You could be entitled to flight compensation if:
Your flight to or from Gran Canaria Airport was delayed by more than 3 hours,
The airline was at fault for the interruption (the airline won't provide you travel compensation if an "extraordinary circumstance" or a third party was responsible for the delay — further details can be found further down the page).
If your flight to or from Gran Canaria Airport was cancelled, you might be entitled to receive both a full monetary refund of your ticket as well as flight compensation of up to £520!
When your flight to or from Gran Canaria Airport is cancelled, you must meet the following requirements to be eligible for flight compensation:
The flight was cancelled less than 14 days before the scheduled departure date.
The cancellation must be the fault of the airline. Refer to the part of this page under "Extraordinary Circumstances" to understand when the airline may reject your claim.
If you were not given the option of taking an alternate flight or if you were given one but chose not to take it, you may request a refund for your ticket.
A word of advice: Do not accept airline travel vouchers as a form of refund. You would have to use the same airline again in the future and if the airline goes bankrupt, you might lose your money.
The amount of your claim depends on the distance flown. The claim amount is per passenger.

In some cases, the airline cannot be forced to offer you any compensation for your delayed or cancelled flights. Extraordinary circumstances can occur when there is a delay or cancellation caused by something outside of the airline's control.
Here is a list of some examples of such situations:
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 required to submit a claim depends on the specific regulations in place in the country of departure, the country of arrival, and the country where the airline is based.
For example, if you had a flight from Gran Canaria Airport to Munich operated by Transavia, you would be eligible to claim under the:
Spanish law: 5 years
German law: 3 years
Dutch law: 2 years
