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.

Extraordinary circumstances — can airBaltic deny me compensation?

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.

How long do I have to claim my airBaltic compensation and refund?

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.
