If your Air Corsica flight was cancelled or delayed, keep in mind that British regulations protect your rights as an air passenger. In certain circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation of up to £520 and a full refund of the ticket price for your Air Corsica cancelled flight.”
Was your Air Corsica flight delayed by more than 3 hours upon arrival? Good news: according to the EU261 regulation, you could be eligible for up to £520 in Air Corsica flight compensation!
The amount of compensation depends on the flight distance.
|Distance of your flight||Compensation|
|Flights shorter than 1,500 km||Get £220 per passenger|
|Flight between 1,500 and 3,500 km||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU||Get £520 per passenger|
The policies for refunds and compensation vary according to the specifics of your Air Corsica flight cancellation. In accordance with EU regulations, you may be eligible for flight compensation up to £520, a full financial refund for your flight, or both, in the event that your Air Corsica flight is cancelled.
If an Air Corsica flight is cancelled less than 14 days before the scheduled departure date, passengers may be eligible for flight compensation.
But extraordinary circumstances like a natural disaster that prevents the flight from taking off must be taken into account. If these unusual events apply to your flight, you might not be eligible for compensation.
In general, if the airline offered you an alternative flight and you declined the offer, you can ask for the full monetary refund of your cancelled Air Corsica flight.
The same holds true if the airline doesn't provide you with any alternative flights at all.
|Cancellation notice||Alternative flight||Compensation|
|Fewer than 7 days in advance||Departs 1h+ earlier or arrived 2h+ later||Yes|
|7-14 days in advance||Departs 2h+ earlier or arrived 4h+ later||Yes|
|Fewer than 14 days in advance||No alternative flight offered||Yes + refund|
We would like to underline that accepting an airline's voucher in lieu of a monetary refund is never a good idea, regardless of the situation. Here’s why:
You have to book another flight with the same airline if you accept a travel voucher. The airline typically sets a deadline for using the voucher as well.
You might not be able to turn your voucher into a cash refund if the airline files for bankruptcy; in this case, your money would be lost.
Yes, you can. Air Corsica is a French airline. As a result, EU261 applies to all Air Corsica flights that are delayed or cancelled.
However, if you were flying with a non-EU/non-UK airline, the situation might be different. More details in the table below.
|Type of flight||Example||Compensation|
|Flying with a British carrier||Tokyo to London with British Airways||Yes|
|Flying with a EU carrier||Amsterdam to London with KLM||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier from the UK||London to Tokyo with Japan Airlines||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier to the UK||Tokyo to London with Japan Airlines||No|
Extraordinary circumstances occur when the airline is not at fault for the delay or cancellation. If any of the following apply to your Air Corsica flight delay or cancellation (this list is not exhaustive), you may be ineligible for flight compensation:
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.
Be cautious: airlines frequently claim that extraordinary circumstances occurred when they did not! They do so to avoid having to compensate passengers for lost flights.
