Cancelled French Bee flight — refund and compensation rules

In the event of a cancelled French Bee flight, you may be entitled to a ticket refund, compensation of up to £520, or both, depending on the circumstances surrounding the cancellation!

When can I claim flight compensation for a cancelled French Bee flight?

To claim flight compensation for a cancelled French Bee flight, you need to make sure to meet both of the following criteria:

  • Your flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days before the scheduled departure date


  • The airline was responsible for the cancellation. More details on the extraordinary circumstances (situations where the airline is not responsible for the cancellation) can be found below.

When can I claim a refund for my cancelled French Bee flight?

If your flight was cancelled and you did not take the alternative flight offered by the airline, you may be entitled to a refund from French Bee. Note that if the airline does not offer you any alternative flight at all, you are also entitled to a ticket refund.

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

Accepting a travel voucher in lieu of a refund is not recommended. Here is why:

  1. When you accept a travel voucher, you must fly with the same airline again. Furthermore, the airline set a time limit for redeeming the voucher.

  2. If the airline declares bankruptcy, you may be unable to change your voucher into a monetary refund = your money will be lost.

=> Have you already accepted a French Bee travel voucher? You might be able to change it into a monetary refund.

Don't let airlines get away without compensation!

French Bee overbooked flight — get a refund, compensation and extra care

Overbooking is common amongst airlines. They frequently sell more tickets than there are seats on the plane. The first passengers to check in will get their seats and if there aren't enough volunteers to give up their reservations, passengers may be denied boarding against their will.

You certainly can. French Bee is a French airline departing from Paris Orly. As a result, the European air passenger rights regulation EU261 applies to all French Bee flights that are delayed or cancelled.

However, if you were flying with a non-EU/non-UK airline, the situation might be different. Details can be found in the table below.

Extraordinary circumstances — can French Bee deny me compensation?

Extraordinary circumstances are situations in which the airline is not to be blamed for the delay or cancellation. If any of the following conditions apply to your French Bee flight delay or cancellation, you may not be eligible for flight 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.

(The above list is non-exhaustive.)

Be aware: airlines can claim that extraordinary circumstances occurred when it was not the case! They do so to avoid having to compensate passengers for disrupted flights.
