How do I know if my flight is delayed or cancelled?

If you're planning to take a flight to Egypt, it's important to stay informed about any changes or updates to your flight schedule. Here are a few ways to find out if your flight is delayed or cancelled:

  • Check your airline's website

  • Check the departure and arrival airports’ website

  • Use a flight tracking app: E.g. FlightAware and FlightRadar24.

  • Sign up for notifications from your airline

By checking the status of your flights, you can avoid unnecessary stress and make any necessary adjustments to your travel plans.

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

Since Egypt is not a part of Europe, you will only qualify for compensation if your flight commenced in Europe and/or was provided by a European airline. Only if your flight was delayed by a minimum of three hours upon arrival or if the Egypt flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days before departure will you be eligible for compensation for a cancelled or delayed flight. It's important to remember that the airline will additionally need to be accountable for the flight disruption.

The amount of compensation you may be entitled to depend on the distance of your flight.

Read below for more information:

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

The airline has to offer you additional assistance if your flight is delayed or cancelled. Vouchers for food and drink, commute, and, if required, hotel are included in this. You can still make the required purchases and retain the receipts if the airline doesn't provide you with vouchers; they must still provide you with a refund.

Flight compensation for a delayed flight from/to Egypt — check if you're eligible now!

If your Egypt flight has been delayed, you may be eligible for flight compensation of up to £520 per passenger under the EU regulations. However, a few conditions apply. However, as Egypt is not part of Europe, you can only claim flight compensation for flights leaving from a European airport and/or operated by a European airline.

Your Egypt delayed flight must follow both of the following conditions to be able to claim compensation:

  • The length of the delay: your Egypt flight was delayed for at least 3 hours

  • The responsibility of the airline: you can only claim Egypt flight compensation if the flight delay is caused by the airline. If the flight is delayed due to “Extraordinary Circumstances” that are out of the airline’s control, such as severe weather, you may not be entitled to compensation.

The compensation amount is dependent on the flight distance: longer flights equal more compensation.

Cancelled flight from Egypt — Compensation and refund policies

If your flight to Egypt has been cancelled, you may be entitled to compensation and/or a refund of your ticket.

Claim flight compensation for your cancelled flight from Egypt

According to British and EU regulations, you are entitled to compensation for a cancelled flight if you meet both of the following criteria.

  1. Your flight was cancelled within 14 days of the scheduled flight departure date, AND,

  2. Your flight cancellation was the fault of the airline.

Ask for the refund of your cancelled flight from Egypt

You are also entitled to a complete ticket refund if your Egypt flight is cancelled. The refund is not the same thing as the compensation. Passengers are offered Egypt flight compensation when an airline cancels a flight and is at fault. Any passenger, however, who eventually decides not to book a flight with the airline is eligible for the refund. If your flight to Egypt is cancelled, you may be entitled to a full ticket refund for your flight. You are allowed to do so if:

  • The airline did not offer an alternative flight.

  • You rejected the alternative flight being offered to you by the airline.

Were you offered a voucher for your cancelled flight from Egypt? Here's what you should know.

Sometimes airlines may offer passengers a voucher for future travel instead of a refund for a cancelled flight to Egypt. While this may seem like a good deal, it is important to be aware of the following:

  • If you accept a voucher, you will no longer be entitled to compensation for the cancelled flight.

  • Vouchers often have strict terms and conditions, such as expiration dates, blackout periods, and limited availability.

  • If the airline goes bankrupt or ceases operations before you can use the voucher, you may lose the value entirely.

Before accepting a voucher, make sure to carefully read and understand the terms and conditions, and consider whether a refund may be a better option for you.

Flight delayed or cancelled to Egypt - am I also entitled to flight compensation?

If your flight departing from Egypt is delayed or cancelled, you may also be entitled to flight compensation.

The British and EU regulations apply to flights that either:

  • Departs from a UK/EU airport with any flight carrier, OR,

  • Departs from a non-UK/EU airport and arrives at a UK/EU airport if the operating airline is based in the UK/EU.

Type of flightExampleCompensation
Flying with a British carrierTokyo to London with British AirwaysYes
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

Extraordinary circumstances disrupted my Egypt flight — can the airline really deny my claim?

In certain circumstances, airlines may claim that the delay or cancellation of a flight was due to "extraordinary circumstances" that were beyond their control.

Examples of such circumstances 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.

However, it is important to note that airlines sometimes use this defence inappropriately, and passengers may still be entitled to compensation. If you believe that the delay or cancellation was not caused by extraordinary circumstances, you can seek assistance from legal professionals through Flight-Delayed.co.uk.

Don't worry; you are not required to investigate the cause of the delayed or cancelled Egypt flight. To ensure that you receive your Egypt flight compensation, let our professionals compare internal and external aviation data on your behalf!

How long can I claim for my delayed or cancelled flight from Egypt?

The amount of time you have to make a claim for a delayed or cancelled flight to Egypt depends on the country where the airline is based, and the country of your itinerary. For example, if you are flying from Cairo to Amsterdam with Lufthansa, you will have 2 years based on Dutch law, but 3 years based on German law since Lufthansa is a German airline.

In most cases, the time limit is 1 to 3 years from the date of the flight. However, in the UK, you have up to 6 years to claim compensation.

If you are uncertain about whether you are still within the time frame to apply for your compensation, you can check your flight right now using our claim calculator.

How long before I receive my flight compensation for my Egypt flight?

After successfully submitting your claim with Flight-Delayed.co.uk, the compensation process can take several weeks to a few months. The amount of time it takes to receive compensation varies depending on several factors, such as the complexity of the case and the airline's response time.

If the case is complicated or when the airline is taking a long time to respond, it can take up to a few years to resolve a case. However, the legal experts at Flight-Delayed.co.uk will make sure that you are kept up-to-date throughout your claim process.
