EasyJet Flight Delay Compensation
For the most part, EasyJet makes every effort to stick to their advertised schedules, but sometimes things don’t go according to plan.
And when your travel plans take a downward turn due to an unforeseen delay – what EasyJet delay compensation can you get?
The good news is the EU legislation, EC 261, was designed for this purpose. According to this legislation, as long as the flight arrives later than 3 hours after the scheduled ETA, passengers can be entitled to compensation up to €600.
There are a few options to choose from when deciding how to claim your EasyJet delay compensation. However, the best way is to get your compensation with AirHelp. If you want to find out if your delayed flight is actually eligible for compensation and how much the airline owes you – our free flight delay compensation calculator tells you this information in minutes. No need to fill out any complicated EasyJet delayed flight claim form or spend a fortune on legal fees – we’ll do the heavy lifting for you.
EasyJet Cancellation Flight Compensation
Sometimes, EasyJet cancels flights and in certain circumstances, you could be entitled to Easyjet cancellation flight compensation.
Generally speaking, when EasyJet cancels your flight, the airline will attempt to rebook you onto another flight at no additional charge. In fact, in most cases of cancelled flights, EasyJet will automatically try and rebook you onto another flight. You can request further changes if the alternative flight doesn’t work for you, or if you no longer wish to travel that route.
However, under EU legislation, in the event that EasyJet cancels your flight but doesn’t give you a 14-day notice or a re-routing option – you are entitled to EasyJet cancellation compensation. This is when AirHelp steps in to simplify the process of getting your compensation and turning your flight experience around.
We’re able to step in and provide you with a way forward because European legislation, namely EC 261, entitles you to flight cancellation compensation as part of your rights as an air passenger.
To find out if you are eligible for EasyJet cancelled flight compensation and how much you stand to get from the airline – enter your flight details into our free compensation calculator and we will take it from there.
So no need to get bogged down with a complicated EasyJet claim form, our easy-to-use compensation calculator will let you know if you are owed compensation and how much EasyJet stands to give you.
Be aware that if you cancel your flight for personal reasons, there is no compensation owed. Tickets can usually be rebooked on the EasyJet website. You may be asked to pay a rebooking fee and a handling charge, depending on the type of ticket you purchased. If you rebook a ticket that turns out to be more expensive than your original flight, you’ll need to pay the difference. As a general rule, as long as there are still seats available, you can usually rebook your ticket in the same fare class or higher.
How is Easyjet compensation calculated?
There is a popular misconception about EasyJet compensation which is the amount of compensation you are owed depends on the price of your ticket. It isn’t. According to EC 261, which elaborates on air passenger rights, the amount of EasyJet compensation you are owed when you’ve suffered a flight delay is based on the distance of your flight.
Our helpful chart below breaks down what you are owed based on the distance of your flight. And remember, when in doubt of how much EasyJet flight delay compensation you are owed, you can follow this link to our free compensation checker and find out in minutes how much you are entitled to for your EasyJet flight disruption.
€250 for flights delayed three hours or more, in which the total flight distance is less than 1,500 km
€400 for flights delayed three hours or more, in which the total flight distance is between 1,500 km and 3,500 km (or more than 1,500 km within the EU).
€300 for flights delayed between three and four hours
€600 for flights delayed more than four hours, in which the total flight distance is more than 3,500 km (or between an EU and non-EU airport).
If your flight is delayed five hours or more, by law, the airline has to give you:
A full refund for the flight
A full refund for other flights in that same reservation which you won’t be able to make
A flight back to your original point of departure (the first airport you departed from)
Food and drinks
Access to phone calls and e-mail
Accommodation if you're delayed overnight as well as transportation between the airport and the hotel
When are you not entitled to EasyJet compensation?
According to EU legislation, there are circumstances when an EasyJet flight delay or cancellation will not lead to EasyJet delay compensation.
This is when the delay or cancellation is due to extraordinary circumstances, which is loosely defined as scenarios beyond an airline’s control. These situations include but are not limited to: lightning strikes; medical emergencies; and strikes by airport or air traffic control staff. However, if the airline staff members strike, then the affected flight qualifies for compensation because airline management is considered responsible for their employees’ behaviour.
However, note that if an airline explains that a flight delay or cancellation occurs because of “technical difficulties” or “operational difficulties,” these circumstances do not count as “extraordinary circumstances.” That means you are still eligible for flight cancellation compensation.
