Orbest Canceled Flight Compensation

If you've heard your journey will be affected by Orbest flight cancellations it pays to know about Europe's EC 261 air passenger rights.

In an effort to discourage airlines from cancelling flights at the last minute, Europe introduced a set of clear air passenger rights known as EC 261. The sections on flight cancellation say that if an airline like Orbest cancels a flight less than 14 days before it was due to depart, they must pay out up to US$700 in compensation to each affected passenger.

Because the laws focus on avoiding disruption to passengers, there is no Orbest flight cancellation compensation owed if you're offered a replacement flight that arrives at a very similar time to the original.

Orbest also won't have to pay compensation if there were extraordinary circumstances which made the cancellation necessary. For example, airlines are sometimes left no choice but to cancel flights due to an incident at the airport, or bad weather. Because the airline isn't responsible for the problem, they don't have to pay compensation. Although they must still offer passengers a replacement flight or full refund.

Orbest Flight Delay Compensation

European air passenger laws also help travelers when their flights have been delayed. If your flight landed at your final destination over 3 hours late you should check whether you are owed up to US$700 per person in compensation.

It's worth checking what caused the Orbest flight delays — airlines are required to pay compensation whenever they are responsible for the delay. But if the delay was caused by an unavoidable situation which was out of their control, no compensation is owed.

If, for example, the delay is due to a technical issue, or operational problem, all delayed passengers are eligible for Orbest flight delay compensation. But if there's an incident at the airport, a strike by air traffic control staff, or bad weather en route there's no compensation available.

What do EU Air Passenger Rights Say?

As Orbest has its headquarters in Europe, its passengers are offered a great deal of protection by EC 261, Europe's comprehensive air passenger rights.

All Orbest flights that depart from or land at European airports are covered by EC 261. That means passengers can expect care in the event that their flight is delayed, canceled, or overbooked. And in some situations, they're owed compensation too.

Passengers are also entitled to claim for past flights — often you can still claim for flights that were affected in the past 3 years.
