Extraordinary circumstances — when can Sun Express deny me compensation?

Sun Express has the right to refuse compensation if the delay or cancellation was caused by a third party or by force majeure. These are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.

The following are 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.

However, keep in mind that airlines sometimes claim that an extraordinary circumstance happened, even if that was not the case. They do it to avoid paying out compensation.
