Payment / Refund

Double Payment/ Duplicate booking

What happens if I make a double payment or duplicate booking?

You can request for a Credit Voucher for a duplicate booking if 

  • You have accidentally made more than one (1) booking for the same passenger, destination, date, and time OR
  • Accidentally made the same booking after 24 hours OR
  • Used a different payment method which resulted in two bookings with different booking numbers. 

Before submitting your voucher request via Live Chat, please check for the following conditions:

  1. Both bookings must be for the same date(s), flight sector(s) and destinations (origin and destination)
  2. Both bookings must have the same passenger’s name list
  3. Credit Voucher request must be done before the departure date of your flight.

Note: We will maintain your first booking (based on the creation date and time) as a confirmed booking. Any approved Credit Voucher requests will be processed for the 2nd or subsequent booking(s). 

On top of that, you can also request for a credit voucher if you happen to have made a double payment (only one booking and one booking number), OR if the same booking was charged more than once. 

Credit Voucher

What is a Credit Voucher?

The amount spent on your flight booking will be reimbursed to you as a Credit Voucher for you to make future bookings with MYAirline.


Who is eligible to receive the Credit Voucher?

The Credit Voucher will only be issued to either the payee of the booking or the passenger who is travelling.

For example, if Yen has booked a flight for herself and her buddies Ray and Geo in one booking, the Credit Voucher equivalent to the amount spent on this booking will be issued to Yen or Ray and Geo should the booking be cancelled for valid reasons. 

The Credit Voucher is non-transferrable once issued, therefore Yen will not be able to transfer any of her credit voucher amount to Ray or Geo once she has received it. However, Yen can use her credit voucher to book flights for other people including friends and family.


How do I apply for a Credit Voucher?

Please reach out to us via Live Chat to ask for a Credit Voucher. Once your request is approved, the voucher will be sent to you via email within 10 days.

How can I use my Credit Voucher?

Step 1 – Go to and book your flights, choose any destination, any flight time, any date, and add any optional services you would like.

Step 2 - When you arrive at the payment page, under “Redeem Voucher” select “Add Voucher”. Fill in the Voucher number and pin, then select “Add”.

Step 3 – Once done, select “Complete Booking” to confirm your payment. 

If you have partially used up the Credit Voucher and your remaining Voucher balance is insufficient, you may use other payment options available to pay for the remaining balance such as credit card or online banking.

If the Credit Voucher balance is more than the amount payable, then the remaining balance of the Credit Voucher can be retained for the next flight booking until the end of its validity.  



Can I make a partial payment to confirm my booking? 

No, full payment is required for the booking to be confirmed. 


How do I know if my payment and booking was successful?

Occasionally, the large volume of traffic from sales can result in our payment gateway struggling to update payment for bookings in real time. Usually, upon confirmation of payment, you will be brought to the confirmation page where your Flight Itinerary will appear with the booking status stating "Confirmed".

Within 30 minutes, you will also receive the Flight Itinerary through your email provided during your booking.
