Some Key Points on Air Belgium Flight Delay Compensation
When you’re travelling, Air Belgium flight delays are the last thing you want to hear about. Delays are stressful, and oftentimes, can ruin your travel plans because you miss out on planned tours, bookings, or events.
This is why the EU has EC 261 in place, an air passenger rights law that ensures that you get essential care and monetary compensation in the event of a delay. This means that you can receive flight delay compensation from Air Belgium, as it is an airline based in the EU. Passengers of Air Belgium can, therefore, expect to receive as much as US$700 should the airline be considered at fault.
Of course, like all laws, there are exceptions — not all delays qualify for compensation. Delays that are under 3 hours, for example, do not qualify, and neither do delays caused by extraordinary circumstances.
Extraordinary circumstances refer to situations that are beyond an airline’s control, such as inclement weather, medical emergencies, and health, safety, or security risks.
However, even if Air Belgium is not required to pay, they are still obligated to provide you with essential care while you wait, including food, refreshments, and if needed, accommodation and transport. You can learn more about your rights here.
Don’t let flight delays ruin your journey. Get what you are rightfully owed by letting AirHelp work on your behalf. It’s quick, easy, and stress-free.

Some Key Points Regarding Air Belgium Flight Cancellation Compensation
No one wants to hear that their travel plans will be affected by Air Belgium flight cancellation. If you ever find yourself in this situation, don’t panic, and brush up on your air passenger rights instead.
Once you’ve received the news, check your departure schedule — was your flight cancelled less than 14 days before you were set to depart? If so, you might be entitled to Air Belgium canceled flight compensation. You could get up to US$700, depending on the travel distance.
Air Belgium is also required to offer a replacement flight to your intended destination, or give you a refund — whichever you prefer.
It is important to note, however, that if you were offered a replacement flight and your arrival time is similar to that of the original flight, Air Belgium is not obligated to pay compensation. You only receive compensation for significant delays.
Another exception is if the flight was disrupted by an extraordinary circumstance, which is a situation outside of the airline’s control. But even if they do not owe you compensation, they must still provide you with essential care in the form of food, refreshments, and accommodation.
