Were you more than 3 hours late because of a CityJet flight delay? Then you could be eligible for up to £520 in CityJet flight compensation.
The amount of compensation depends on the distance of your flight.
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%.
Depending on the circumstances of the cancellation of your CityJet flight, you may be entitled to a ticket refund, compensation of up to £520, or both.
To be able to get flight compensation for your cancelled CityJet flight:
Your flight must have been cancelled fewer than 14 days before the scheduled departure date.
- The airline must have been the party responsible for the cancellation (see the “Extraordinary circumstances”)
If your flight was cancelled and you did not take the airline's alternative flight, you may be eligible for a CityJet ticket refund. You are also entitled to a ticket refund if you were not offered any alternative flight.
We generally advise against accepting a travel voucher instead of a monetary refund. This is because:
Accepting a travel voucher means you will have to fly with the same airline again. In addition, airlines usually assign a time limit for redeeming a voucher.
If the airline declares bankruptcy, you may be unable to convert your voucher into a cash refund — in other words, your money will be lost.
We call extraordinary circumstances situations where the airline is not the party at fault for the delay or cancellation of your flight. If any of the following conditions apply to your CityJet flight delay or cancellation, you may be ineligible for flight compensation (keep in mind that this list is non-exhaustive):
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.
Watch out! The airline may falsely claim that the delay or cancellation was due to an extraordinary circumstance!
