My girlfriend has purchased a ticket via Flighthub.ca in March.
The flight route is Toronto -> Istanbul -> Tirana.
Due to yesterday's terror attack on Istanbul's airport, Ataturk, my girlfriend doesn't feel safe to go to Tirana via Turkey anymore due to potential risk. The flight is scheduled for August.
I tried reading Flighthub's terms, but it doesn't mention anything regarding this issue. The underlying tickets purchased via Flighthub are from Turkish Airlines.
Is there a way to cancel this flight with a full refund or at least change the route without additional payment? This is a matter of security, so could this be considered?
This is the purchase summary
Purchase Summary Airfare: $771.06 CAD Taxes & Fees: $503.14 CAD
If she completely cancels her flight, can she get those taxes back? How long does a tax refund take?
