Braathens Regional Flight Delay Compensation

Any Braathens Regional flight departing from a European airport must conform to the European law which protects air passengers in the event of flight delays.

This law, known as EC 261, says that airlines must provide passengers with food, drink, and access to communication when they're delayed. They must also offer accommodation and replacement flights if necessary. In some cases, such as when your delay turns into a cancellation, you may also request a refund of your ticket — especially if the replacement flight no longer suits your travel goals.

But more than that, if Braathens Regional is responsible for the flight delay, the law says that they must compensate passengers when the flight is delayed by 3 hours or more. All the details are included in our guide to flight delay compensation.

So if you arrive at your destination over 3 hours late, it's always worth checking if you're owed Braathens Regional flight delay compensation. Don’t miss out on up to £520 per person.

We make claiming compensation for Braathens Regional flight delays as easy as possible. Our free Compensation Calculator, together with our air passenger rights experts, will confirm your delay time, and make sure there are no extraordinary circumstances which impact your eligibility. You can usually claim for flights from as far back as 3 years ago.

Braathens Regional Canceled Flight Compensation

In Europe, EC 261 protects all passengers in the event of flight cancellations, especially last-minute flight cancellations.

Passengers due to depart from a European airport are always entitled to a full refund if their flight is canceled and Braathens Regional can't offer an acceptable replacement. Additionally, for any Braathens Regional flight cancellation less than 14 days before the flight, passengers may also be eligible for Braathens Regional flight cancellation compensation, up to £520 per person.

That's unless there were some kind of extraordinary circumstances which gave Braathens Regional no choice but to cancel the flight. The law accepts that airlines should only pay compensation when they are at fault — but they must still ensure passengers reach their final destination or get a full refund for the flight.

Airlines like Braathens Regional also don't need to pay compensation if they're able to offer an alternative flight that arrives at a very similar time to the original one. The specific time limits are included in our flight cancellation compensation guide.

Claim up to £520 in compensation if your flight has been delayed, canceled, or overbooked within the last 3 years.

Flight Compensation and Air Passenger Rights

Even though Braathens Regional is not a European airline, they always comply with European laws every time they depart from a European airport. That means passengers flying out of a European airport with Braathens Regional are protected by EC 261, one of the world's most comprehensive air passenger rights laws.

This gives passengers the right to claim flight delay compensation, Braathens Regional cancellation compensation, or overbooking compensation if Braathens Regional is responsible for the issue. That's in addition to their rights to a flight refund.

Unfortunately, the same protections don't apply for flights going the other way. Braathens Regional passengers who land in the EU are not covered by EC 261 if the departure airport is outside the EU. For these flights, you'll need to check what other air passenger rights apply.
