When you fly with Air Dolomiti, your rights are protected under the European regulation, also known as EU261. If your flight is delayed or cancelled, this regulation guarantees you the right to flight compensation of up to £520.
Were you over 3 hours late due to an Air Dolomiti flight delay? Then you may be eligible for Air Dolomiti flight compensation of up to £520.
The amount of compensation is determined by 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|
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your Air Dolomiti flight's cancellation, you may be entitled to a ticket refund, compensation of up to £520, or both.
You may be eligible for flight compensation if your flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days before the scheduled departure date.
You must also consider unusual circumstances, such as a natural disaster that prevents the flight from taking off — if these extraordinary circumstances apply to your flight, you may be ineligible for compensation.
If your flight was cancelled and you did not take the airline's alternative flight, you are likely entitled to a refund from Air Dolomiti. If you were not offered an alternative flight, you are also entitled to a ticket refund.
|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|
Accepting a travel voucher in lieu of a refund is not recommended. Here’s why:
Accepting a travel voucher forces you to fly with the same airline again. In addition, the airline usually sets a time limit for redeeming the voucher.
If the airline declares bankruptcy, you may be unable to convert your voucher into a cash refund — in other words, your money will be lost.
Overbooking happens more often than many people think — and an overbooked flight can ruin your holiday plans at the very last minute.
Why does overbooking happen? Airlines frequently sell more tickets than there are available seats on the plane, and if they cannot find enough volunteers to give up their reservations, people may be denied boarding against their will. But if this happens to be the case: you have rights!

Extraordinary circumstances are situations where the airline is not the party at fault for the flight delay or cancellation. If any of the following situations apply to your Air Dolomiti flight delay or cancellation, you may be ineligible for flight compensation (n.b. this list is non-exhaustive):
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.
Here’s a tip: airlines sometimes claim that extraordinary circumstances occurred when they did not! They do so to avoid having to pay out flight compensation to passengers.
