  • In the case of a flight delay, cancellation, or denied boarding, Garuda Indonesia is obligated to provide assistance and care to passengers affected by such disruptions. This includes: free meals and refreshments, access to communication methods such as phone and email, accommodations if necessary, and transportation to and from the hotel. Be sure to keep any receipts for expenses incurred during the disruption, as these may be reimbursed by the airline.

Note: If your flight was delayed or cancelled because of an “extraordinary circumstance”, you won’t be able to claim flight compensation as the airline must be responsible for the flight disruption to provide passengers compensation.
