Your rights in the event of a delayed or cancelled flyAmelia flight

Your rights as an air passenger are protected if you were on a flyAmelia flight that was cancelled or delayed by European and British law. You may be entitled to compensation from flyAmelia up to £520 in the event that your flight is cancelled, in addition to receiving a full ticket refund.

  • Was your flyAmelia flight delayed? In the event that your flight was delayed by at least 3 hours, you may be entitled to flight compensation.

  • Was your flyAmelia flight cancelled? If you chose not to take the airline's replacement flight, you are entitled to a refund. Additionally, if your flight was cancelled with less than 14 days to departure, you may be eligible for flyAmelia flight compensation.

  • Regardless of what caused the flight delay, airlines must provide customers with special assistance, or the "right to care," as mandated by law. For communication, food and drink, and, if necessary, transportation and lodging needs, vouchers are offered. Purchase what you require even if the airline's service desk at the airport declines to give you the vouchers because they are legally required to reimburse your costs (as long as they are reasonable).

Unfortunately if your flight delay or cancellation was caused by an "extraordinary circumstance," you will not be able to claim compensation. The airline has to be accountable for the flight disruption in order to compensate passengers.

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

Most definitely. The French airline flyAmelia leaves from Paris Airport-Le Bourget, so all flyAmelia flights that are delayed or cancelled as a result are covered by the European air passenger rights regulation EU261.

However, the situation could be different if you were travelling with a non-EU or non-UK airline. The table below provides details.

flyAmelia is offering me a travel voucher instead of a refund — should I accept it?

It is not wise to accept a travel voucher instead of a refund. The reasons for this are:

  1. When you accept a travel voucher, you have to book another flight on the same airline. The airline also usually imposes a deadline for using the voucher.

  2. You might not be able to convert your voucher into a monetary refund if the airline declares bankruptcy; in that case, your money would be wasted.

    You might not be able to convert your voucher into a monetary refund if the airline declares bankruptcy; in that case, your money would be gone.

    => Have you already accepted a travel voucher from flyAmelia? You might still be able to convert it to a monetary refund.

Situations in which the airline is not responsible for the delay or cancellation are known as extraordinary circumstances. You might not be entitled to flight compensation if any of the following situations apply to your flyAmelia flight delay or cancellation:

  • Bad weather, such as thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.

  • A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry. However, a strike of a specific airline/its 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 unruly or ill passenger.

  • Delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.

(The list above is not exhaustive and it is meant to demonstrate a range of potential situations.)

Watch out: airlines may allege the occurrence of extraordinary circumstances while none existed. To avoid having to pay passengers for cancelled or delayed flights, they do this.
