2.3 Conditions prevail over regulations

Unless specifically stated otherwise herein, these Conditions of Carriage shall prevail over any other regulations of Air Adelphi governing the same subject.

Article 3 – Tickets

3.1 Ticket as condition of carriage

The ticket constitutes a contract for carriage between Air Adelphi and the passenger named on the ticket. We will provide carriage only to the passenger holding such ticket or holding, as proof of payment or part payment, any other document issued by us or our authorised agent.

The ticket is not transferable. If a ticket is presented by someone other than the person entitled to be carried thereunder or to a refund in connection therewith, Air Adelphi shall not be liable to the person so entitled if in good faith Air Adelphi provides carriage or makes a refund to the person presenting the ticket.

3.2 Period of validity

Unless otherwise stated on the ticket or in these Conditions of Carriage, a ticket is valid for travel for one (1) year from the date you first travelled using the ticket, as long as your first flight took place within one year of the ticket being issued. If the ticket is completely unused, it is valid for one year from the date of issue.

If you are prevented from travelling within the period of validity of the ticket because we:

  1. cancel the flight on which you hold a reservation; or

  3. cause you to miss a connection booked with us; or
  4. substitute a different class of services; or

In the event of death in the immediate family of a passenger who has commenced travel, the validity of this passenger’s tickets and those of his or her immediate family who are accompanying the passenger may likewise be modified. Any such modification shall be made upon receipt of a valid death certificate and any such extension of validity shall not be for a period longer than forty-five (45) days from the date of death.

3.3 Coupon sequence and use

The ticket you have purchased is valid only for the transportation as shown on the ticket, from the place of departure through any agreed stopping places to the final destination. The fare you have paid is based on our tariff for the transportation shown on your ticket. Please note that if you do not fly a segment of your itinerary preceding your flight or you do not travel in the sequence provided in the ticket, the fare charged for that flight will be the fare for your actual transportation that would have been payable at the time of the original booking. If this fare is higher than the fare for the route indicated on your ticket, further
carriage may be made subject to the payment of the difference between the fare you have already paid and the revised fare. A change in the place of departure or destination, the time of departure or other circumstances must be agreed with us.

Please note that if you do not show up for a flight and you do not notify us in advance, we may cancel any reservations you have for your return or onward flights. If you do notify us in advance, we will not cancel any subsequent flight reservations. However, you may incur costs as set forth in Article 3.3.1.

Each flight coupon will be accepted for carriage in the class of service, on the date and on the flight specified therein. When flight coupons are issued without a seat reservation, we will make the seat reservation subject to the applicable fare conditions and seat availability on the relevant flight.

3.4 Name and address

Our name may be abbreviated to our airline designator code, or otherwise in the ticket. Our address shall be deemed to be the airport of departure shown opposite the first abbreviation of our name in the “carrier” box in the ticket, or, in the case of an electronic ticket, the airport of departure indicated for the first flight segment in the itinerary that is operated by us.

Article 4 - fares, taxes, fees, charges

4.1 General

Unless expressly stated otherwise, fares cover carriage from the airport at the place of departure to the airport at the place of your final destination. fares do not include ground transportation between airports or between airports and city centres.

Changes to your itinerary or the dates of travel may affect your fare.

Applicable taxes, fees and charges levied by governments, other authorities or by the operator of an airport, shall be payable by you. When you purchase your ticket, you will be advised of any taxes, charges and fees not included in the fare, which will normally be shown separately on the ticket at the time you purchase your ticket. Taxes, fees and charges imposed on air travel change constantly and can be levied on your booking after the date the ticket has been issued. If any of these taxes, fees and charges change after you have purchased your ticket, you will be obliged to bear the additional cost. If any taxes, fees or charges are abolished, reduced or no longer levied on your booking, you will be entitled to claim a refund.

4.3 Currency

Taxes and charges are payable in the currency of the country in which the ticket is issued.

Article 5 - Reservations

5.1 Reservation requirements

Reservations are not confirmed until recorded as accepted by Air Adelphi or our authorised agent.

If you purchase a ticket without a seat reservation, you may reserve your seat later if a seat is still available on the requested flight.

Air Adelphi may limit or exclude your right to change or cancel reservations in accordance with our cancellation and change policy:

  3. you fail to cancel your booking by the time stipulated by the carrier.

Article 6 - Check-in

Our unchecked baggage allowance is one item per passenger (up to 6 kilos), which should be able to fit under the seat in front of you on the aircraft.

8.2 Excess baggage

The carriage of baggage that exceeds the baggage allowances set out in Article 8.1 and the carriage of special baggage will incur a charge. These baggage charges are available upon request.

