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

An airline may rightfully decide not to compensate passengers in certain situations, even if a flight was cancelled or delayed by more than 3 hours. These scenarios — which we refer to as extraordinary circumstances — occur when a third party or unforeseeable event, rather than the airline, is to blame for the delay or cancellation.

The following list contains a few examples of extraordinary circumstances:

  • 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.

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

All flights to and from Malaga are governed by European Aviation Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004 (EU261). As a result, you have five years starting from the date of your flight to or from Malaga to file a compensation claim.

If you were flying to or from the United Kingdom, you have 6 years to submit a claim for a refund or compensation for your Malaga flight.
