ACTA says it had received requests for materials to help travel agents guide their customers through what resources are available in the event of flight delays, cancellations, baggage delays, loss, and damage.

With the new tool, users can input the origin and destination of the impacted flight and the tool will display potential compensation and reimbursement rules applicable to that trip.

However, ACTA says this tool is not a substitution for legal advice, and users should seek counsel from a lawyer as needed.

The Association adds that it continues advocating with governments and suppliers on improving trip delays to enable economic recovery for Canada’s travel agencies and independent travel agents.
