You have the Right to Reimbursement and Compensation: Aeroflot
Looking to claim Aeroflot delay compensation? Curious how much Aeroflot cancellation compensation you’re owed? Let the world’s largest air passenger rights organisation handle your claim.
What your Rights say about Aeroflot Flight Compensation
There are few things as frustrating as hearing that your flight was delayed — or worse, cancelled. A disrupted flight can wreak havoc on your journey and completely ruin your travel plans. You may be left stranded at the airport, missing out on bookings that you have already paid for — such as tours, events, and concerts. Sometimes, you may even miss out on special events at your destination, such as a wedding or an important business meeting.
If your flight was departing from a UK or EU airport, however, you’re in luck. You can claim for Aeroflot flight compensation. Though Aeroflot is not a European airline, when departing from an UK or EU airport, its flights are covered by either EC 261 or "UK 261" an air passenger rights regulations that protect travellers.
According to the UK air passenger regulation, when your flight is eligible you can get up to £520 in compensation per passenger. This includes for delays of more than 3 hours and cancellations that were announced less than 14 days before departure.
UK 261 is not limited to just Aeroflot compensation either. The law also requires airlines to provide essential free food, drink, and lodgings for their passengers while they wait.
Curious if your flight is eligible for compensation? With AirHelp’s easy Compensation Check, you can find out what you’re owed in minutes.

When are you Not Eligible for Compensation?
Though UK air passenger rights laws are among the world’s most comprehensive air passenger rights regulations, not all disrupted flights are eligible for flight delay compensation from Aeroflot.
As mentioned before, only Aeroflot flight delays that occur while departing from a UK or EU airport are covered. If your flight departed from a non-UK or non-EU airport, the law does not provide coverage.
Another notable exception is if the flight was disrupted by extraordinary circumstances, which are situations over which the airline has no control. This includes severe weather conditions, medical emergencies, security threats, political unrest, and airport staff strikes.
It is important to note, however, that strikes conducted by airline employees are not considered extraordinary circumstances, as the airline is deemed to be responsible for the actions of their staff.
And when it comes to Aeroflot flight cancellation compensation, only significant delays count — if Aeroflot manages to provide you with a replacement flight that gets you in at a similar time to your original arrival schedule, they are not obligated to pay.

What to Do when Claiming for Aeroflot Compensation
When claiming for Aeroflot cancelled flight compensation, be sure to ask questions at the airport — ask how long your flight is expected to be delayed and the cause behind the delay or cancellation, if it hasn’t already been announced.
You will want to hold onto your documents as well — including your boarding pass and flight confirmation. You can even take photos of the departure board as proof that your flight was delayed.
Be sure to ask for food and refreshments while you wait. And if needed, ask for accommodation and transport to and from the airport until it is time to depart. This is especially important for long waits overnight.
And of course, use AirHelp to check if your flight is covered.
