A condition is that the departure date must be beyond seven days from the date of purchase. No fees is charged if the flight is canceled within 24 hours but after this time frame, the Emirates cancellation fee will be applicable.

For Refundable Tickets

In case of refundable tickets, the passenger can apply for the full amount refund. Also, Emirates flight ticket cancellation charges apply to each booking. So, if a group is traveling together and there is a cancellation each member of the group has to pay the Emirates ticket cancellation penalty. If you book a flight online, you can cancel it online as well and it is very convenient and easy but you still have the option of canceling it over the phone by calling the airlines customer care. The refund is processed automatically if you cancel a flight online.

For Non-Refundable Tickets

In case your ticket is nonrefundable the entire cost will be converted into points that can be redeemed at the time of booking the next flight within a period of one year.


If you cancel your flight after a period of 24 hours, a cancellation fee will be levied which will be deducted from your ticket fare and the Emirates flight cancellation refund amount will be processed in the original form of payment within 7-10 business days. If you cancel your flight within 24 hours of the booking but the flight is within 7 days you have to pay 200 USD which is the cancellation fees and the remaining amount will be processed as a Emirates airlines refund.
