If your airBaltic flight was delayed ny more than 3 hours, you may be entitled to compensation under British and European flight compensation regulations. For you to be eligible for compensation, the delay must have been caused by the airline's actions.
If you qualify, we will handle your entire claim on a "no win, no fee" basis. We will even go to court to defend your rights, if needed!
You may be entitled to flight compensation of up to £520, a ticket refund, or both depending on the circumstances surrounding your cancelled airBaltic flights.
Your airBaltic flight must have been cancelled less than 14 days before the original departure date for you to be eligible for compensation.
In some cases, the airline can deny you compensation. More information on such situations can be found in the section of this article titled "Extraordinary Circumstances."
If your airBaltic flight got cancelled, you could 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.

The amount of compensation depends on 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%.
Airlines frequently sell more tickets than the plane has available seats, and if they cannot find enough volunteers to give up their reservations, people may be denied boarding against their will.
airBaltic can deny flight compensation if the delay or cancellation was caused by a third party or force majeure. These 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.
Airlines can sometimes claim that an unusual circumstance occurred, even if this is not the case. They are hoping to avoid paying flight compensation to passengers.
If you flew from the United Kingdom, you have 6 years to claim flight compensation and a refund. The only exception is Scotland, where you have 5 years to file a claim.
The time limit may vary depending on the flight route as it depends on the following factors:
the law of the country of departure,
the law of the country of arrival,
and the law of the country where the airline is headquartered.