8.3 Items unacceptable as baggage

You may not include in your baggage:

  1. Items likely to put the aircraft or people or property on the board of the aircraft in danger. This includes the items listed in the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air. This includes, in particular, explosives, compressed gases, oxidising, radioactive, corrosive or magnetising substances, highly flammable, toxic or aggressive substances and also all kinds of liquids (except for liquids carried in the hand luggage for use during the trip).
  2. Items whose carriage is prohibited by the applicable laws and regulations of the country of departure, destination or transit.
  3. Items which we may reasonably consider to be unsuitable for carriage because they are dangerous or unsafe, because they cannot be transported owing to their weight, size, shape or character, or because they are perishable or too fragile for the type of aircraft being operated.

Firearms and ammunition other than for hunting and sporting purposes may not be carried as baggage. Firearms and ammunition for hunting and sporting purposes may only be carried as checked baggage. Firearms must be unloaded with the safety catch on. The carriage of ammunition is subject to ICAO regulations.

Weapons such as antique firearms, swords, knives and similar objects may be accepted as checked baggage at our discretion but may not be taken on board the aircraft as unchecked baggage.

Individual lithium batteries or rechargeable lithium batteries (as used in electronic devices such as laptop computers, mobile phones, watches, cameras) may only be carried in unchecked baggage. A maximum of two single lithium batteries or rechargeable batteries with a watt-hour rating of up to 160Wh may be carried as spare batteries for electronic equipment. The carriage of individual batteries or rechargeable batteries with a watt-hour rating between 100Wh and 160Wh requires the prior consent of the airline.

Air Adelphi shall not accept any liability for the loss or damage of items which you include in your baggage despite the restrictions laid down in Article 8.3.1, 8.3.2, 8.3.3 and 8.3.4.

8.4 Right to refuse carriage

Air Adelphi may refuse to carry any of the prohibited items listed in Article 8.3.

Air Adelphi may refuse to carry baggage that has not been packed properly and securely in proper suitcases or other containers.

8.5 Right to search

For reasons of safety and security, we may request that you permit a search and scan of your person and/or your baggage as well as an x-ray of your baggage. Your baggage may also be searched and x-rayed in your absence. These activities are designed to determine whether your baggage contains any items listed in Article 8.3.1 or any firearms or ammunition, which we have not been declared as set out in Articles 8.3.2 or 8.3.3. If you are unwilling to comply with such a request, we may refuse to carry you or your baggage.

8.6 Checked baggage

Once you have handed over your baggage to us, we take custody of it. We will enter the relevant information in your ticket and provide you with a baggage receipt. If we issue a baggage identification tag in addition to the receipt, this helps merely to identify the baggage. Please note that checked baggage cannot be checked straight through to the final destination indicated on your ticket. For International connections passengers are required to collect their checked baggage and check-in at the respective international check-in counters.

Every piece of checked baggage must be labelled with your name or other personal identification.

We will carry your checked baggage, whenever possible, on the same aircraft as you, unless we decide for safety, security or operational reasons to carry it on another flight.

If, due to the late arrival of your international flight, your checked baggage cannot travel on the same aircraft as you, it will be kept securely and put on the next flight on which space is available.

If, due to the excess weight of your checked baggage, it cannot be accommodated on the same aircraft as you, our handlers will ensure that items are transferred on to the next flight on which space is available. There will be an additional handling charge of US$50 per piece of checked baggage for this service

8.7 Unchecked baggage

We set maximum dimensions and weights for baggage you carry on to the plane. If your unchecked baggage does not meet these requirements, you must check it in as checked baggage.

If items do not meet the requirements set forth in Article 8.7.1 but are unsuitable to be carried in the hold (e.g. musical instruments), we will only carry these items as unchecked baggage if you have notified us in advance, and we have expressly agreed to carry these items. You may be asked to pay an extra charge for this service.

8.8 Delivery of checked baggage

You must collect your checked baggage as soon as we have made it available at your place of destination or stopover. If you do not collect it within a reasonable time, we may charge you a storage fee. If you do not claim your checked baggage within 3 months from the date we make it available, we may dispose of it without any liability to you.

Only the person with the baggage identification tag can claim a piece of checked baggage.

If a person claiming a piece of checked baggage cannot produce the baggage receipt or identify the baggage with the help of the baggage identification tag, we will only deliver the baggage if such person can prove to our satisfaction that they are entitled to claim the baggage. We shall be entitled to request an adequate security from you to cover any loss, damage or expense that may arise as a result of such delivery.

Article 9 - Schedules, delays and cancellation of flights

9.1 Schedules

The flight times shown in our timetables may change between the date of publication and the date you actually travel. We do not guarantee these flight times to you and they do not form part of your contract of carriage with us.

The last direct service of the day departs for Mustique at 16:30. Your international flight needs to land in BGI or UVF before 16:00 to guarantee a same day arrival. If your international flight is delayed, every effort will be made to get you to Mustique on the next available flight, but this may mean an overnight stay in Barbados, St Lucia or flying direct to St. Vincent where we might be able to source, on your behalf, alternative transportation by sea. Air Adelphi will not be liable for any additional costs incurred due to the late arrival of international carriers and any additional transport costs, including the costs of taxis,
boats and hotels, do not form part of your ticket.

