1.2 Air Prishtina AG considers the booking as accepted at the time the passenger receives the booking confirmation per E-Mail or SMS. In the event of sales via phone through the Contact Center, the declaration of acceptance can be done formlessly or through concludent behaviour (the vocal transmission of the booking code).
1.3 The passenger is obliged to verify the correctness of the transmitted reservation data and, if necessary, immediately point out any incorrectness, discrepancy or lack of delivery. Delayed reference to incorrectness or discrepancy does not give rise to a withdrawal of the contract.
