Frequently asked questions about the travel voucher

The answers below apply to travel vouchers that were issued due to the Covid-19 health crisis.

What is a travel voucher and what is its validity period?

  • A travel voucher is a credit that can be used to purchase a ticket or extra options from the Air France and KLM websites or ticket offices, for a flight with Air France, KLM, Delta Air Lines, or Virgin Atlantic.
  • Vouchers issued between March 2020 and August 2021 are valid until August 2022. 
  • Vouchers issued after September 1, 2021, are valid for one year after their date of emission.

For bookings completed through a travel agency If you booked your flight through a travel agency, please contact them directly, as we will be unable to process your voucher online. Your travel agency will have all the necessary information to help you fulfill your request. Our customer service remains at your disposal should you run into any difficulties.

When and how will I receive my travel voucher?

We will send your voucher to the e-mail address you provided in your booking or online refund form. Voucher requests usually take 7 days to process but may take up to several weeks due to the large volume of requests we are currently receiving. If there are several tickets or paid options in your booking file, your vouchers may be sent separately.

How do I use my travel voucher?

  • Visit the www.airfrance.com website.
  • Log in to your account to view your voucher(s).
  • At the time of payment, select or enter your voucher number (starting with 057) in the “Discount code, voucher or gift card” field and click on “Apply”. Your voucher value will be automatically deducted from the total amount due.

Can I use the same voucher multiple transactions?

You can use the same travel voucher for multiple transactions only if the price of your new ticket or flight option is lower than the value of your voucher. The residual balance will then be converted into a new travel voucher with the same conditions as the original one (refundable or non-refundable).

What happens if there is a difference between the price of my new ticket and the value of my voucher?

  • If the price of your new ticket or paid option is lower than the value of your voucher, the residual balance will be converted into a new travel voucher, which will retain the same conditions as the original voucher (refundable, non-refundable).
  • If the price of your new ticket is higher than the value of your travel voucher, you will have to pay the price difference through one of the payment options on our website.

Is my travel voucher refundable?

Travel vouchers are not refundable for tickets purchased after March 1, 2022, and those purchased before February 28, 2022, with a travel date beyond July 1, 2022. All refund requests will be processed according to your ticket conditions.
