Flight Cancellation. What are my rights when my flight has been cancelled?

 

We all consider a flight’s cancellation a big complication. Especially when this disrupts your business or holiday plans. There is nothing worse while travelling than finding out that you’re going to have to spend 2 days fewer in the tropical island you were travelling to. Or, all of the sudden, hearing that you will have to cram 3 important meeting into 1 working day. All because your flight was cancelled.

 

Do not despair however, you may be entitled to EUR 250, 400 or 600 in compensation for your flight’s cancellation.

 

How is that possible? Well your rights as an air passenger are protected by Regulation EC 261/2004. That means a simple thing; if your flight was cancelled you may be entitled to financial compensation. Great news! We know.

 

Flight cancellation, how do I claim my compensation?

 

Claiming compensation can become a tad intricate. Very often, airlines will almost automatically reject any claim for compensation they receive. It doesn’t really matter if they have the right to do so or not. We have some tips for you if you wish to claim the compensation you are entitled to.

 

Claim my compensation

 

What do I need to claim compensation for a flight’s cancellation

 

Keep a copy of your travel documents, they will come in handy when you, or Flight-Delayed.co.uk if you wish, start the whole process. Furthermore, you will need to be able to prove that you held a reservation to fly on board the cancelled flight. So remember to keep a copy of the following documents:

 

  • Passport or ID used to travel
  • E-ticket or booking confirmation
  • Boarding pass

 

When is my flight’s cancellation covered by European law?

 

Your flight is covered by European law if:

 

  • You were departing from any airport inside the European Union
  • You were arriving at any airport inside the European Union whilst flying with a European carrier

 

Simple enough. But if you’re still not certain if you can claim for your disruption, please do utilise our free claim calculator and we will tell you, almost immediately, if we believe that you are entitled to compensation.

 

I can claim compensation for my flight’s cancellation, how much money do I get now?

 

As established by the regulation, the distance covered by your flight's route will determine the amount that you’ll receive as compensation for your cancelled flight. The following amounts are stipulated in Regulation EC 261/2004 :

 

  • For all flights of 1,500 kilometres or less, EUR 250
  • For all intra-Community flights of more than 1,500 kilometres and for all other flights between 1,500 and 3,500 kilometres, EUR 400
  • For all other flights (routes covering a distance greater than 3,500 kilometres) you'll be entitled to receive EUR 600*

 

*In this case, if you’ve arrived at your final destination with a total delay greater than 3 hours but lesser than 4 hours, the airline will be able to apply a 50% reduction to the total amount established in the regulation.

 

Why is the compensation for cancelled flights in euros and not in pounds?

 

Regulation EC 261/2004 establishes the amounts in euros. Therefore, when it comes to compensation for cancelled flights, the airlines will also pay the claims in euros. Here at Flight-Delayed.co.uk we will send you your compensation in GBP (£) when we've successfully claimed it.

 

Want to know if your delay, cancellation, re-routing or denied boarding entitles you to compensation? Please go to our 'claim calculator'. Fill in your flight number and the date of your flight and we will tell you almost immediately if and how much money you can claim from the airline.

 

Every year, about 500 million people suffer from flight delays and cancellations and 30 million of them have the right to get compensation. Money that up until now remained with the airlines, amounting to almost three billion euros every single year!
