Handling a total of 12.3 million passengers in 2016, Edinburgh (EDI) is Scotland's busiest airport. Overall it's the sixth busiest airport in the United Kingdom. With 200+ possible destinations now on offer, it's become the UK's fastest growing airport. With that much passenger traffic, a flight departing from this airport is bound to be delayed, cancelled or overbooked every once in a while.
According to Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 an airline has to provide passengers with compensation if their flight is delayed for more than three hours, sporadically cancelled or unrightfully overbooked. Depending on the exact circumstances, the compensation can range from £220.00 up to £530.00 per passenger. However, claiming this can at times be difficult as carriers try to avoid paying the compensation out. Here's a few little tips to keep in mind when filing a claim:
Keep your documents
Record your flight data
Try to find out the reason for the delay
Check your flight with our claim calculator
Claim your compensation
Filing a claim on your own requires knowing your rights, being sure that the flight is eligible and back and forth communication with the airline. As carriers at times go to great lengths to evade paying compensation, certain claims then even have to go to court. If you would prefer not to waste your time and test your patience, just let us know as we would be more than happy to assist you herewith. With an elaborate database on actual flight schedules and weather conditions, years of experience and a 98% success rate in court, we're more than well equipped to take on your claim. Did we forget to mention our no win, no fee structure? If we need to take your case to court, we'll accept all of the risk and legal fees. Only if you get paid will we charge a 25% success fee.
If you do notice that your flight has been delayed prior to leaving for the airport, make sure to contact the airline, as it may be required for passengers to have checked in at the airline's check in desk, even if the flight doesn't depart as scheduled.
The total amount is established in Regulation EC 261/2004:
