Princess Cruises Adds EZAIR Program

Fly Me to My Ship

Princess Cruises has just made it easier to complete air travel arrangements for your cruise vacation.  eZAir is a completely redesigned air program, available to Princess Travel Partners, that adds greater flexibility and choice to the process of booking flights to go with a cruise. When booking, available flights can be reviewed in real time and the desired air schedule and carrier can be chosen at time of booking.

Previously, cruise line air was a set price and flight details were given later. If you selected the cruise line air, you either had to accept whatever was selected for you or pay an additional fee to use custom air. Passengers often opted to purchase independent air simply because they were in control of the flight schedule.

Princess Cruises has eliminated fees to customize air. Only the flight schedules that work with the cruise itinerary are offered.  This new tool makes selecting flights easy and allows you to be in control of your schedule.

Flights can now be planned to your wishes...

Your cruise specialist now has access to publicly-available flights and fares, in addition to Princess contracted air, that work with the cruise itinerary.  Flights are available to book between 330 days prior to the end of the vacation and 4 days prior to the cruise (subject to availability).

Flexible or Restricted...

eZAir offers two different air options – Flexible and Restricted -- depending on the certainty of the travel plans. The Flexible plan allows passengers to cancel or modify their reservation with no charges until 45 days prior to the first flight, while the Restricted option offers the benefit of a typically less expensive fare for those travelers who are comfortable with cancellation and change restrictions and fees. Both fare options may be viewed side by side, to easily make the best choice for the vacation schedule.

Peace of Mind...

Perhaps the most exciting feature of the new program is Next Port Protection, which is included with both Flexible and Restricted Air. If there is an airline delay that causes you to miss embarkation, Princess routes travelers to the next appropriate port of call at no extra air cost to the passenger!

Now available to book on virtually all sailings departing on or after September 1, 2010
