What happens to your luggage when your flight is cancelled?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

When a flight is cancelled, passengers have the option to either rebook their flights with the airline, receive a refund, or use their tickets at a later date. The airlines will hold any luggage, and store it in an area until the passenger claims it. If a passenger is unable to come back to claim their luggage, the airline may contact them to assist in the return or the transfer of the luggage.
