Your right to compensation for a delayed flight depends on a few different factors. Essentially, it boils down to whether or not it was Flybe’s fault.
According to the EU 261 legislation, you are entitled to Flybe compensation if your flight delay was more than 3 hours. In this circumstance, Flybe could owe you compensation to €600 for the inconvenience their flight delay caused. And what’s more, your Flybe compensation claim will remain valid for up to 6 years after the flight disruption.
Flybe might offer you a voucher to smooth things over while you wait, but we’ve heard of instances when this form actually waives your right to receiving compensation. So, the best thing you can do right now is to click our flight compensation checker link that lets you know if your flight is eligible for compensation and let us take it from there.
Flybe Flight Cancellation Compensation
Sometimes, Flybe cancels flights. This happens to many airlines and for a variety of reasons. If they can, Flybe generally attempts to rebook passengers onto another flight at no additional charge. In fact, in most cases of canceled flights, Flybe 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.
If you need to cancel the flight entirely, tickets can be rebooked on the Flybe website. You’ll 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.
At AirHelp, we offer ‘Justice as a Service’ and we can help when Flybe cancels a flight but doesn’t give you a 14-day notice or a re-routing option. We’re able to step in and provide you with a way forward because European legislation, namely EC261, entitles you to flight cancellation compensation as part of your rights as an air passenger.
We can help you understand your rights and file your claim.
How is compensation for Flybe flight delays calculated?
There is a popular misconception about Flybe 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 Flybe compensation you are owed when you’ve suffered a flight delay is based on the distance of your flight.
Our helpful chart breaks down what you are owed based on the distance of your flight. And remember, when in doubt of how much Flybe 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 Flybe 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 Flybe compensation?
According to EU legislation, there are circumstances when a Flybe flight delay or cancellation will not lead to Flybe 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’ behavior.
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.
