Luxair 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 Luxair can't offer an acceptable replacement. Additionally, for any XXX flight cancellation less than 14 days before the flight, passengers may also be eligible for XXX flight cancellation compensation, up to $700 per person.

That's unless there were some kind of extraordinary circumstances which gave XXX 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 XXX 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 $700 in compensation if your flight has been delayed, canceled, or overbooked within the last 3 years.

Flight Compensation and Air Passenger Rights

Even though Luxair 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 XXX 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, XXX cancellation compensation, or overbooking compensation if XXX 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. XXX 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.

Which XXX Flights are Covered by EC 261?

Flights departing EU airports ✔️ Yes
Flights arriving at EU airports ❌ No

Can I get a refund and compensation if my Luxair 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.
