Having helped over 16 million passengers, AirHelp is the leading air passenger rights organization in the world. We help you get up to $700 (€600) per person in Smartlynx Airlines delay compensation or Smartlynx Airlines cancellation compensation, stress-free.
Whenever a flight is delayed or canceled it can completely ruin your travel plans. Not only do you end up wasting long hours at the airport, but it can also come with unexpected expenses such as having to buy food and other essentials while you wait. Plus, you’re also likely to miss out on scheduled events or important meetings at your destination.

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 Smartlynx Airlines 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.
No win, no fee
Even though Smartlynx Airlines 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.
|Covered by EC 261|
|Flights departing EU airports||✔️ Yes|
|Flights arriving at EU airports||❌ No|

As you might expect with any law, there are exceptions and special circumstances that can affect how much compensation is owed in every individual case. AirHelp makes it simple to check what you’re owed with our free compensation calculator.
