You may be entitled to receive up to £505.00 per person.
Was your flight with Turkish Airlines delayed, cancelled or overbooked? Then you have the right to claim up to € 600,- per person from the airline. Some criteria must be met, but you can check your flight for free with our claim calculator below and find out if you can claim compensation.
According to Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 of the European Parliament, you are entitled to compensation if a flight is delayed for three hours or more, or if you've arrived at your final destination with a delay greater than two hours after a cancellation (when you were informed of the disruption is also important). If your flight was overbooked and you were denied boarding, you may also be entitled to compensation.
The Regulations establish that you should also be taken care of in case of a flight delay, cancellation or if your boarding is denied. This is besides receiving compensation, so if the airline has provided you with the appropriate care you may still be entitled to be compensated. The airline must offer you the following:
*You may only receive 50% of the amount if you have reached your final destination with a delay greater than three hours but less than four. The total amount to receive in compensation is set in the regulation and is defined in Euros.
You are not entitled to receive compensation for your flight's disruption if it has been delayed or cancelled because of an extraordinary circumstance. These may include:
However, airlines often misuse the argument of extraordinary circumstances to reject claims that are perfectly valid. Therefore, passengers need to take the airlines to court in order to receive the compensation that they are entitled to.
In order to claim compensation for your flight delay or cancellation, you’ll need to prove that you held a booking to travel on the disrupted flight. This is often confirmed with information and documents that you are given when you receive your booking confirmation.

Strikes are part of flight irregularities. According to Regulation (EC) No 261/2004, you are not able to claim compensation if the strike is to be determined a "wildcat strike". However, if the airline was informed previously and had the opportunity to avoid all disruptions, you may be very well entitled to compensation. If you are still unsure if you have the right to claim, you can submit your claim with Flight-Delayed and our team will check the circumstances that affected your flight.
