Your passenger rights in the event of a delayed or cancelled Swiftair flight

All Swiftair flights are covered under the European and British air passenger rights regulations. Under certain conditions, you may be entitled to compensation of up to £520 per passenger and a full refund of the ticket price for your Swiftair cancelled flight.

 What do the regulations say exactly?

  • Was your Swiftair flight delayed? If you arrived at your final destination at least 3 hours behind schedule, then you are likely to be entitled to compensation of up to £520 per passenger.

  • Was your Swiftair flight cancelled? If you did not take an alternative flight offered by the airline, you can claim a full monetary refund. Plus, if the Swiftair flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days prior to departure, you might also be entitled to cancelled Swiftair flight compensation.

  • Regardless of why your flight is disrupted, airlines are required to provide special assistance to passengers, known as the "right to care." This assistance includes things like food and drinks vouchers, communication services, and, if needed, help with accommodations and transportation. If the airline's service desk is not providing you with these, you can buy the necessary items yourself, and Swiftair will have to reimburse you for reasonable expenses.

Important Note: If your flight experienced delays or cancellations due to "extraordinary circumstances," you may not be eligible for flight compensation, as the airline must bear responsibility for the flight disruption in order to provide compensation and refund to affected passengers.

Extraordinary circumstances — when can Swiftair deny me compensation?

Swiftair may deny flight compensation if the delay or cancellation was caused by a third party or force majeure. These are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.

Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are as follows:

  • 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.

Please keep in mind that airlines sometimes claim that an extraordinary circumstance occurred, even if it was not the case. Carriers do this to try to avoid paying passengers their well-deserved compensation.
