Reschedule or Change flight Ticket Online
You have already booked your flight and purchased your ticket, but still have some business in town to take care of. Well, we can’t be in two places at a time, so you have to either cut your business short to meet your flight or reschedule your flight to a more convenient time. Business cannot wait most of the time that is why airlines allow for flight rescheduling. But a number of airline have made rescheduling flights easier offering it as part of the services on their online flight booking platforms, making it easier for travelers to reschedule their flights online.
Of course, you can call your travel agent or airline to reschedule your flight, but rescheduling online is more convenient. Flight rescheduling enables you change the date of your flight. Of the five Nigerian airlines we currently track; namely Aero airlines, Dana air, FirstNation airways, Arik air, and Air Nigeria, three seem to have features to allow customers reschedule flights online. The other two may also have the facility, but have not made it clear.
It is a good idea to reschedule flights several hours before boarding time. For online flight rescheduling, doing so 4 hours to 24 hours is not a bad idea. Note that flight rescheduling is not allowed for promotional tickets. It is also important to note that you may pay a penalty when you reschedule a flight.
