Will Brexit affect my claim?
As you know, both the date and the consequences of a potential Brexit are unknown. Once the United Kingdom exits the European Union, Regulation EC. 261/2004, regarding flight delays and cancellations, will potentially no longer apply to UK airlines and/or flight routes. The validity of your claim may then depend on the type of problem that occurred, the exact flight route, operating airline, date of booking and/or root cause. These factors would determine whether your claim would still be valid based on the EU jurisdiction. It is possible the EU Regulations and subsequent additional case law will eventually be adopted by the UK or that the further negotiations regarding laws and policies will take several years, during which compensation claims will still continue as before. If more definite information becomes available that applies to your claim, we will inform you accordingly. In the meantime, any further emails requesting documents or containing updates about the status of your claim should not necessarily be regarded as confirmation that your claim will continue to be valid in the future.
What can I do to avoid any delays in the processing of my claim?
