Ellinair Flight Delay Compensation

Any Ellinair 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 UK 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 Ellinair 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 Ellinair flight delay compensation. Don’t miss out on up to £520 per person.

We make claiming compensation for Ellinair 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.

Ellinair Canceled Flight Compensation

In Europe, UK 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 Ellinair can't offer an acceptable replacement. Additionally, for any Ellinair flight cancellation less than 14 days before the flight, passengers may also be eligible for Ellinair flight cancellation compensation, up to £520 per person.

That's unless there were some kind of extraordinary circumstances which gave Ellinair 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 Ellinair 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.

Can I get a refund and compensation if my Ellinair flight was canceled due to coronavirus?

Generally, no — you can only get a refund for your flight ticket after a cancellation as coronavirus is an extraordinary circumstance and therefore is not eligible for compensation.
