Qatar Airways flight compensation — what are my rights?

Did you fly with Qatar Airways from the United Kingdom or Europe? Since Qatar Airways is a non-EU airline, British and EU laws protect your right to compensation only on the flights departing from the UK/EU.

Unfortunately, your passenger's rights are not protected under British and European flight compensation regulations when flying to the UK/EU on a non-EU airline. 

The table below contains more information on when you may be entitled to flight compensation.

Delayed Qatar Airways flight — claim compensation

If your Qatar Airways flight from the UK/Europe was delayed for more than 3 hours, you are entitled to flight compensation under British and European flight compensation regulations. The airline's actions must have caused the delay.

Use our no-obligation Claim Calculator to see if you are eligible for compensation — you'll know if you're eligible for Qatar Airways delayed flight compensation in less than a minute.

If your situation qualifies, we will handle the entire claim process on a "no win, no fee" basis. We will even fight for your rights in court!

Cancelled Qatar Airways flight — refund and compensation rules

Depending on the reasons and circumstances behind your Qatar Airways flight cancellation, you may be entitled to compensation of up to £520, a ticket refund, or both.

 

When can I claim compensation for my cancelled Qatar Airways flight?

If your cancelled Qatar Airways flight was leaving from the United Kingdom or the EU, you may be eligible for compensation.

Furthermore, for you to be eligible for cancelled flight compensation, your Qatar Airways flight must have been cancelled fewer than 14 days prior to the original departure date.

Even if you meet both of the criteria, the airline may still deny you compensation. More information on denied claims can be found below under "Extraordinary Circumstances."

 

When can I claim a refund for my cancelled Qatar Airways flight?

If your Qatar Airways flight from the UK/EU was cancelled, you may be eligible for a refund if:

  1. The airline did not offer you an alternative flight.

  2. The airline did offer you an alternative flight, an offer that you turned down.

How much Qatar Airways compensation can I get for a delayed or cancelled flight?

The amount of compensation is determined by the length of your flight:
 

  • For flights shorter than 1,500 km, the compensation is £220.

  • For flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km, the compensation is £350.

  • For flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU, the compensation is also £350.

  • For flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU, the compensation is £520 —but if your flight was delayed by fewer than 4 hours, the total amount might be reduced by 50%.

Extraordinary circumstances — can Qatar Airways deny me compensation?

Qatar Airways reserves the right to refuse compensation when a third party or force majeure causes a delay or cancellation. These situations are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.

Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are:
 

  • 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, however, that airlines might claim that an extraordinary circumstance occurred, even if this was not the case. They do so in hope they can avoid having to pay you compensation.

Don't be taken in by the airline's false arguments. Check online to see if you qualify for flight compensation.
