Because Air Algérie is a non-EU airline, your rights to flight compensation may not always be protected by British or EU law.
In order for you to be eligible for Air Algérie flight compensation, your delayed or cancelled flight must have departed from a UK or EU airport.
In general, it makes no difference which airline you fly with if you are flying from the United Kingdom or Europe.
Unfortunately, when flying to the UK/EU on a non-EU airline, your passengers' rights are not protected under British and European flight compensation regulations.
More information on this can be found in the table below.
Under the British and European regulations, if your Air Algérie flight from the UK/EU was delayed for more than 3 hours, you are likely entitled to flight compensation. Compensation is only available if the airline is the party at fault for the delay; if the delay was caused by a third party or by force majeure, compensation is not applicable.
To check if you are eligible for compensation, use our no-obligation Claim Calculator. If you are eligible, we can handle the entire claim on a "no win, no fee" basis and even fight for your rights in court if necessary!
Air Algérie flight delayed by 3 hours or more?
Claim compensation of up to £520!
You can only claim Air Algérie flight compensation if your flight has departed from a UK or EU airport.
Depending on the circumstances of your cancelled Air Algérie flight, you may be entitled to compensation of up to £520, a refund, or both!
You can claim compensation for an Air Algérie flight if the cancellation was announced fewer than 14 days before the departure date, according to British and European flight compensation regulations.
Air Algérie must be at fault for the cancellation — for more information on when the airline can refuse compensation, see the 'Extraordinary Circumstances' section of this article.
Remember that because Air Algérie is a non-EU airline, the right to compensation only applies to flights departing from the UK/EU.
If your Air Algérie flight from the UK/EU got cancelled, you can get a refund if:
The airline did not offer you an alternative flight
The airline did offer you an alternative flight, but you decided not to take it
You might get £520 in flight compensation for your delayed or cancelled Air Algérie flight.
With us, you can claim compensation in just a few minutes!
If your delayed or cancelled Air Algérie flight was from the UK/EU, you may claim Air Algérie flight compensation. The amount of compensation is determined by the distance of your flight:
For flights shorter than 1,500 km, the compensation is £220.
For flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km, the compensation is £350.
For flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU, the compensation is also £350.
For flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU, the compensation is £520 —but if your flight was delayed by fewer than 4 hours, the total amount might be reduced by 50%.
When the delay or cancellation was caused by a third party or force majeure, Air Algérie has the possibility to refuse compensation. Those situations are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.
Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are:
Bad weather conditions, such as thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.
A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry (for example, a strike of air traffic control workers at a specific airport).
However, a strike of the airline's 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.
If your Air Algérie flight was not departing from the UK or the EU, you are not entitled to flight compensation under the British and European regulations.
Beware: airlines sometimes claim that an extraordinary circumstance happened, even if that was not the case! They do it to avoid paying out compensation.
Don’t let the airline trick you. Check if you are eligible in just a minute using our Claim Calculator.
You have 6 years to claim compensation and refund if you flew from the United Kingdom. The exception is Scotland, where you have 5 years to claim.
