What You Need to Know:

Just in time for holiday travel in November and December, airlines will be required to provide automatic refunds to passengers, if the passengers  declined an alternative transportation arrangement. 

In a statement from Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, “Passengers deserve to get their money back when an airline owes them – without headaches or haggling. Our new rule sets a new standard to require airlines to promptly provide cash refunds to their passengers.”
