How much compensation can I get for a delayed or cancelled Curacao flight? 

As Curacao is not part of Europe, you are only eligible for Curacao delayed or cancelled flight compensation if your flight departed from Europe and/or was with a European airline. You can only get delayed or cancelled flight compensation if your flight was delayed by over 3 hours upon arrival or if the cancellation of your Curacao flight was announced fewer than 14 days before departure. Note that the airline must also be responsible for the flight disruption.

If you are eligible for compensation under British and European regulations, the amount you can claim depends on the distance of your flight. The table below shows the compensation amounts for delayed or cancelled flights to and from Curacao:

Distance of your flightCompensation
Flights shorter than 1,500 kmGet £220 per passenger
Flight between 1,500 and 3,500 kmGet £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

Take note that if your flight is delayed or cancelled, the airline owes you special assistance. This assistance entails food and beverage vouchers, communication, transportation and, if necessary, hotels. You can claim those vouchers directly at the airline’s service desk at the airport. If the airline doesn’t provide you with vouchers, you can buy what you need and hold on to the receipts — the airline will have to reimburse you for these costs.

Cancelled flight from Curacao — Compensation and refund policies

If your flight to Curacao was cancelled, you may be entitled to compensation or a refund of your ticket.

Claim flight compensation for your cancelled flight from Curacao

Under British and EU regulations, you are entitled to compensation if the airline cancelled your flight:

  • Less than 14 days before the scheduled departure date, AND,

  • Due to reasons within the airline’s control.

If the cancellation was due to “extraordinary circumstances” outside of the airline’s control, you may not be entitled to compensation and/or refund.

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

Unfortunately, you cannot file a claim for compensation for a cancelled Curacao flight if the reason for the cancellation was an industrial action like a strike or riot (“extraordinary circumstances”). 

Ask for the refund of your flight from Curacao

In the event that your Curacao flight is cancelled, you can also receive a full ticket refund. This is separate to compensation. When they are at fault for the cancellation and must compensate the passengers, airlines offer Curacao flight compensation to the passengers in the case of a cancelled flight. All customers, however, are eligible for the refund as long if they ultimately opt to not fly with the airline.

On top of the compensation, you may also be entitled to a refund or an alternative flight. You are entitled to a refund when:

  • The airline didn’t offer an alternative option, OR,

  • You rejected the alternative flight provided by the airline.

Were you offered a voucher for your cancelled flight from Curacao? Here’s what you should do.

Our advice is to not accept the voucher due to the following reasons. Accepting a voucher means waiving your right to the compensation and refund you are entitled to. The voucher may come with certain restrictions or limitations, such as a limited validity period or restrictions on the routes you can take. Moreover, if the airline goes bankrupt, you may not be able to get a cash refund later on.

Flight delayed or cancelled to Curacao, am I also entitled to flight compensation?

If your flight to Curacao was delayed or cancelled, you may be entitled to compensation depending on certain factors. The good news is that if your flight departed from a European airport or was operated by a European airline, you are protected by British and European (EU261) regulations for the right to compensation and/or a refund.

However, if your flight departed from a non-European airport and was operated by a non-European airline, you may not be eligible for compensation under the regulations. See the table below for more details:

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: the airline can deny your claim

Under certain circumstances, airlines are not obligated to pay compensation for delayed or cancelled flights. These circumstances are called "extraordinary circumstances" and may include events such as:

  • 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.

If you believe that your flight was delayed or cancelled due to reasons that are within the airline's control, you may be entitled to compensation. You can check your eligibility and file a claim with our Claim Calculator.
