If your Sky Express flight was delayed for more than 3 hours, you are entitled to flight compensation under British and European Union regulations. However, in order for you to be eligible for compensation, the airline must be at fault for the delay.
Check your eligibility for Sky Express delayed flight compensation using our free, no-obligation Claim Calculator — it only takes a minute! If you qualify, we can handle the entire claim process for you on a "no win, no fee" basis. If necessary, we will even defend your rights in court.
Depending on the circumstances of your Sky Express cancellation, you may be entitled to compensation of up to £520, a ticket refund, or both.
You may be entitled to compensation if the cancellation of your Sky Express flight was announced less than 14 days before the scheduled departure date.
Sky Express must be at fault for the cancellation in order to be eligible for compensation. See the "Extraordinary Circumstances" section of this article for more information.
If your Sky Express flight got cancelled, you can get a refund if:
The airline did not offer you an alternative flight
The airline did offer you an alternative flight, but you decided not to take it
You might get £520 in flight compensation for your delayed or cancelled Sky Express flight.
With us, you can claim compensation in just a few minutes!
The amount of compensation depends on the distance 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%.
If the delay or cancellation was caused by a third party or by force majeure, Sky Express reserves the right to refuse compensation. These situations are known as extraordinary circumstances.
Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are as follows:
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.
However, keep in mind that airlines sometimes claim that an extraordinary circumstance happened, even if that was not the case. They do it to avoid paying out compensation.
If you flew from the UK, you have 6 years to claim flight compensation and refund. When flying from Scotland, you have 5 years to claim.
