Even if your fare is non-refundable, if you do not travel you may be able to claim a refund of certain charges or taxes excluding fuel and insurance surcharges. If there is a charge or tax which Jetstar collects on a per passenger basis to remit to an airport or taxing authority, and we do not have to remit that amount as a result of you not travelling, we will refund that amount to you, after deducting a reasonable administration fee (see www.jetstar.com/vn/en/planning-and-booking/fares/fare-information for current fees).

These Conditions of Carriage (including any exclusion or limitation of liability) apply to and are for the benefit of our authorized agents, employees and representatives and agents to the same extent as they apply to us.
The total amount that you can recover from us, our authorized agents, employees, representatives and agents will not be more than the total amount of our liability, if any. Except where these Conditions of Carriage provide otherwise, our liability, if any, is limited to compensation for the proven Damage. We will not in any circumstances be liable for indirect or consequential damages and in no event will our obligations exceed any liability specified in these Conditions of Carriage.
Nothing in these Conditions of Carriage:
- except where we say otherwise, gives up any exclusion or limitation of liability to which we are entitled under any laws which may apply, or

If Checked Baggage is not claimed within three (3) months of the time it was made available to you, we may dispose of it without any liability to you. If a person claiming the baggage is unable to produce a Baggage Identification Tag for identification of the baggage, we will deliver the Baggage to such person only on the condition that he or she has established to our satisfaction his or her right thereto, and if required by us, such person shall furnish adequate security to indemnify us for any loss, damage or expense which may be incurred by us as a result of such delivery. Acceptance of Baggage by the bearer of the Baggage Identification Tag without complaint at the time of delivery is prima facie evidence that the Baggage has been delivered in good condition and in accordance with the contract of carriage between us.
11.4 No Flight Connections Provided
Jetstar Pacific Airlines is a low cost “point–to–point” airline which does not provide flight connections for Baggage. It is the Passenger’s responsibility when making a Booking to allow time for Baggage collection and re-check. We recommend at least one hundred and twenty (120) minutes between international flights.
While Jetstar Pacific Airlines will try to carry you and your Baggage in accordance with the date and time of the flights specified, it does not guarantee it will be able to do so. Schedules may change without notice for a range of reasons including, but not limited to, bad weather, air traffic control delays, strikes, technical disruptions and late arrival of aircraft. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Jetstar Pacific Airlines excludes liability for any costs, expenses, losses or damages incurred by a Passenger as a result of failure to meet a schedule including, without limitation, any missed connecting flights or other travel arrangements.
11.5 Where Warsaw Convention Is Not Applicable
Where your carriage is not subject to the liability rules of the Warsaw Convention, the following rules shall apply:
(a) Any liability we have for Damage will be reduced by any fault on your part which causes or contributes to the Damage in accordance with applicable law.
(b) We will not be liable for Damage to Checked or Unchecked Baggage unless such Damage is caused by our fault and such Baggage was within our control or custody.
(c) We will not be liable for any Damage arising from our compliance with applicable laws or government rules and regulations or from your failure to comply with the same.
(d) Except in the case of an act or omission done with intent to cause Damage or recklessly and with knowledge that Damage would probably result, our liability in the case of Damage to Checked Baggage shall be limited, provided that if in accordance with applicable law different limits of liability are applicable such different limits shall apply. If the weight of the Baggage is not recorded on the Baggage Identification Tag, it is presumed that the total weight of the Checked Baggage does not exceed the applicable free baggage allowance for the class of carriage concerned. If in the case of Checked Baggage, a higher value is declared in writing pursuant to an excess valuation facility, our liability shall be limited to such higher declared value.
(e) We shall have no liability whatsoever for Damage to articles or items not permitted to be contained in Checked and Unchecked Baggage including, but not limited to, fragile or perishable items, items having special value, such as money, jewelry, precious metals, computers, personal electronic devices, negotiable papers, securities, or other valuables, business documents, passports and other identification documents, title deeds or samples.
(f) We are not responsible for any illness, or disability, including death, attributable to your physical condition or for the aggravation of such condition.
(g) The contract of carriage including these Conditions and exclusions or limits of liability, applies to our authorized agents, servants, employees and representatives to the same extent as they apply to us. The total amount recoverable from us and from such authorized agents, servants, employees and representatives shall not exceed the amount of our own liability, if any.
(h) Nothing in these Conditions shall waive any exclusion or limitation of our liability under the Warsaw Convention or any other applicable Convention or applicable laws unless otherwise expressly stated by us.
