have a legal liability to you in relation to your flight.

These Conditions will not apply to Charter Flights as per Subparagraph 2.7 below, even if the “FC” Airline Designator Code is shown in the “Carrier” box of your Ticket. Our Terms and Conditions for the Supply of Aircraft Charter Services can be accessed by contacting our Call Centre or the charterer responsible for coordinating your flight.

If you are in doubt as to whether these Conditions apply to your flight, please contact our Call Centre.

2.2         Basis Of Carriage

Your travel with us is subject to the following documents, enactments and instruments: (a) these Conditions; (b) conditions and notices or key conditions of carriage set out in Your Ticket, (c) any applicable Conventions; (d) any applicable Laws; (e) the Policies; and (f) any written or oral directions given to You by our Staff and/or Authorised Agents.

2.3         Overriding Law

These Conditions of Carriage do not apply to the extent that they are inconsistent with laws that apply to your carriage.

In respect of any goods or services we may provide other than carriage, certain statutory guarantees or warranties may apply for the benefit of consumers. For example, for consumers, services may come with a non-excludable guarantee or warranty that they will be provided with due care and skill. The nature and application of these guarantees or warranties will depend on the relevant jurisdiction. Nothing in these Conditions of Carriage is intended to exclude or restrict the application of such consumer laws.

In respect of goods or services acquired for business purposes and not as a consumer:

(a) consumer guarantees and warranties, including under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth), or a Fair Trading Act will not apply where these Conditions of Carriage apply, provided that the relevant terms may by law be excluded; and

(b) if a statute or other law provides a guarantee or warranty that cannot be excluded, to the extent permitted by law our liability for a breach of the guarantee or warranty will be limited to either supplying the goods.

2.4         Interaction With Laws, Tariffs, Conventions

These Conditions will: (a) apply to the extent permitted by any applicable Laws, and if any provision of these Conditions are void, illegal, invalid or unenforceable, these Conditions will be read down to the extent necessary to ensure they are not void, illegal, invalid or unenforceable; and (b) prevail unless inconsistent with any applicable Laws, Conventions or Tariffs, in which case the Laws, Conventions or Tariffs will apply to the extent of the inconsistency.

2.5         Variation And Waiver

None of our Staff, Authorised Agent or other person is authorised to vary these Conditions. However, our Staff and/or Authorised Agents may in certain circumstances waive Fare Rules or amounts payable. A waiver on one occasion does not constitute a waiver on any other occasion.

2.6         Other Transportation Or Services

These Conditions do not apply to any non-air transportation or other services we arrange for you (for example, bus transfers and hotel accommodation). We arrange these services (if applicable) for you as your agent and your contract is with the provider of the transportation or services. If you require further information about the terms of the contract, please contact us.

2.7         Charter Operations

These Conditions do not apply to charter operations performed by us under a charter agreement (hire arrangement) unless you are advised otherwise in writing by or on behalf of the charterer prior to boarding the aircraft.

3. Getting Ready To Fly

3.1         Passports, Visas And Authorisations

It is your responsibility to comply with all laws, regulations and orders of your chosen destination. For more information, please ask an Authorised Agent or consult with the government which issued your passport. Any assistance which we provide you in this area does not release you from your obligations.

3.2         Your Health

The health and safety of all of Passengers is paramount. That’s why it is important for you to be aware of health and safety issues which are relevant to you and to tell us about any health issues which affect your safety or the health and safety of others. If you are in any doubt, you should consult your doctor and talk to an Authorised Agent and/or our Call Centre.

(a) Risks inherent to being seated for extended periods of time. By its very nature, medium to long-haul air travel involves extended periods of sitting. This may be a risk factor for some people forming blood clots in limbs, known as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). You should discuss with your doctor whether you are at risk of suffering DVT and, if so, what preventative measures you should take.

(b) Medical Clearance. If you have a medical condition that falls within our Medical Clearance Guidelines (this includes but is not limited to food allergies), we may require you to provide a Medical Information Form signed by a qualified medical practitioner. If you do not provide a Medical Information Form which is satisfactory to us, we may refuse to carry you on our flights. The Medical Clearance Guidelines can be accessed by contacting our Call Centre or via our Website.

