If your flight to or from Eindhoven Airport was delayed, you can claim flight compensation if:
the flight was delayed by more than 3 hours, AND,
the airline was the party at fault for the disruption — if the delay was caused by a third party or a force majeure, the airline is not obliged to pay! (Check the “Extraordinary Circumstances” section of this page to learn more.)
In case of a cancelled flight departing from Eindhoven Airport, you can be eligible for flight compensation of up to £520 and/or a full monetary refund of your flight!
If your flight was cancelled less than 14 days before the original departure date, and if the airline was the party at fault for the cancellation, you can claim flight compensation.
(Check the “Extraordinary Circumstances” section below to know more about when the airline can deny you compensation.)
In the case that you were not offered any alternative flight OR you were offered one but decided not to take it, you can ask for a full monetary refund of your flight ticket.
It’s very likely that the airline will offer you a travel voucher instead of a refund. We do not recommend accepting those — you would be forced to travel with the same airline again, and if the airline goes bankrupt, you could lose your money!
The claim amount depends on the distance of your flight.
For flights shorter than 1,500 km, the compensation is £220.
For flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km, the compensation is £350.
For flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU, the compensation is also £350.
For flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU, the compensation is £520 —but if your flight was delayed by fewer than 4 hours, the total amount might be reduced by 50%.

In some situations, the airline is rightfully able to deny your claim — even if you meet all the other flight compensation criteria. Those situations are called “extraordinary circumstances” and they refer to cases where the disruption was not caused by the airline itself but by a third party or force majeure.
Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are:
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.
The time limit to claim depends on the law in your country of departure, country of arrival, and the country where the airline is headquartered.
For example, if you had a flight with Air France from Eindhoven Airport to London Stansted, you could claim compensation under the:
Dutch law: 2 years
British law: 6 years
French law: 5 year
In the summer of 2022, crowds and long queues at Eindhoven airport affected thousands of passengers.
