General terms and conditions apply to all flights booked and confirmed to G.E. Jetway Transfers Ltd.
By accepting a flight from G.E. Jetway Services Ltd you accept the terms and conditions as described below, unless otherwise stated on the specific flight charter agreement.
1. G.E. Jetway Transfers Ltd undertakes the obligation to perform the Flight in full accordance with the applicable legislation by the Aircraft, which shall be in airworthy condition, properly manned and supplied. The performance of the Flight shall be subject to the competent authorities granting of the required permits for landing, overflying etc., where and if applicable. The Aircraft will not perform any single sector of the Flight if all the permits required for the performance of that sector of the Flight are not granted before take off. In case that before the beginning of the Flight any required permit for the rest of the sectors is not granted, the Air Carrier is obliged to inform the Charterer, and the latter shall decide whether the Flight shall be performed. In case the Flight is cancelled due to the aforesaid reason, the Charterer is released from its obligation to pay the Fare. In case the Charterer decides the performance of the Flight without the permits required for the entire or certain sectors of the Flight and, provided the said permits are finally not granted, the Charterer is obliged to pay the Fare corresponding to the performed sectors of the Flight, including the sector corresponding to the trip from the termination point of the Flight back to the Base Airport, according to the calculation provided for in article 12 of the herepresent.
2. Before the beginning of the Flight the Air Carrier is entitled to replace the Aircraft of Table II with another bone, operated by the Air Carrier, having similar or better specifications and transport capacity without the consent of the Charterer. The consent of the Charterer is necessary in case the aforesaid aircraft is operated by another air carrier. In case that for any other reason the aircraft of Table II becomes inappropriate to fly, to the reasonable judgment of the Air Carrier, the latter has the right but not the obligation to perform the Flight by another aircraft (operated by it or, with the consent of the Charterer, by another air carrier) with similar or better transport capacity and specifications, or, in the absence of such an aircraft by an aircraft with lower transport capacity and specifications, with the consent of the Charterer and, in the latter case, with a relevant decrease of the Fare, mutually agreed upon.
3. In case of cancellation of the Flight for the above-mentioned reason or for any other reason not ascribed to the Air Carrier’s fault, the latter is obliged to immediately inform the Charterer and return the Fare, if already paid in advance, without , however incurring any liability to indemnify the Charterer.
4. In the event that the landing of the Aircraft at the destination is not possible due to adverse weather conditions or other reasons of force majeure, having emerged during the Flight, the Air Carrier/Broker is under no obligation to return the Fare to the Charterer, if paid, nor is the Charterer released from its obligation to pay the Fare. For the additional trip performed due to the aforesaid reason, the Fare shall be increased according to article 12, if the Air Carrier/Broker had informed the Charterer before taking off that landing at the destination might be not possible for the aforesaid reasons and the Charterer insisted in the performance of the Flight.
5. The departure and arrival times, mentioned in the description of the Flight are subject to the changes eventually imposed by the competent authorities. Further, the Air Carrier has the right to make changes, if at his reasonable judgment, it is necessary for reasons pertaining to the health of passengers and/or the safety of the Flight, in case of failure of the Aircraft , as well as in any case of force majeure, having, however the obligation to promptly inform the Charterer. In the aforesaid cases, the responsibility of the Air Carrier is confined to arranging for the food, transfer and accommodation of the passengers during the delay, the relevant expenses being borne by the Charterer, except the case of Aircraft failure. In the latter case, the Air Carrier shall take all reasonable steps for finding another aircraft, with similar specifications and transport capacity, or if such is not available with lower ones, if the Charterer consents, in order to complete the Flight; in case this is not possible, the Air Carrier shall arrange at its own expenses, for the transportation of the Charterer’s passengers to their next destination, following the most appropriate- by objective criteria- feasible and available schedules of regular airlines. Further, in case the departure of the aircraft is subject to prior deicing the Fare shall be increased according to the price per occurrence mentioned in the main body of the agreement.
6. The Charterer has, in the cases mentioned in article 5, the right to terminate either totally or partially (i.e. for one or more sectors of the Flight) the herepresent Agreement. In case of total termination, if the Aircraft has not taken off from its Base Airport, the Air Carrier is obliged to return any paid Fare or if the Fare has not been paid, the Charterer is released from such obligation, the Air Carrier incurring, however, no liability to indemnify the Charterer. If the termination affects a sector of the Flight, the Charterer owes part of the Fare pursuant to the following: a) when the change is due to an Aircraft failure, Fare is due for the performed sectors of the Flight during which the passengers of the Charterer were on board, b) when the change is due to any other reason mentioned in article 5, Fare is due: (i) for the trip performed by the Aircraft from the Base Airport and irrespective of whether passengers of the Charterer were on board, as well as (ii) for the trip performed for the return of the Aircraft from the point where the said change was decided to the Base Airport of the Aircraft.
7. The Air Carrier/Broker is not obliged, upon an eventual relevant request of the Charterer or the passengers, to perform a Flight different from the one agreed upon,. In case the Air Carrier does accept the proposed change, the Charterer is obliged to pay the Fare resulting from the calculation provided for in article 12, if exceeding the Fare agreed upon before the said change. In case the new Fare is lower than the one initially agreed upon, the Air Carrier is not under any obligation to return any part of the Fare to the Charterer.
8. The Charterer is obliged to pay to the Air Carrier the Fare, as well as any other amount owed according to the present Appendix, upon issuance of the relevant invoice.

The Air Carrier is not obliged to delay the departure of the Aircraft in case that any of the passengers is not present at the time provided for according to the aforesaid and/or has not the necessary Travel Documents and/or the Air Carrier deems that the condition of his health renders him incapable of traveling, as well as in case of any other omission or violation of any of the terms of the herepresent Agreement by the Charterer or by any passenger, and it is not responsible towards the Charterer and/or the aforesaid passengers for not admitting such passengers in the Flight, in the aforementioned cases.
