Although airlines like Ryanair aim to maintain their scheduled times, flights may still arrive late. Fortunately, as a traveller, you are covered by airline passenger rights when Ryanair flights are delayed.
As Ryanair is headquartered in the EU, nearly all of its flights are protected by EC 261, one of the most comprehensive laws protecting air passenger rights globally.
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 Ryanair flight delay compensation claim. Simply enter your flight details and our user-friendly flight delay compensation calculator will tell you if you qualify for monetary compensation, and our team of professionals will be available to assist you in obtaining it.
In the event of a Ryanair flight cancellation, European laws on air passenger rights are clear: Ryanair 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 Ryanair 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 Ryanair 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 Ryanair.
These rights do not apply if the flight cancellation was caused by an event beyond Ryanair's control, such as severe weather conditions or an accident at the airport. Such events are referred to as exceptional circumstances.

Because Ryanair is based within the EU, almost all the flights they offer are protected by EC 261, one of the world's most comprehensive laws for air passenger rights.
The EC 261 Regulation grants passengers the right to claim compensation when they have experienced delayed, cancelled or overbooked flights, through no fault of their own. Passengers can also claim previous flights. Often you can still claim flights from the past 3 years.
