The new reforms drafted by the civil aviation ministry on name change and free cancellation of airline tickets within 24 hours of booking is a relief to the travelling public and boost to the aviation industry. The name correction facility and compensations on denied boarding, delay and flight cancellation will provide relief to passengers and also improve the flying experience in India.
