Turkish Airlines Flight Cancellation Compensation

Regardless of whether you're at home or abroad when you find out about your Turkish Airlines flight cancellation, you're going to have a lot of questions and concerns. The first thing to know is that Turkish Airlines 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 Turkish Airlines canceled flight compensation to help make up for the disruption.

Under EU regulations, Turkish Airlines 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.

Turkish Airlines 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 Turkish Airlines flight cancellation compensation owed. Typical examples include bad weather or a strike by air traffic control.

When filing for flight delay compensation, Turkish Airlines will verify the time of arrival at the final destination, not the departure time. AirHelp possesses one of the most comprehensive flight databases, which allows us to substantiate claims for Turkish Airlines flight delay compensation.

Airlines like Turkish Airlines aren't obligated to provide compensation if the delay was caused by external factors, such as adverse weather conditions, airport mishaps, or air traffic control strikes. These incidents are deemed extraordinary circumstances.

Air Passenger Rights and Flight Compensation

Because Turkish Airlines 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.
