If your Israir flight is cancelled, you may be eligible for compensation of up to £520, a ticket refund, or a combination of both, contingent on the particular circumstances.
You can claim compensation if your Israir flight was canceled within 14 days before the initially scheduled departure date. It's essential to note that Israir must be at fault for the cancellation for you to be eligible for compensation. Additional information can be found in the "Extraordinary Circumstances" section of this article.
If an Israir flight is cancelled, you have the entitlement to a refund if you opt not to accept the airline's substitute flight. Moreover, you can request a refund if Israir doesn't provide you with any alternative flight choice at all.
|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 amount of compensation depends on the distance of your flight:
|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|
Please note that Israir, being an Israeli airline, makes only flights departing from Europe eligible for flight compensation under EU regulations. More information on 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|

When a delay or cancellation is the result of a third party or a force majeure event, Israir has the discretion to decline compensation, and these situations are typically known as 'extraordinary circumstances.'
Some of the most commonly encountered extraordinary circumstances include:
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.
Keep in mind, airlines may sometimes wrongly claim extraordinary circumstances to avoid compensation. Our legal experts are here to assist you. Submitting a claim with Flight-Delayed.co.uk is quick and easy. We operate on a 'no win, no fee' basis, so there's no financial risk for you
When your flight includes travel to or from the United Kingdom, you have up to 6 years to file a compensation and refund claim, with a 5-year exception for Scotland. For flights not involving the United Kingdom in their route, please be mindful that distinct local regulations may apply in each country.
Passengers who use Flight-Delayed.co.uk to claim flight compensation or a refund usually receive their money back within a few weeks or months.
If the airline does not respond, or if the claim has to be taken to court, the waiting period could potentially extend, ranging from several more months to, in some cases, a few years.
