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

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

What do the regulations say exactly?

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

TAROM flight cancellation — refund and compensation policies

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your TAROM flight's cancellation, you may be entitled to a ticket refund, compensation of up to £520, or both.

When can I file a claim for compensation for a cancelled TAROM flight?

You might be eligible for flight compensation if your flight was cancelled less than 14 days before the scheduled departure date.

You must also consider extraordinary circumstances, such as a natural disaster that prevents the flight from taking off — if these extraordinary circumstances apply to your flight, you may be ineligible for compensation.

When can I claim a refund for my cancelled TAROM flight?

If your flight was cancelled and you did not take an alternative flight offered by the airline, you are eligible for a TAROM ticket refund. If you were not offered an alternative flight, you can also benefit from a ticket refund.

7-14 days in advanceDeparts 2h+ earlier or arrived 4h+ laterYes
Fewer than 14 days in advanceNo alternative flight offeredYes + refund

TAROM 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. This is due to two major factors:

  1. When you accept a travel voucher, you are obligated to fly with the same airline again. Furthermore, the airline will usually set a time limit for redeeming the voucher.

  2. If the airline declares bankruptcy, you may be unable to convert your voucher into a cash refund, resulting in the loss of your money.

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

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


Although TAROM primarily operates within the European Union, the airline also flies to Africa and the Middle East.

TAROM is a Romanian airline, so its headquarters are in Europe. As a result, EU261 applies to all TAROM flight delays or cancellations.

However, the situation may be different if you were flying with a non-EU/non-UK airline. See the table below for more information.

Type of flightExampleCompensation
Flying with a British carrierTokyo to London with British AirwaysYes
Flying with a EU carrierAmsterdam to London with KLMYes
Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier from the UKLondon to Tokyo with Japan AirlinesYes
Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier to the UKTokyo to London with Japan AirlinesNo

Extraordinary circumstances — can TAROM deny me compensation?

We call extraordinary circumstances situations in which the airline is not the party at fault for a flight delay or a flight cancellation. If any of the following conditions apply to your TAROM flight delay or cancellation (this list is not exhaustive), you may be ineligible 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.

Airlines can claim that extraordinary circumstances occurred when they did not! They do so to avoid having to pay out flight compensation to passengers.
