Aegean Airlines is the largest Greek airline and the country’s flag carrier. Founded in 1987 (as Aegean Aviation), the airline currently flies from multiple Greek airports to cities across the world, including various locations in the UK and the EU, as well as destinations like Egypt and Jordan.
Besides its Greek hubs in Athens and Thessaloniki, Aegean Airlines has also a hub in Cyprus, at the Larnaca International Airport. The Cypriot hub was established as a response to the 2015 bankruptcy of Cyprus Airways.
During the summer holiday season, Aegean Airlines operates a number of charter flights in cooperation with major tour operators across Europe. This includes flights between popular Greek holiday destinations and cities in countries like the UK and Italy.
Aegean Airlines is part of Star Alliance.
Was your Aegean Airlines flight delayed or cancelled?
Claim your compensation in just a few minutes!
When you fly with Aegean Airlines, your air passenger rights are protected by the European Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, known also as EU261 or Flight Compensation Regulation. After Brexit, this regulation was adopted into British law.
Under these regulations, passengers have a right to flight compensation and refund in certain circumstances.
Was your Aegean Airlines flight delayed by at least 3 hours? If the delay is the airline’s fault, you can claim up to £520 in Aegean Airlines flight compensation.
Was your Aegean Airlines flight cancelled? If you did not take any alternative flight offered by the airline, you can claim a full monetary refund.
Additionally, if Aegean Airlines announced the cancellation of your flight fewer than 14 days prior to departure, you might be also entitled to flight compensation of up to £520.
Holidays ruined by flight delay or cancellation?
Get up to £520 in compensation!
In certain circumstances, you might be eligible for flight compensation if your Aegean Airlines flight got delayed.
You can claim up to £520 in compensation if your case meets the following two criteria:
Your flight was delayed by at least 3 hours.
The airline is the party at fault for the delay.
(There are extraordinary circumstances to consider, such as bad weather or political instability in the country.)
For all flights of fewer than 1,500 km, the compensation is £220.
For all flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km, the compensation is £350.
For all flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU, the compensation is also £350.
For all flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU, the compensation is £520 — however, if your flight was delayed by fewer than 4 hours, the total amount might be reduced by 50%.
If you were flying with Aegean Airlines from the UK to Greece, you are most likely entitled £350.
Depending on the exact circumstance of your flight cancellation, you might be entitled to flight compensation of up to £520 and/or a full monetary refund.
You can claim your Aegean Airlines refund if your flight was cancelled and you did not take any alternative flight offered by the airline.
We do not recommend doing so. Accepting a travel voucher forces you to use this exact airline in the future and does not protect your money in the event of the airline’s bankruptcy.
In most cases, you can claim your cancelled flight compensation if your flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days prior to the initially planned departure date. However, some additional criteria apply in regards to the alternative flight that the airline might offer you — we explain it more in the table below.
It’s possible to claim both a refund and compensation if your flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days prior to the original departure date and you decided not to take any alternative flight offered by the airline.
To receive compensation, you also need to take into consideration additional criteria in regards to the alternative flight offered by the airline (see the table below) as well as extraordinary circumstances.
There are certain situations in which the airline is not obliged to pay you compensation for a cancelled or delayed flight. We call these extraordinary circumstances.
Bad weather, for example thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.
A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry.
HOWEVER! A strike of a specific airline/their crew is not considered an extraordinary circumstance!
Political circumstances, such as a terrorist attack or general security risk due to political unrest.
Natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions and hurricanes.
A collision between the aircraft and birds or other foreign objects.
An ill or unruly passenger.
Flight delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.
However, you should be aware that airlines sometimes use extraordinary circumstances as an excuse to reject even the valid claims.