(c) Pregnancy. If you are pregnant, the following precautions must be observed:

  • For travel after the first 28 weeks of Your pregnancy: You need to carry a certificate or letter from a registered medical practitioner or registered midwife confirming the estimated date of delivery, whether it is a single or multiple pregnancy; and that there are no complications with your pregnancy.
  • For flights of four hours or more: if you are having no complications with your pregnancy you can travel up to the end of the 36th week of your pregnancy for single pregnancies or up to the end of the 32nd week for multiple pregnancies (for example, twins). Medical clearance is required if you are having complications with your pregnancy.
  • For flights of less than four hours: if you are having no complications with your pregnancy you can travel up to the end of the 40th week of your pregnancy for single pregnancies and up to the end of the 36th week for multiple pregnancies (for example, twins). Medical clearance is required if you are having complications with your pregnancy.
  • If You wish to travel within seven days after delivery: medical clearance is required. Infants cannot travel for 48 hours after delivery and need medical clearance to travel between three and seven days after delivery.
  • We do not represent that travel is safe for you at any particular point during your pregnancy. You must seek advice from your own medical practitioner prior to your flight. The periods referred to above are only our minimum requirements.

3.3         Personal And Baggage Insurance Recommended

Personal and baggage insurance is recommended.

Fly Corporate does not offer travel insurance but may provide a link to a travel insurance provider via our Website. Further information with respect to travel insurance can be obtained by you, from your travel agent or your preferred insurance company.

3.4         Codeshare Services

We have arrangements with other Carriers known as Codeshare services. This means that you may have made a reservation with us and you may travel on another Carrier’s aircraft and vice versa.

If such arrangements apply to your flight, we will advise you of the Carrier operating the aircraft at the time you make a Reservation. The conditions of carriage of the Carrier whose flight number appears on your Ticket will apply to your flight.

Codeshare services are operated by different carriers and different types of aircraft. Accordingly, services and facilities offered by us or Codeshare carriers’ may not be available on all Codeshare Services. In addition, different or additional rules may apply to Baggage on Codeshare Services. You should refer to the operating carriers’ website, our Website or our Call Centre for further information.

3.5         Interline Services / Other Carriers

At times you may also travel on services which we sell but which are operated by other carriers under those carriers’ flight numbers and Airline Designator Codes. If we issue with an Itinerary or a Ticket for carriage on another carrier’s flight and Airline Designator Code, we do so only as agent for that carrier, and that carrier’s conditions of carriage will apply. The operator’s conditions of carriage may significantly limit or exclude liability. You should refer to the operating carrier’s website for further information.

4. Reservations and Seat Allocation

4.1         What Is A Reservation?

A Reservation is a booking on our flight, and is confirmed only when recorded and paid for and accepted by us. An open-dated ticket is not a reservation.

4.2         How To Make A Reservation

You can make a Reservation with Fly Corporate by booking with us, an Authorised Agent or online at www.flycorporate.com.au

4.3         What Happens Next?

Once you have a Reservation, you will also have to pay the Fare for the Reservation either at the time of booking and in some cases within the Ticketing Time Limit. Make sure you clearly understand the Ticketing Time Limit when we or the Authorised Agent advise you of it. If you do not pay for your Reservation within the Ticketing Time Limit we may cancel your Reservation. If you pay for your Reservation at the time of booking or within the Ticketing Time Limit you will be issued with a Ticket by us or the Authorised Agent.

4.4         If You Don’t Use A Reservation

Depending on the Fare Rules which apply to your Reservation, if you do not use the Reservation, you may forfeit your Fare.

4.5         Seat allocation

Some of our Fare classes and cabin classes may allow you to request a preferred seat and/or cabin area. You may also have requested to be placed in a certain seat and/or cabin area during the booking process, through an Authorised Agent or through our Call Centre. We will endeavour to accommodate your seat request. However, we do not guarantee you any particular seat, even if you have nominated a seating preference. We may change your seat at any time, even after you have boarded the aircraft. This may be necessary for safety or operational reasons.

4.6         Collection Of Personal Information

When you make a Reservation with us, we must collect certain personal information in order to process your Reservation and to comply with our legal obligations. For these purposes, you authorise us to retain your personal information and to disclose your personal information to other Carriers, travel service providers, organisations which provide services to us, such as collecting commissions, credit and other payment card companies, various law enforcement agencies and governments around the world for security, customs, emergency and immigration purposes.
