When flying with Wamos you can claim compensation when your flight was delayed by more than 3 hours. Wamos, though, must be the party at fault for the disruption.
Claim your money now with Flight-Delayed.co.uk. We will handle the whole claim process for you — even fighting for your rights in court, if needed. No win, no fee!
Was your Wamos flight cancelled? Depending on the exact circumstances of the cancellation, you might be eligible for a ticket refund, compensation of up to £520, or even both!
If the cancellation of your Wamos flight was announced less than 14 days before the initial departure date you can claim Wamos flight cancelled compensation.
Keep in mind that Wamos must be the party at fault for the cancellation for you to be eligible for compensation. It is possible that your flight was cancelled due to the so-called “Extraordinary Circumstances” in which case the airline doesn’t have to pay you compensation.
You can claim a Wamos refund in two situations:
You were offered an alternative flight but decided not to take it
You were not offered any alternative flight at all
|Cancellation notice||Alternative flight||Compensation|
|Fewer than 7 days in advance||Departs 1h+ earlier or arrived 2h+ later||Yes|
|7-14 days in advance||Departs 2h+ earlier or arrived 4h+ later||Yes|
|Fewer than 14 days in advance||No alternative flight offered||Yes + refund|
The amount depend on the distance of your flight:
|Distance of your flight||Compensation|
|Flights shorter than 1,500 km||Get £220 per passenger|
|Flight between 1,500 and 3,500 km||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU||Get £520 per passenger|
Yes, in certain circumstances Wamos can deny you compensation. When the delay or the cancellation was caused by a third party or force majeure, Wamos is not responsible for the event — therefore, they are not obliged to pay compensation. We call these situations 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.
Yes, you are eligible for compensation in such a situation. The UE flight compensation rules apply to all Wamos’s flights since the airline is headquartered in Madrid, Spain. Even if you were flying with Wamos to/from Mexico or Cuba, you can claim compensation for your delayed or cancelled flight.
However, the situation might be different when flying with a non-EU/non-UK airline. See the table below for more information.
|Type of flight||Example||Compensation|
|Flying with a British carrier||Tokyo to London with British Airways||Yes|
|Flying with a EU carrier||Amsterdam to London with KLM||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier from the UK||London to Tokyo with Japan Airlines||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier to the UK||Tokyo to London with Japan Airlines||No|
