Air Passenger Rights and Flight Compensation

Even though Srilankan 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 United Airlines 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, United Airlines cancellation compensation, or overbooking compensation if United Airlines 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. Srilankan Airlines 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.
