When a third party or force majeure causes a delay or cancellation, Royal Air Maroc has the right to refuse compensation. 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.
You have 6 years to claim compensation and refund if you had a delayed flight to or from the United Kingdom. The exception is Scotland, where you have 5 years to claim.
Different rules might apply if your itinerary does not include the United Kingdom.
