How much compensation can you get for a disrupted flight?
With the help of AirAdvisor for any flight delayed over 3 hours or cancelled flight you can get different flight delay compensation amounts depending on the duration of the delay in hours and the distance of your flight. The delayed flight compensation amount does not depend on the price of your flight ticket.
Regulation EC 261 states different flight delay compensation amounts as follows:
- All flights under 1,500 km for delay of more than 3 hours: €250
- Internal EU flights between 1,500 km – 3,000 km for delay of more than 3 hours: €400
- Non-Internal EU flights more than 3,000 km for delay of 3 – 4 hours: €300
- Non-Internal EU flights more than 1,500 km for delay of more than 4 hours: €600
When Are You Eligible for Flight Delay Compensation?
Know that in the unpleasant event of a flight delay, your rights are protected by the Regulation 261/2004 or simply called EC 261 which is among EU regulated laws.
The EU law requires airlines to pay compensation to passengers who suffered long flight delays.
Unfortunately few air travelers know about it.
Dont’ be one of them: know your rights when your flight is delayed and check if you’re eligible under EC 261!
No matter what your citizenship is or where you live to be entitled to compensation, according to EC 261, you need to meet the following requirements:
- You arrived at your final destination at least 3 hours late
- Your flight took off from an EU airport (with any airline) or landed in the EU (and was operated by an airline headquartered in the EU)
- The airline is responsible for the delay (i.e. the delay was not caused by “extraordinary circumstances”, like bad weather, air traffic control): any technical problems and technical faults considered by the Court of Appeal and the European Court of Justice which recognizes even unexpected issues as the airline fault.
How long after the flight delay can I claim compensation?
Considering EC 261 is retroactive allowing you to claim compensation for flight delays that occurred several years ago, exactly how far back you can claim varies depending on the statute of limitations of the country of departure or arrival.
