Your rights in the event of a delayed or cancelled BH Air flight

If you were a passenger on a BH Air flight that was cancelled or delayed, your rights as an aviation passenger are protected by European and British law. In some instances, you may be eligible for BH Air compensation of up to £520 and a complete refund of the ticket cost for your cancelled BH Air itinerary.

  • Was your BH Air flight delayed? You can likely claim flight compensation if your flight was delayed for a minimum of 3 hours.

  • Was your BH Air flight cancelled? If you rejected the airline's replacement flight, you can ask for a refund. Moreover, if your flight was cancelled with less than 14 days left until departure, you can be qualified for BH Air flight compensation.

  • Whatever the reason for the flight disruption, airlines are required by law to offer customers specialised assistance, which is also called "right to care." You can get vouchers for food and drink, communication services and, if required, lodging and transportation. Get the vouchers from the airline's service counter at the airport, and if they won't provide them to you, buy what you need anyway because they will have to pay you back for those costs (as long as they are reasonable) by law.


You won't be able to receive flight compensation if an "extraordinary circumstance" caused your flight to be cancelled or delayed. The airline must be held accountable for the flight disruption to compensate passengers.

I am travelling outside of the UK/EU with BH Air. Am I still eligible for compensation?

You most certainly can. All flights operated by BH Air are subject to the EU flight compensation regulations as a result of the company's headquarters being in Sofia, Bulgaria. You are still eligible to submit a claim for compensation for a flight disruption even if you were travelling on a BH Air route, let's say to or from Singapore.

The table below illustrates how conditions could differ if your flight is conducted by a non-EU carrier.

Extraordinary circumstances — can BH Air deny me compensation?

When a delay or cancellation wasn't caused by BH Air but rather by a third party or an unforeseen event, compensation might not be granted. The airline is not required to offer compensation in such instances because they are not responsible for the disruption, which we refer to as extraordinary circumstances.

The following is a list of some of the most common extraordinary circumstances:

  • 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.

Even if it wasn't the case, airlines may still claim that extraordinary circumstances occurred. Airlines frequently employ this strategy to avoid having to pay compensation.

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

According to Bulgarian legislation, you have 3 years to file a compensation claim. Therefore, if you use BH Air to fly to or from Sofia, you will have up to 3 years to submit a claim.

The timeframe to file a claim might be different because it varies based on your flight route. For instance, if you were flying out of the UK, you have 6 years to do so.
