If your flight from Dublin has been delayed or cancelled, you may be entitled to compensation.
The amount of compensation you can claim for a delayed or cancelled Dublin flight is determined by the distance of the flight, as follows:
|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 your [Dublin flight was delayed, you may be eligible for flight compensation under the EU regulations. To qualify for Dublin delayed flight compensation:
Your Dublin flight must have arrived more than 3 hours later to your destination
Additionally, the responsibility for the delay must lie with the airline, meaning it must be due to reasons within the airline's control, such as technical issues or crew problems. Extraordinary circumstances like extreme weather or air traffic control restrictions may exempt the airline from providing compensation.
The compensation amount varies depending on the flight distance: the longer your flight, the higher the compensation.
Dublin flights cancelled? You may be entitled to compensation and a refund of your ticket cost. Passengers whose flights are cancelled have the right to choose between a refund or a suitable re-routing to their final destination.
You may be able to claim compensation for a cancelled Dublin flight if:
The cancellation has been announced within 14 days before the scheduled departure, AND,
The flight has been cancelled by the airline and not due to extraordinary circumstances outside of the airline's control.
|Cancellation notice||Alternative flight||Compensation|
|Fewer than 7 days in advance||Departs 1h+ earlier or arrived 2h+ later||Yes|
|7-14 days in advance||Departs 2h+ earlier or arrived 4h+ later||Yes|
|Fewer than 14 days in advance||No alternative flight offered||Yes + refund|
If your Dublin flights have been cancelled, you may also be entitled to a ticket refund. If the flight was cancelled by the airline and not due to extraordinary circumstances, passengers have the right to choose between a refund or an alternative flight.
In order to get a full refund, you need to either:
Not been provided with an alternative flight from the airline, OR,
You choose not to take the alternative flight provided by the airline.
You should be aware that if you accept an alternative flight, you may not be entitled to compensation for the original cancellation. However, if the alternative flight arrives at your destination more than three hours late, you may be entitled to compensation for the delay.
In some cases, airlines may offer you a voucher or other form of compensation instead of a ticket refund or alternative flight. While this may seem like a good deal, we advise you not to accept vouchers due to a few reasons.
Vouchers are often subject to restrictions and limitations, such as expiry dates, blackout dates, or limited availability. This may make it difficult for you to use the voucher or may limit their options for alternative flights.
Vouchers may not provide you with the same level of financial protection as a ticket refund. If the airline were to go bankrupt or cease operations, you may not be able to recover your losses.
It's important for you to carefully consider any offers made by the airline and to seek advice from a legal expert if you’re unsure about your rights. Flight-Delayed.co.uk can provide guidance and assistance for you if your Dublin flights have been cancelled.
|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|
In some cases, airlines may deny compensation claims if the delay or cancellation was caused by “extraordinary circumstances”.
Examples of such circumstances are listed as follows:
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.
