Orbest Flight Cancellation Compensation
Regardless of whether you're at home or abroad when you find out about your Orbest flight cancellation, you're going to have a lot of questions and concerns. The first thing to know is that Orbest should find you a new flight, or offer you a full refund.
But because flight cancellations almost always play havoc with your travel plans, you should check whether you're also entitled to claim Orbest canceled flight compensation to help make up for the disruption.
Under EU regulations, Orbest should pay passengers up to £520 per person when they cancel flights at late notice — that is, any flight cancellation less than 14 days before it was due to depart.
Orbest will not have to pay compensation if they were able to offer a replacement flight with similar departure and arrival times to the original. You can check the exact requirements on our flight cancellation compensation page.
Airlines also don't have to pay compensation if extraordinary circumstances were at play. That means that if an unusual situation occurred that was outside of the airline's control but forced a cancellation, there's no Orbest flight cancellation compensation owed. Typical examples include bad weather or a strike by air traffic control.
Orbest Flight Delay Compensation
Whenever you're kept waiting by Orbest flight delays, it's worth checking whether you're entitled to compensation for your time. If Orbest is responsible for the delay, EU regulations say that passengers are owed up to £520 per person when they're delayed by 3 hours or more.
When you're claiming flight delay compensation, Orbest will check what time the flight arrived at the final destination. That's because for flight delay claims it is the time that you arrived that is important, not the time of departure. AirHelp owns one of the most comprehensive databases of flight stats available, so we can always back up Orbest flight delay compensation claims with the exact delay time.
Airlines like Orbest do not have to pay out compensation if there's some external reason for the delay. That means delays caused by bad weather, an incident at the airport, or air traffic control strikes are not eligible for compensation. These kind of situations are called extraordinary circumstances.

What do EU Air Passenger Rights Say?
UK 261 is the EU regulation that covers situations like flight delays, cancellations, and overbookings. It lays out the care passengers can expect from airlines in the event of any of these disruptions, and it clearly states in what situations passengers are owed compensation.
Travelers are allowed to claim for past flights under UK 261 — often you can still claim for flights in the past 3 years.
The regulation applies to all flights that depart from a European airport, but as Orbest is a European airline, passengers are given extra protection by UK 261, and flights into Europe are covered too, even when they depart from outside the EU.
