Air Canada https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/home/book/travel-news-and-updates.html#/20170128New U.S. Entry Restrictions

January 28, 2017

Like other carriers, we are required to ensure passengers have all the travel documents necessary to enter in, or transit through, each country they are travelling to. As a result of new United States entry restrictions for specific passport holders, Air Canada has implemented a policy for customers who purchased an Air Canada ticket no later than January 29, 2017 for travel to or via the United States effective immediately, and who are holders of a passport from one of the following countries:

Iran
Iraq
Libya
Somalia
Sudan
Syria
Yemen
If you are affected by this policy, you may contact Air Canada Reservations to change your flight, free of charge, to another date between now and January 20, 2018, subject to availability in the cabin you originally purchased. Otherwise, any fare difference will apply.

You may also choose to travel to an alternate destination. Any change fees will be waived; however, any fare difference will apply. It is also possible to request a refund or credit towards future travel.

Air France http://corporate.airfrance.com/en/press/why-is-air-france-obliged-to-apply-the-new-restrictions-on-entry-into-the-united-states/On January 28, 2017, Air France was informed by the United States Government of new restrictions on entry into the country with immediate effect.

Like all airlines, Air France is required to comply with the requirements for entry into all the countries it serves and is therefore not allowed to carry passengers knowingly on its to countries they are not allowed to enter. In doing so, Air France is simply complying with the international rules governing air transport, which it is obliged to respect.

In this way, Air France was obliged to offload 15 passengers from the countries listed in the decree on to the United States. All other airlines operating to the United States proceeded in the same way.

Air France's main concern is to protect its customers, including the possible consequences of arriving in a country they are not allowed to enter, and to limit the inconvenience caused to them by the decision of the US authorities. Measures were immediately implemented to inform the passengers concerned in advance and to help those who wish to return to their point of departure. None of them were left unaided.

Hainan Airlines http://www.iata.org/pressroom/pr/Pages/2017-01-30-01.aspxStatement on the US Executive Order on Travel
Translation: French (pdf), Portuguese (pdf) and Spanish (pdf)
Geneva - The International Air Transport Association (IATA) works with its 265 member airlines for safe, secure, efficient and sustainable global air transport links. As a matter of principle we work for the free movement of trade and people across borders.
IATA also recognizes that states have the right and duty to protect their citizens by enforcing their borders. Where this has implications for air travel, we work with our member airlines to help them comply with these requirements efficiently and effectively. Global systems and procedures exist to support this activity. IATA’s Timatic online solution, for example, is a global database for travel document requirements. It is updated constantly and used by airlines and travel agents around the world.
These systems can only support the efficient implementation of any government’s directives by the global air transport industry with advance coordination as well as with detailed and consistent operational information.
Entry requirements for the United States were changed significantly and immediately by an Executive Order (EO) issued 27 January 2017. The EO was issued without prior coordination or warning, causing confusion among both airlines and travelers. It also placed additional burdens on airlines to comply with unclear requirements, to bear implementation costs and to face potential penalties for non-compliance.
We ask for early clarity from the US administration on the current situation. Moreover, we urge all governments to provide sufficient advance coordination of changes in entry requirements so that travelers can clearly understand them and airlines can efficiently implement them.​

KLM https://techtalktranslated.com/2017/02/01/responses-from-airlines-re-travel-ban-tweets/“On 28 January 2017, President Trump of the United States of America signed an executive order that has immediate consequences for passengers from seven countries: Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen. As a result, KLM was compelled to inform seven passengers on Saturday that they would not be able to fly to the USA. Like all other airlines, KLM has to comply with the entrance requirements that countries set for travellers. Airlines are not permitted to carry passengers who do not meet those entrance requirements. In this, KLM complies with the aviation authorities’ international agreements. KLM regrets the inconvenience caused to its passengers who were confronted with this sudden change of circumstances. Although the fact that these passengers were unable to fly to the USA lies entirely outside KLM’s sphere of influence, we decided to offer these passengers a voucher equivalent in value to the flight they were unable to take to the USA. KLM thereby hopes to alleviate to some degree the inconvenience caused by the decision taken by the American authorities. KLM now informs affected passengers prior to departure. Passengers who were already on their way to Schiphol have been offered a free flight back to where they departed from. No KLM passenger has got stuck anywhere. KLM recommends you refer to the American authorities to find out the exact requirements for entry into the USA. Please read the IATA statement about travelling to the US.
