About Vueling

Vueling is one of the largest Spanish airlines, alongside Air Europa, Iberia, and Volotea. Since 2013, Vueling has been part of the International Airlines Group, a parent company of multiple other carriers, such as British Airways and the aforementioned Iberia.

Vueling serves over a hundred destinations across Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Besides its main hub at the Barcelona-El Prat Airport, the low-cost airline has hubs also at Paris-Orly and Rome-Fiumicino.

UK and EU air passenger rights

If your Vueling flight was delayed or cancelled, your rights to compensation and refunds are protected by British and EU regulations.

It all started in 2004 with the so-called EU261 regulation which stated that air passengers should be compensated for the loss of time as a result of flight cancellations. Following additional court rulings, the regulation started to cover delayed flights as well.

After Brexit, EU261 was adopted into British law.

When can I claim compensation for a delayed Vueling flight?

Generally, you can claim Vueling compensation if your flight was delayed by at least 3 hours. 

Keep in mind that to be eligible for compensation, Vueling must be the party at fault for the delay. See the Extraordinary Circumstances section of this article for more information on situations where the airline does not need to pay out compensation.

 

Vueling cancelled flight – compensation and refund

Depending on the exact circumstances of your flight cancellation, you might be eligible for flight compensation, a flight refund, or both.


When can I claim compensation for a cancelled Vueling flight?

This depends on three factors:
 

  • When the flight was cancelled — you can claim Vueling compensation if your flight cancellation was announced fewer than 14 days prior to the departure.
  • Details of the alternative flight offered by the airline — see table below.
  • Who or what caused the cancellation — Vueling must be the party at fault for the cancellation for you to be eligible for compensation. Check the Extraordinary Circumstances section of this article to learn more.

When can I claim a Vueling refund for a cancelled flight?

Even if you don’t qualify for cancelled flight compensation, you can probably still claim your Vueling refund. 

You are eligible for a ticket refund if after the cancellation the airline did not offer you an alternative flight — or they did offer you one but you decided not to take it. In some cases, you might be eligible for both Vueling compensation and a Vueling ticket refund!

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: Vueling is not allowed to force you to accept a travel voucher instead of a monetary refund.

 


Airlines often try to avoid paying out compensation and refunds.

How much Vueling flight compensation can I get?

The exact compensation amount 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%.

Can I claim compensation for a non-EU Vueling flight?

Yes, no matter where you are flying with Vueling, you are eligible for compensation and a refund.

However, the situation might be different for other airlines. See the table below to learn more.

Extraordinary circumstances — when can Vueling deny me compensation?

In certain situations, the airline is not obliged to pay compensation to the passengers. This happens when the flight disruption was not caused by the airline’s actions but rather is an effect of force majeure or if a third party is at fault.

We call such situations extraordinary circumstances. The most common examples of these 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 often claim that extraordinary circumstances happened, even if that was not the case. They do so in hope that they will avoid paying out compensation.

Let us help you get your money. We will carefully assess all the circumstances and if we find you to be eligible for compensation, our team will fight for your rights until the very end. No win, no fee.