If we need to change our scheduled departure time after your ticket has been issued, we will endeavour to notify you of any such changes. If, after you buy your ticket, we make a significant change to the scheduled departure time of your flight and we are unable to book you on another flight, you will be entitled to a refund in accordance with Article 10.

9.2 Cancellations, rebooking, delays

We will endeavour to take all reasonable measures necessary to avoid delay in carrying you and your baggage. In order to prevent a flight being cancelled these measures may include arranging for a flight to be operated by another airline or aircraft on our behalf.

If, due to circumstances beyond our control, we have to cancel or delay your flight, we shall either:

  1. carry you on another on another flight on which space is available;
  2. arrange for you to be carried to the destination indicated on the ticket or applicable portion thereof by another carrier or other
    means of transportation. If the sum of the fare for these revised arrangements is higher than the value of the ticket or
    applicable portion thereof, Air Adelphi shall require no additional charges from you; or
  3. make an involuntary refund in accordance with the provisions of Article 10;
    and shall be under no further liability.

Air Adelphi shall not be responsible for special, incidental, or consequential damages resulting from any cancellation, schedule change, or delay.

Article 10 - Refunds

10.1 General

We will refund tickets in accordance with the applicable fare terms and conditions as follows:

Unless provided otherwise in this Article, we shall be entitled to make a refund either to the person named on the ticket or to the person who paid for the ticket, provided satisfactory proof can be produced of such payment.

If the ticket has been paid for by a person other than the passenger named on it, and if the ticket indicates that there is a restriction on refunds, we will make the refund only to the person who paid for the ticket or in accordance with that person’s instructions.

Except for lost tickets, refunds will only be made in exchange for the ticket and all unused flight coupons.

A refund made to a person who submits the passenger coupon and all unused flight coupons claiming to be the person eligible for the refund shall be deemed to have been made to the person entitled to the refund.

10.2 Involuntary fare refunds

If we cancel a flight, fail to operate a flight according to schedule, fail to stop at your place of destination or stopover or cause you to miss a connecting flight on which you hold a confirmed reservation, we will refund your fare as follows:

  1. if you have not used any part of the ticket, the refund will be equal to the fare you have paid;
  2. if you have used part of the ticket, the refund will be equal to at least the difference between the fare you have paid and the correct fare for travel between the points for which you have used your ticket.

10.3 Voluntary fare refunds

If you are entitled to a refund of the fare for your ticket for reasons other than those set out in Article 10.2, the refund will be as follows:

  1. if you have not used any part of the ticket, the refund will be equal to the fare you have paid, less any applicable fees;
  2. if you have used part of the ticket, the refund will be equal to the difference between the fare you have paid and the correct fare for travel between the points for which you have used the ticket, less any applicable fees.

10.4 Right to refuse a fare refund

We may decide to refuse to give you a refund if you apply for it after the end of the ticket validity period.

We may refuse a refund on a ticket if, when you arrived in a country, you presented your ticket to us or to government officials as evidence of your intention to leave that country, unless you can prove to us that you have permission to stay in the country or you will be leaving the country on another airline or on another form of transport.

10.5 Currency

We reserve the right to make a refund in the same currency and using the same payment method you used to pay for the ticket.

Article 11 - Conduct aboard aircraft

If you conduct yourself aboard the aircraft so as to endanger the aircraft or any person or property on board, or obstruct the crew in the performance of their duties, or fail to comply with any instructions of the crew, or behave in a manner to which other passengers may reasonably object, we may take such measures as we deem necessary to prevent continuation of such conduct, including restraining you or removing you from the aircraft.

While aboard the aircraft, you may not operate portable radios, electronic games or transmitting devices including radiocontrolled toys and walkie-talkies. You shall not operate any other electronic devices on board without our permission, except for portable electronic devices that the operator of the aircraft has determined will not cause interference with the navigation or communication system of the aircraft. Moreover, portable recorders, hearing aids, heart pacemakers and electric shavers may be used.

You will reimburse Air Adelphi for any costs of: (a)repairing or replacing property lost, damaged, or destroyed by you; (b)compensating any passenger or crew member affected by your actions; and (c)delaying the aircraft for the purpose of removing you and/or your baggage. We may apply towards such payment or expenditure the value of any unused carriage on your ticket, or any of your funds in our possession.

Article 12 - Arrangements for additional services

If Air Adelphi makes arrangements with a third party to provide additional services for you or issues you with a ticket or voucher relating to transport services provided by third parties, the terms and conditions of the third party providing those services will apply, and Air Adelphi will not accept any liability save in cases of negligence on its part when booking such services.
