Frequently Asked Questions – Delays and cancellations at Frankfurt Airport

1. Delays and cancellations at Frankfurt Airport — can the airline deny my claim?

Unfortunately, there are some situations when the airline will not be able to compensate you for your delayed or cancelled flight. When a delay or cancellation is brought on by a third party or an unforeseeable event that is not within the airline's control, these are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.

Examples of some of the circumstances are 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.

How much time do I have to submit my flight compensation claim?

The time frame for filing a claim is governed by the laws of your country of origin, country of destination, and country where the airline has its headquarters.

For instance, if you took an Air France flight from Frankfurt Airport to London Stansted, you may be eligible for compensation under the following:

  • French law: 5 years

  • German law: 3 years

  • British law: 6 years
