I was flying with Iberia to a non-EU country. Can I still claim compensation?

Yes. Iberia’s headquarters are in Madrid, Spain and therefore the EU flight compensation rules apply to it. Even if you are flying with Iberia to the United States or to Asia, you can claim compensation for a disrupted flight.

However, as you can see in the table below, the situation might be different in the event that your flight is operated by a non-EU airline.

Extraordinary circumstances — can Iberia deny me compensation?

Iberia can deny compensation when the delay or the cancellation was not their fault but was rather caused by a third party or force majeure. We call such situations 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.
