Your Air Passenger Rights After Birmingham Airport Delays and Cancellations
We know how frustrating it can be to experience Birmingham Airport delays and cancellations. For most people, traveling is stressful enough without the added strain of a disrupted flight. After all, a late flight can lead to missed connections, bookings, and events — in other words, a delay not only leads to loss of time but loss of money as well.
This is why EU Regulation No. 261/2004 was created. Shortened to EC 261, it’s a law that protects air passengers by making the airlines financially responsible for flight delays and other disruptions that they are responsible for.
According to EC 261,

What Happens After Birmingham Airport Delays?
So what happens after you experience delays in Birmingham Airport? Well, the first thing you need to check is how long the delay is expected to last. Ask the airline how long you’re expected to wait, and be sure to ask for the reason behind the delay. Sometimes, the airline will be at fault, while at other times, the disruption is beyond their control.
If the airline is responsible for the disruption, and if you arrive at your intended destination more than 3 hours late, you may be eligible for compensation. Each passenger can expect to get as much as $700, depending on distance traveled and the total length of the delay.
When you claim for compensation for your delayed flight, you usually have up to 3 years to claim. However, it can vary from country to country, which is why it is better to submit a claim as soon as possible so that you do not miss out on the cash owed to you.
What Happens After Birmingham Airport Flight Cancellations?
Birmingham Airport flight cancellations can be especially frustrating, particularly when you are left stranded at the airport. Flight cancellations are sometimes a necessity, but when they could have been avoided, you must be compensated. If a flight cancellation was the airline’s responsibility, you could get up to US$700 in compensation per passenger.
However, this only applies to flights that were canceled less than 14 days before your scheduled departure. If they gave you a heads up of more than 14 days before, the airline is not legally obligated to pay.
The airline is still obligated to provide you with an alternative flight to your destination. Alternatively, you can also choose to get your flight refunded if you no longer wish to travel.
