What happens to luggage if flight is cancelled?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

If a flight is cancelled, the luggage that was checked in for that flight will be returned to the passenger with the rest of their property. Depending on the specific airline or airport, certain fees may apply. If the flight was canceled due to an airline's fault, preferably the luggage will be shipped for free. Otherwise, it is usually possible to have the luggage shipped to a desired location for a fee.
