If your flight to or from Liege Airport was delayed, and the airline is at fault, you may be entitled to claim flight compensation. Provided that:
The delay of the flight was more than 3 hours, AND,
The airline is to blame for the disruption. The airline is not required to provide flight compensation if a third party or "extraordinary circumstance" was at fault.
Was your flight from Liege Airport cancelled? You may be eligible for flight compensation of up to £520, a complete monetary refund of your ticket, or both.
What needs to happen so that you are eligible for compensation?
The cancellation must have been the fault of the airline, AND,
Must have taken place within 14 days prior to the scheduled departure date
Did the airline offer you an alternative flight? Do not worry — you may still be entitled to a full refund of your flight ticket if you choose not to take it.
We recommended turning down a travel voucher from the airline, as it forces you to travel with the airline again. You might also risk losing your money if the airline goes out of business.
The amount of reimbursement is based on the distance of your flight.
(Be mindful of the fact that the claim amount applies to each passenger!)
|Distance of your flight||Compensation|

Unfortunately, compensations do not apply to all cases, there are specific instances which do not allow you to claim compensation for a delayed or cancelled flight at Liege airport. On condition that a third party or an unexpected event beyond the control of the airline occurs, you will not be entitled to compensation. Such events are labelled as “extraordinary circumstances”, you can find examples that will help you assess your situation:
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 timeframe for submitting a claim depends on the laws of the country of departure, country of destination and the country in which the airlines headquarter is located.
Namely, if you fly Air France from Liege airport to London Gatwick airport, you are entitled to compensation based on the following laws:
Belgian law: 1 year
