Transavia flight cancellations due to plane shortage: know your right to compensation!

Tuesday, March 26, 2024

Are you experiencing déjà vu? If you recall, we faced a similar issue with Transavia last year. Once again, Transavia is facing flight cancellations due to a plane shortage, disrupting their flight schedule. In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know about the current situation with Transavia flights and your right to flight compensation up to €600!

Why is Transavia cancelling their flights?

Transavia has attributed the current shortage to delays in fleet maintenance. The airline is actively adjusting its flight schedule and cancelling certain flights in order to minimise the impact on passengers as much as possible. However, details on the number of flights affected, the total number of passengers impacted, and how long these disruptions will last remain unclear, raising concerns as the May holiday season approaches.

Flight compensation: know your rights for cancelled Transavia flights due to plane shortage

If you find yourself affected by a cancelled Transavia flight, it’s crucial to understand your rights. Transavia will contact passengers directly in the event of a cancellation, and when they do will determine your right to compensation.

Under EU261 regulation concerning air passenger rights, you may be entitled to compensation if:

  • You were informed of the cancellation less than 14 days before departure.

  • The cancellation was due to reasons within Transavia’s control

Given that the plane shortage is linked to delayed maintenance, it is not considered an extraordinary circumstance as Transavia is responsible for the cancellations.

Should Transavia offer me an alternative flight if my flight is cancelled?

Legally, Transavia is not obligated to offer an alternative flight in the event of a cancellation. However, if they don’t, they must refund the full amount of your ticket. Our advice? Insist on a cash refund rather than accepting vouchers.
