To be eligible for cancelled flight compensation, your Finnair flight must have been cancelled fewer than 14 days prior to the original departure date.
The airline may rightfully deny you compensation in some cases. See the "Extraordinary Circumstances" section of this article for more information on such situations.

The amount of compensation 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%.
Finnair can deny flight compensation if the delay or cancellation was caused by a third party or force majeure. These situations are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.
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.
Watch out though! Airlines can sometimes claim that an extraordinary circumstance occurred, even if this was not the case. They are hoping to avoid having to pay passengers their well-deserved flight compensation.
If you were flying from the UK, you have 6 years to claim compensation and refund. The exception is Scotland, where you have 5 years to claim.
Depending on the flight route, the time limit to submit a claim might vary as it depends on: the law of the country of departure, the law of the country of arrival, as well as the law of the country where the airline is headquartered.
