Presumably you're talking about a flight refund that was credited back to your credit card account? You would need to reach out to your credit card provider to discuss the details of receiving that amount back as a refund from the credit card company. In general, if your credit card account is still open, the credit card company will just hold those funds unless you contact them and request otherwise. I'm not certain if they have the ability to make a direct deposit, but in the past I've had credit card companies issue me a check for an outstanding credit.

Most credit card companies just let the amount sit in your account and apply the credit to things you are currently purchasing

 

If there is no account activity for several months (3 in PNC's case), then the amount is automatically refunded via check.
