If the airline's error caused your GullivAir flight to be delayed by more than 3 hours, you may be entitled to up to £520 per person in travel compensation.
Claim online with Flight-Delayed.co.uk! If you qualify for GullivAir delayed flight compensation, our experts will manage the whole claim process for you on a "no win, no fee" basis.
It is all contingent on the events surrounding your GullivAir trip's cancellation. Depending on the circumstances, you could be entitled to a GullivAir refund, flight compensation of up to £520, or perhaps both!
You can be entitled to flight compensation if a GullivAir flight is cancelled and the cancellation was announced less than 14 days before the flight's intended departure.
Take note that GullivAir’s actions must have caused the cancellation in order for you to be eligible for flight compensation. More information is provided in the "Extraordinary Circumstances'' section of this page.
You can always claim a refund if a GullivAir flight is cancelled as long as you chose not to take the airline's alternative provided flight. If the airline failed to make an effort to arrange another flight for you, you may also ask for a refund.
|Cancellation notice||Alternative flight||Compensation|
|Fewer than 7 days in advance||Departs 1h+ earlier or arrived 2h+ later||Yes|
|7-14 days in advance||Departs 2h+ earlier or arrived 4h+ later||Yes|
|Fewer than 14 days in advance||No alternative flight offered||Yes + refund|
The distance of the flight determines the amount of the compensation:
|Distance of your flight||Compensation|
|Flights shorter than 1,500 km||Get £220 per passenger|
|Flight between 1,500 and 3,500 km||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU||Get £520 per passenger|
You absolutely can. Due to the fact that the company's headquarters are in Sofia, Bulgaria, the EU flight compensation regulations apply to every flight operated by GullivAir. Even if you were on a GullivAir trip to or from, let's say, the Maldives, you are still qualified to file a claim for compensation for a flight disruption.
Conditions, however, may change if your flight is operated by a non-EU carrier, as shown in the table below.
|Type of flight||Example||Compensation|
|Flying with a British carrier||Tokyo to London with British Airways||Yes|
|Flying with a EU carrier||Amsterdam to London with KLM||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier from the UK||London to Tokyo with Japan Airlines||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier to the UK||Tokyo to London with Japan Airlines||No|
Compensation might not be granted when a delay or cancellation wasn't GullivAir's fault but rather a third party or an unexpected circumstance. Under such conditions, which we refer to as extraordinary circumstances, the airline is not obligated to provide compensation.
Some of the most frequent extraordinary circumstances are listed below:
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.
Airlines could claim that extraordinary circumstances transpired even if that wasn't the case. In an effort to avoid having to pay compensation, airlines regularly use this tactic.
To make a claim for compensation, you have 3 years under Bulgarian law. As a result, you normally have up to 3 years to file a claim if you utilise GullivAir to fly to or from Sofia.
Since the timeframe for filing a claim changes depending on your flight route, it may be different if you were flying out of the UK, where you had 6 years to do so.
Passengers who submit a claim with Flight-Delayed.co.uk for flight compensation or a refund usually receive their money within a few weeks or months.
However, if the airline is unresponsive and/or the claim needs to be filed in court, this period may be extended by a few additional months or perhaps a few years.
Regardless of how long the claim process takes, the Flight-Delayed.co.uk team will keep you up to date on any essential information about your case and be able to address any questions you may have.
You will just need a short amount of time to complete your details on our website and upload any required paperwork. The following step will be for our legal team to review and assess your claim, create the necessary documentation, contact the airline, and, if necessary, file a lawsuit on your behalf. No win, no fee = no risks for you.
