Sunwing will dispute credit card chargebacks on behalf of travel advisors, it said in a letter sent to travel partners yesterday.
The operator says it will reach out to agents in the event that additional information is required to dispute a chargeback.
Sunwing also expressed that it is "very happy" with the Government of Ontario's recent amendment of the Travel Industry Act. As part of the amendments, future travel credits or vouchers are deemed as an acceptable form of redemption for bookings impacted by COVID-19 and coverage under TICO's compensation fund has been expanded.
In the letter, Sunwing thanked advisors for supporting the company through the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic.
"We know that these last few weeks have been challenging for our travel agent partners, employees and the industry as a whole. We would like to thank you again for all your support as we navigate this unprecedented time," it wrote.
"We will get through this together."
