A cancelled flight is always a bit more frustrating… In most cases you need to find another way to reach your final destination or worse, cancel your entire trip. But sometimes the higher the inconvenience, the more money you can get! Are you wondering how to get money for a cancelled flight? Continue reading!

How do I know if I can get money for a cancelled flight?

Well, let’s do the little exercise again, if you reply “yes” to all the below questions, you can get money for your cancelled flight:

  1. Was the cancellation of your flight announced less than 14 days before departure?

  2. Was the airline responsible for the cancellation (technical problem with the plane, airline strike…)?

  3. Was your flight departing from Europe OR onboard a European airline?

Did you reply “yes” to all the above? Congratulations you can claim flight compensation up to £520 and get money for your cancelled flight!

Start your claim now before it is too late! In Europe, depending on the country, you can only ask money for your delayed or cancelled flight in between 6 months and 6 years after your flight happened.



But it doesn’t stop here… We told you you’d get money for your flight! You could also get the full refund of your flight, in addition to the compensation. But this is only true if you did not fly with the airline in the end, meaning that either the airline offered you another flight that you declined, or that the airline did not offer you another flight at all.



How much money can I get for my flight?

This is easy, this depends on the distance of your flight. The further the destination, the higher the compensation! You can find the details in the table below.

  • For flights shorter than 1,500 km, the compensation is £220.

  • For flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km, the compensation is £350.

  • For flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU, the compensation is also £350.

  • For flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU, the compensation is £520 —but if your flight was delayed by fewer than 4 hours, the total amount might be reduced by 50%.

How does Flight-Delayed.co.uk work?

  • We start by analysing your claim, making sure we have all the best assets to claim compensation.

  • Then we get in touch with the airline, in most cases they reply quickly and accept to pay the rightful compensation to passengers.

  • If this is not the case, then we need to dive into internal and external aviation data to build up your case and make sure the airline respects their duty to compensate you for your delayed or cancelled flight.

  • We even go to court on your behalf if needed but again, you don’t have to lift a finger, we do everything for you, up until we get your money for the flight.

  • And if we don’t manage to get your compensation, which is very rare — we won 98% of all court cases against airlines — we don’t charge you anything — our service is completely based on the “no win, no fee” policy.
