    Award booking and application procedures may be modified by the Company.

    3.2 Awards are valid for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance of the Award, with some exceptions such as special Promotional Offers or those declared in a specific market (information provided locally). Once the ticket has been issued, a Member may, subject to conditions, change or cancel his Award ticket no later than one working day prior to departure of the first flight segment and shall do so by notifying the Customer Service Centre. Once the Award ticket has been issued, no change of beneficiary will be accepted under any circumstances. Before departure, the Member may change the date and/or destination within the same award zone through an immediate new reservation or may cancel the Award. After departure, the Member may only modify the return date and may cancel the return ticket. After the return date, if the trip has not been made, the Airline Award is no longer valid and cannot be refunded. An administrative fee in case of change and/or cancellation may be applicable as further defined in KQ-MSAFIRI GOLD CREDIT CARD Communication, except in the duly proven cases of (i) death or serious illness, serious complications in pregnancy, or serious injury of either the Member, one of the participants in the Award, or an immediate family member of the Member or (ii) fire, burglary, storm, or any similar serious event which reasonably prevents the Member from travelling. The member shall be required to supply documentation evidencing the foregoing to the reasonable satisfaction of the Company.

    3.3 All Airline Awards must be taken on routes operated by Kenya Airways only, and should be ordered at least 2 weeks prior to departure. Non-airline Awards should be requested at least 2 weeks prior to date of use. Miles are deducted at the issuing of the Award (Award ticket or Award Upgrade) or the voucher (non-airline Award). The placing of Members on standby lists is not allowed.
    3.4 All flight segments that are part of the same Award should be booked at the same time.

    3.5 To travel with a child younger than two (2) years of age, an adult travelling with an Award ticket must make a reservation for the infant with the airline on which the Award ticket is issued, according to the applicable tariff rates of said airline. This reservation cannot be made by the customer Service Centre.
    3.6 A beneficiary entitled to a travel-category reduction (child, student, senior citizen, etc.) cannot be granted any reduction in the number of Miles required for the Award ticket.
    3.7 Award tickets and Award Upgrades are non-endorsable and cannot be used on an airline other than the airline whose designated airline code is indicated on the ticket, unless otherwise decided by the applicable airline at its reasonable discretion.
    3.8 Lost, stolen or expired Awards will not be refundable, replaced or extended.
    3.9 A Member can request an Award Upgrade for an eligible flight on an airline offering this Award as defined in KQ-MSAFIRI GOLD CREDIT CARD Communication subject to the condition that the Member has a confirmed (not waitlisted) and issued full-fare ticket. A Member can redeem Award Miles for only one Award Upgrade per flight. It is thus impossible to have a double Award Upgrade from Economy to First Class. The Award Upgrade is issued exclusively in the name of the Member or of anyone travelling with him on the same flight.
    3.10 The Member or beneficiary of any Award is responsible for paying all applicable taxes, fees, levies and/or surcharges associated with the issue or use of an Award (including but not limited to customs, inspection, security, agriculture, fuel and departure charges) and obtaining necessary travel documents for the Airline Award, including visa vaccination and insurance. Furthermore, the Member or the beneficiary will adhere to any legally or otherwise required country-specific regulation and check the customs formalities in force in the destination country.
    3.11 Only the Member is entitled to apply for an Award. The Member may order an Award either for himself or for any other person designated by the Member at the time the Award is requested, subject to the Terms and Conditions of the Programme.

    3.12 If a Member has a complaint regarding the use of any Award, the member should notify the Customer Service Centre in writing within 21 days of the Award being used.

    3.13 Depending on the Award involved, Airline Awards will be either sent to the Member’s regular mailing address as stored in the Company’s database, or collected at selected airport or city ticket offices allowed to issue Award tickets. The Company cannot be held responsible for delays or losses caused by postal service or by customs procedures. As soon as the Award application has been processed, the Miles required for the Award are debited to the Member’s account in accordance with the scale in force on the application date, first using the Miles earliest in date. Internal difficulties may result in late debits to accounts. Non-airline Awards are issued and forwarded to the Member’s mailing address. In the event of an e-ticket, the receipt will be sent to the e-mail address given by the Member. If tickets are issued by Kenya Airways or its establishments or agencies, Members must show their Card. If the person collecting the ticket is not the Member, that person must submit, for each ticket collection, in addition to the Card of the Member (or a copy thereof), proof of identity of the Member and a signed affidavit from the Member, bearing his original signature, authorizing such collection. This procedure may be modified or suspended at any time by the Company.

    3.14 Awards tickets shall be issued for (i) a one-way flight, (ii) a return flight or (iii) an “open-jaw round trip flight” on Kenya Airways, KQ-Msafiri Gold Credit card loyalty program partners, Kenya Airways and/or their Airline Partners following the most direct route in both journey directions up to a maximum of six different flight segments. Subject to the conditions specified in KQ-MSAFIRI GOLD CREDIT CARD Communication, there may be a break in the journey (stopover). An “open-jaw round trip flight” is a round trip flight in which points of departure and arrival are different but within the same zone, or where the originating station for the return flight is different from the arrival station for the outgoing flight but within the same zone. Furthermore, Award tickets may also be issued for a “round the world trip” on Kenya Airways, and certain Partners defined in KQ-MSAFIRI GOLD CREDIT CARD Communication and shall in principle be in the same travel class of service throughout the journey and must include a half trip point, this being a point where the outward journey ends and where the homeward journey begins, unless otherwise provided for in KQ-MSAFIRI GOLD CREDIT CARD Communication. The number of possible breaks in the journey (stop overs) for such a “round the world trip” shall be specified at the time of booking. All Award tickets are subject to changes in air traffic rights, or decisions taken by the aforementioned airlines in their reasonable discretion to close any flight segments.
    3.15 Award tickets may not be used for medical stretcher transport, baby seats, the accompaniment of children by hostess or to get an extra seat.

    3.16 Airline Awards cannot be cumulated on the same flight for the same Member or his beneficiary.
    3.17 Non-Airline Awards: Any Member having the required number of currently valid Miles may benefit from an Award for him or herself or any other persons designated by the Member under conditions and subject to restrictions notified to the Member. The Member may not, however, benefit from an Award in the form of a non-airline service totally free of charges unless he or she has already earned Miles with the Partner supplying the desired Award. Any beneficiary of an Award must meet the legal requirements for the use of the desired service (e.g. age, driving license) and must abide by the conditions laid down by the
    Partner concerned, notably in regard to deposit payments on reservations with Partners.

    4 Credit of Miles resulting from a transfer.

    4.1 The calculation units of certain Partner loyalty programmes can be converted into Miles and transferred to the KQ-MSAFIRI GOLD CREDIT CARD account.
