You may be entitled to flight compensation if:
Your flight to or from Málaga Airport was delayed by over 3 hours,
The airline was to blame for the disruption (the airline will not reimburse you for your travel expenses if an "extraordinary circumstance" or a third party was to blame; see more information further down the page)
You may be eligible for a ticket refund, flight compensation up to £520, or possibly both if your flight to or from Málaga Airport was cancelled.
You must meet the following criteria to be qualified for flight compensation in the case that your flight to or from Málaga Airport was cancelled:
The cancellation of the flight occurred less than 14 days before the anticipated departure date, AND,
The airline must be at fault for the cancellation. For information on the scenarios in which the airline may deny your claim, see the section of this page under "Extraordinary Circumstances."
You can ask for a Málaga Airport ticket refund if you weren't given the option to take an alternative flight — or if you had one offered but decided against using it.
One piece of advice: Avoid accepting airline travel vouchers as payment. You would need to fly with the same problematic airline once again, and you may lose your money if the airline goes out of business and files for bankruptcy.
The distance covered determines the amount of your claim. The claim amount is per passenger.
|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|

There are times when the airline cannot compensate you for your cancelled or delayed flights. When there is a delay or cancellation caused by events outside the airline's control, extraordinary circumstances may arise.
Here is a list of some instances of these circumstances:
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 allowed to file a claim varies according to the specific laws that apply in the country of departure, the country of arrival, and the country where the airline is headquartered.
If you had a flight from Málaga Airport to Amsterdam operated by Lufthansa, you would be eligible to claim under the
Spanish law: 5 years
Dutch law: 2 years
German law: 3 year
Checking the itinerary of your flight before departing for the airport is a wise decision. By doing this, you'll be aware of any potential delays. You can thus be more ready to provide additional time to go to the airport in time for your impending journey.
