Air Cairo flight compensation — what are my rights?

If your Air Cairo flight from Europe was delayed by more than 3 hours, you are likely entitled to flight compensation! The airline can deny you compensation only if the delay was caused by a third party or force majeure, and not the airline itself.

Depending on the exact circumstances surrounding your Air Cairo flight cancellation, you may be entitled to compensation of up to £520, a ticket refund, or both.

When can I claim compensation for my cancelled Air Cairo flight?

You can claim flight compensation if your flight was cancelled at the last minute (fewer than 14 days prior to the original departure date).

This only applies to flights departing from the UK/EU.

/!\ To be considered: even if you meet the above criteria, the airline may rightfully deny you compensation in some cases. See the "Extraordinary Circumstances" section of this article for more information on such situations.

When can I claim a refund for my cancelled Air Cairo flight?

If your Air Cairo flight from the EU was cancelled, you may be eligible for a refund if:

  1. The airline did not provide you with an alternative flight.

  2. The airline did offer you an alternative flight, but you declined the offer.

Extraordinary circumstances — can Air Cairo deny me compensation?

Sometimes, a delay or cancellation is not the fault of the airline but rather a third party or force majeure. These situations are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.

If one of the below options applies to your situation, the airline may rightfully deny you 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 aware, though! Airlines can sometimes claim that an extraordinary circumstance occurred, even if this was not the case. They do this in order to avoid paying compensation.
