The airline is responsible for the disruption of your flight. Unfortunately, the airline is not obliged to pay compensation for the flight if the third party or "extraordinary circumstances" are to blame.

Did the airline offer you a replacement flight? No need to panic, you may still be entitled to a refund of your flight ticket if you decide not to take the replacement flight.
We advise you not to accept a travel voucher from the airline as it forces you to use their services again, which may also put you at risk of losing money if the airline files for bankruptcy.

|Distance of your flight||Compensation|
|Flights shorter than 1,500 km||Get £220 per passenger|

Flight compensation does not apply in all situations. Situations that do not allow passengers to claim compensation are called “extraordinary circumstances”. These include, but are not limited to:
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.
The time limit for submitting a claim varies and is determined by the regulations of the departure and destination countries, as well as the location of the airline's headquarters.
For example, if you fly Wizz Air from Warsaw Chopin Airport to London Gatwick airport, you can claim compensation based on the laws of the following countries:
Hungarian law: 2 years
Polish law:1 year
British law: 6 years
