If your Dan Air flight is delayed or cancelled, you have certain passenger rights and may be entitled to compensation under Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, known as EU261. The regulation protects passengers travelling with EU airlines or departing from the EU.
If you were flying with Dan Air from or to the UK, you may be eligible for compensation under the UK's version of EU261, 'The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers' Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019'. This regulation provides protection for UK air passengers similar to EU261 and was enacted after Brexit to ensure that UK passengers continue to have access to similar levels of protection.
Was your Dan Air flight delayed? If you arrived at your final destination at least 3 hours late, you are most likely entitled to flight compensation.
Was your Dan Air flight cancelled? If you did not take an alternative flight offered by the airline, you are entitled to a refund. Additionally, if the flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days before departure, you might be entitled to cancelled Dan Air flight compensation.
Regardless of the flight disruption or its cause, airlines must provide passengers with special assistance, known as the "right to care.” This includes: food and beverage vouchers, communication services, and, if needed, accommodations and transportation. You can claim those directly at the airline’s service desk at the airport, if the airline refuses to give you a voucher, just go and buy what you need — they will have to pay you back those expenses (as long as they are reasonable).
Warning: If your flight was delayed or cancelled because of an “extraordinary circumstance”, you won’t be entitled to flight compensation as the airline needs to be responsible for the flight disruption to provide compensation to passengers.
H2: I am travelling outside of the UK/EU with [Airline]. Am I still eligible for compensation?
Since Dan Air is a Romanian airline, your rights are protected under the EU261 regulation. If your flight departed from the UK, your rights will also be protected under British regulations.
See the table below for some examples:
|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|
If your Dan Air flight has been delayed, you may be entitled to compensation. The British and EU regulation states that if your flight follows certain conditions, you may be entitled to Dan Air flight delay compensation.
Your flight must be:
Delayed by more than three hour
Not caused by “extraordinary circumstances” outside of the airline’s control.
If your Dan Air flight has been cancelled, you may be eligible for compensation under EU261 and British regulations, as well as a full refund of your ticket price.
Dan Air flight cancelled? You may be entitled to compensation of up to £520 per passenger under certain conditions:
Your flight was cancelled within 14 days before the planned departure, AND,
The cancellation was not caused by “Extraordinary Circumstances” outside of the airline’s control.
If your Dan Air flight is cancelled, you can choose between an alternative flight or a full refund of the cost of your ticket. You can receive a refund of your ticket if:
Dan Air did not offer an alternative flight

To claim compensation and a refund for your cancelled Dan Air flight, you can use the services of Flight-Delayed.co.uk. Our legal experts can help you navigate the claims process, ensuring that you receive the maximum amount of compensation and a full refund.
You should be aware that depending on the EU and British air passenger rights laws, if you decide to cancel your Emerald Airlines flight, you might not be eligible for flight compensation. For further details on the airline's refund and compensation policy, please consult their website or get in touch with customer support.
If both flights were scheduled under the same reservation and the delay or cancellation satisfies the conditions stated above, you may be qualified for compensation and/or a ticket refund under EU and British air passengers rights legislation.
It is not recommended to accept the airline voucher offered for your Dan Air cancelled or delayed flight. Here are a few reasons why:
The voucher may have an expiration date or may be subject to certain restrictions and blackout dates, which may make it difficult for you to use.
By accepting the voucher, you may be waiving your right to claim compensation in cash, which may be a better option for you.
In the event that the airline goes bankrupt, you may no longer be able to use your unused voucher to get your money back.
Visit the airline's or the airport's website to check the status of your Dan Air flight. By entering your flight information, you will receive real-time notifications on any changes, delays, or cancellations, keeping you informed about the status of your voyage.
The amount of compensation you may receive is dependent on the length of your flight.
|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|
If you were bumped off a flight with Dan Air due to overbooking, you may be entitled to compensation and/or a full refund.
According to British and EU regulations, Dan Air must find alternative travel arrangements for the affected passengers. If the airline is unable to provide alternative travel arrangements, then they must offer you a full ticket refund.
If an alternative flight is provided but causes you to arrive at the destination 3 hours later than the original flight arrival time, you may be entitled to compensation in accordance with the flight delay compensation policies.
Flight disruptions can happen for many reasons, and some are beyond the control of the airline. In such cases, airlines are not legally required to provide compensation to passengers. These situations are referred to as "extraordinary circumstances."
Examples of extraordinary circumstances where Dan Air can reject your claim include:
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.
