Compensation for delayed Icelandair flight

EC Regulation 261 gives passengers the right to claim compensation when they have faced delayed, cancelled, or overbooked flights that are not their fault.
There are some extraordinary circumstances that may exempt airlines from paying compensation, such as bad weather or problems at the airport. Nevertheless, if the delay is caused by technical issues or a strike by airline staff, you will likely be eligible for compensation under Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004.
Moreover, you generally have up to 3 years to make a Icelandair flight delay compensation claim.

Flight Cancellation Compensation Icelandair
In the event of a Icelandair flight cancellation, European laws on air passenger rights are clear: Icelandair must offer you alternative transportation to get to your destination or, if you prefer, a refund.
Furthermore, if you received a notice regarding cancellation less than 14 days before departure, you may also be eligible to claim compensation of up to £520 per person.
When Icelandair cancels flights, it will usually attempt to rebook passengers on another flight at no extra cost. If this does not work for you, you may request other changes or choose to no longer take the trip.
If Icelandair books you a new flight that arrives at a similar time to your original flight, it is not required to pay compensation. This is because your plans will have minimal disruption. However, in many cases, passengers whose flights are cancelled at the last minute have the right to file a claim for compensation against Icelandair.
These rights do not apply if the flight cancellation was caused by an event beyond Icelandair's control, such as severe weather conditions or an accident at the airport. Such events are referred to as exceptional circumstances.
