  1. If the flight sectors on the new ticket are the same as on the lost ticket, Vietnam Airlines will refund the full amount paid for the new ticket.
  2. If the flight sectors on the new ticket are not similar to those on the lost ticket, Vietnam Airlines will refund the fare paid for the untravelled sectors on the lost ticket.
  3. If passenger does not purchase a new ticket, Vietnam Airlines will refund the fare paid for untravelled sectors of lost ticket on the condition that the lost ticket is refundable.
  • A lost ticket handling fee of 10% of the refund amount is payable for Vietnamese-fare passengers on domestic flights or a fixed fee of US$25.00 for other types of tickets.
  • All refund transaction fees (if any) will be borne by passengers.
  • Passenger will not be refunded or must pay for all losses incurred by Vietnam Airlines if the latter discovers that the declared lost ticket has been used by that passenger for travel, refund or reroute.
