Bangalore is not a part of Europe, hence only flights that originated in Europe or were run by European airlines are eligible for compensation for delays or cancellations on Bangalore flights. Only flights that experienced delays of at least 3 hours or cancellations that occurred within 14 days of the scheduled departure are eligible for compensation. Keep in mind that the airline must be held responsible for the disruption as well.
You might be entitled to flight compensation if your Bangalore flight was delayed by 3 hours or more or cancelled less than 14 days prior to departure. The distance of your flight determines the amount of flight compensation computed per passenger.
|Distance of your flight||Compensation|
|Flights shorter than 1,500 km||Get £220 per passenger|
|Flight between 1,500 and 3,500 km||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU||Get £520 per passenger|
Keep in mind that the airline owes you specific assistance if your flight is delayed or cancelled. This includes any important meals, beverages, communications , transportation, and accommodation: all in the form of vouchers. You can directly redeem these vouchers at the airline's service counter in the airport. If the airline doesn't provide vouchers, you can still make the necessary purchases and keep your receipts; they are still in charge of paying you back.
According to EU legislation, you can be eligible for flight compensation if your Bangalore flight was delayed. If your flight from Europe to Bangalore was delayed, you may be eligible for flight compensation of up to £520 per passenger, regardless of the airline you were flying with. Be careful; you can only receive flight compensation for flights departing from European airports and/or operated by European airlines because Bangalore is not a part of Europe.
You must fulfil the following criteria to qualify for Bangalore delayed flight compensation:
The length of the delay: your Bangalore flight arrived more than 3 hours later than scheduled
The responsibility of the airline: you can only claim Bangalore flight compensation if the airline was to blame for the delay. (More details further down the page; the airline is not obliged to compensate passengers for delays brought on by "extraordinary circumstances").
The length of your flight determines the compensation amount; the longer your flight, the bigger the compensation.
If your Bangalore flight was cancelled, you might be eligible for a ticket refund, flight compensation of up to £520 per passenger, or sometimes both. Continue reading for further information on when you might qualify for any of them!
You might receive up to £520 in flight compensation per passenger if your Bangalore flight was cancelled. However, your situation must adhere to the following specifications:
Less than 14 days before departure, your Bangalore flight was cancelled, AND,
The airline was responsible for the cancellation (see the "Extraordinary Circumstances" section for more information on when airlines can refuse to compensate passengers.)
|Cancellation notice||Alternative flight||Compensation|
|Fewer than 7 days in advance||Departs 1h+ earlier or arrived 2h+ later||Yes|
|7-14 days in advance||Departs 2h+ earlier or arrived 4h+ later||Yes|
|Fewer than 14 days in advance||No alternative flight offered||Yes + refund|
However, if an industrial action—such as a strike or wildfire—caused the Bangalore flight to be cancelled, you cannot file a claim for compensation. These acts count as “extraordinary circumstances”.
In addition, if your Bangalore flight is cancelled, you can be qualified for a full ticket refund. Compensation differs from this. In the event that a Bangalore flight is cancelled and the airline is at fault, it must make it up to the passengers by offering them compensation. However, each passenger is qualified for a refund if they ultimately decide not to book a flight with the airline. If your flight to Bangalore was cancelled, request a full refund if you were able to prove that:
No alternate flight was offered to you by the airline, OR
You were given the option to take another flight by the airline, but you declined.
When a flight is cancelled or delayed, airlines can issue travel vouchers instead of cash refunds or cancellations. Here are some of the reasons we firmly suggest avoiding accepting them:
You must book a new flight with the same airline using the travel voucher. Furthermore, the airline may set a time limit for redeeming the voucher.
You may have significant issues getting your money back if the airline files for bankruptcy.
Yes, in certain situations. Since Bangalore is not in Europe, European laws (EU261) only apply to flights that originate in the EU and/or are operated by European airlines.
Flight compensation is not possible if you flew from Bangalore on a non-EU airline, according to European legislation. The table below has more details.
|Type of flight||Example||Compensation|
|Flying with a British carrier||Tokyo to London with British Airways||Yes|
|Flying with a EU carrier||Amsterdam to London with KLM||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier from the UK||London to Tokyo with Japan Airlines||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier to the UK||Tokyo to London with Japan Airlines||No|
The airline might decline to grant you compensation even if your flight was cancelled or delayed for longer than 3 hours. When a third party or unforeseen incident, as opposed to the airline, is to blame for the delay or cancellation, these situations, also known as extraordinary circumstances, are used to refuse passengers flight compensation.
Here are a few instances of 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.
The country from which you are flying decides this.
One of the longest time frames in Europe is available in the UK, where you can file a claim for flight compensation up to 6 years following your flight. The exception is Scotland, where you have 5 years to submit your claim.
Depending on how proactive the airline is, passengers who submit claims through Flight-Delayed.co.uk tend to receive compensation or refund within a few weeks or months.
The claim procedure could take many months to several years, depending on whether legal action is necessary (since the airline has been unresponsive or rejected our initial request).
Whatever the length of the claim, our claim professionals will keep you informed of any changes and be ready to answer any questions you may have!
A claims specialist will be assigned to your case once your claim is submitted to Flight-Delayed.co.uk. After that, they will analyse your claim, compile all relevant paperwork, get in touch with the airline, and, if necessary, launch a lawsuit to defend your rights!
To submit a claim for flight compensation with Flight-Delayed.co.uk, you must first provide us specifics about what happened on the flight. Don't forget to keep a copy of your boarding pass, passport, ticket number, and receipts for any fees incurred as a result of a delay or cancellation.

The capital of India's southern Karnataka state is Bengaluru (also known as Bangalore). Since it serves as the nation's top exporter of information technology (IT), the capital is occasionally referred to as the "Silicon Valley of India''. Additionally, Bangalore enjoys a pleasant climate all year round due to its high elevation and moderate tropical savannah environment, which has three seasons (summer, monsoon, and winter). This allows visitors to Bangalore to visit this beautiful city at any time of year.
Bangalore's primary international airport, Kempegowda International Airport, also provides domestic aircraft services. It is situated about 30 kilometres north of the city, close to the suburb of Devanahalli, and spans 4,000 acres. Bengaluru International Airport Limited, a public-private partnership, is its owner and operator.
