What are your Rights When it Comes to Bangkok Airways Flight Compensation?
Flight delays and cancellations do happen, and oftentimes, there is very little that air passengers can do about it.
However, for flights that are departing within the EU, you may be able to claim for Bangkok Airways flight compensation, even though they are not a European airline. This is because of a regulation known as UK 261.
According to this regulation, all flights departing from an EU airport are protected, which means that you can claim Bangkok Airways compensation in the event of a delay, cancellation, or overbooking. Unfortunately, though the departures are covered, the same cannot be said for arrivals. If your Bangkok Airways flight arrives in the EU from an airport that is outside of the EU, you are not covered by UK 261.

Getting Bangkok Airways Flight Delay Compensation
Flight delays are never fun. The stress, the confusion, the long hours waiting at the airport — it can be extremely frustrating and even cause you to miss out on pre-planned tours, events, and other time-sensitive engagements at your destination.
Generally, you are eligible for flight delay compensation from Bangkok Airways if you are departing from an EU airport, and if you are delayed by more than 3 hours. Depending on the length of the delay and the distance travelled, you can get up to £520 in compensation.
You are also entitled to receive care including free food, refreshments, and, during lengthier delays, a hotel room, as well as free transfers to and from the airport.
However, not all Bangkok Airways flight delays are eligible for compensation. One notable exception is in cases known as extraordinary circumstances, which include bad weather; as well as health, safety, or security threats; and airport personnel strikes and political unrest. In these cases, Bangkok Airways might have no choice but to delay the flight to ensure the safety of its passengers.

Getting Bangkok Airways cancelled Flight Compensation
You can get up to £520 in Bangkok Airways flight cancellation compensation, provided that your flight was cancelled less than 14 days before you were set to depart, and that the airline was considered responsible for the issue. The flight must also have been scheduled to depart from an EU airport. You can check what is covered in the table below.
If you think you're eligible for Bangkok Airways flight cancellation compensation, be sure to hold onto all of your flight documents. Remember that you have the right to care — which means that the airline must provide you with necessary food, refreshment, and lodgings while you wait for your replacement flights.
You are entitled to a replacement flight to your final destination free of charge — if you choose to travel. Otherwise, you also have the option to ask for a refund.
There are exceptions to receiving compensation, however — if your replacement flight arrives at a similar time to your original arrival time, Bangkok Airways is not obligated to pay compensation. You only receive compensation for lost time.

About Bangkok Airways
Bangkok Airways, headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, is a regional airline that provides scheduled flight services to various destinations in Thailand, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Laos, Maldives, Myanmar, Singapore, and Vietnam. Suvarnabhumi Airport serves as its primary hub. The airline's history dates back to 1968 when it was established as Sahakol Air. Initially, it operated air taxi services in collaboration with organizations such as the Overseas International Construction Company (OICC), an American construction firm, the United States Operations Mission (USOM), and several other entities involved in oil and natural gas exploration in the Gulf of Thailand. Bangkok Airways made a significant development by constructing its airport on Ko Samui, which commenced operations in April 1989. This airport facilitates direct flights between Ko Samui and destinations such as Chiang Mai, Hong Kong, Krabi, Pattaya, Phuket, and Singapore. In 1996, the airline expanded further by inaugurating its second airport in Sukhothai Province. Additionally, a third airport in Trat Province began operations in March 2003, primarily serving the popular tourist destination of Ko Chang.
