EU Flight Delay Compensation Form
Submitting an EU flight delay compensation form can be a complicated process. In order to comply with each airline's specific requirements, the correct forms and supporting documentation (such as boarding passes or booking receipts) must be provided.
Even though EU flight legislation protects passengers who experience delays departing or landing from EU airports, compensation depends on how long the delay was and the distance of the delayed flight. Your supporting documentation helps confirm your case and make sure you get your money as soon as possible.

Submitting forms for flight delay compensation
Each airline has its own procedure for compensation so it is often simpler and more efficient if you start the claim process using a professional service like AirHelp. You can use the AirHelp Eligibility Check to see if you qualify and AirHelp can submit your claim for you.
If you think you have a claim, you should keep any paperwork or boarding passes from the delayed flight. This will make the process faster and more likely to succeed. There is no risk and submitting a claim is free of charge: you'll only have to pay if your claim is successful. Most people don't have the legal knowledge and expertise to contest legal claims in court so AirHelp takes all the stress out of claiming for flight delays.

We operate on a no win, no fee basis, so you can check your compensation risk-free.
Claiming Compensation for Flight Delays and Cancellations
How do you know when you should claim compensation for a delayed or cancelled flight? Though the law can be complicated, we're here to break it down for you:
Delayed flights: you may be able to claim compensation if your flight arrived 3 hours or more late.
Cancelled flights: you may be eligible for compensation if your flight was cancelled less than 14 days before it was due to depart.
Overbookings: you are owed compensation any time you are denied boarding through no fault of your own — so long as you didn't voluntarily give up your seat.
We should note that if extraordinary circumstances were involved, arirlines are under no obligation to pay compensation. Examples of extraordinary circumstances include bad weather, travel restrictions, and air traffic control strikes. Though these situations cause delays and cancellations, the airline isn't at fault, so can't be expected to offer compensation.
Remember these are European flight regulations and so only apply to flights departing from an EU airport, or flights landing in the EU with a European airline. The table below makes it clear which flights are covered:

What to Do if Your Flight is Delayed or Cancelled
If you experience a flight delay or cancellation, here's what you should do:
- Hold onto your boarding pass and other travel documents.
- Ask why the flight was delayed or cancelled.
- Request food, drinks, and if necessary, free transport and hotel accommodation.
- If you had a cancelled flight, ask for an alternative flight or a refund.
- Keep all receipts of any extra expenses you may have had, including necessary food, clothing, etc.
- Be careful not to sign any waivers or accept vouchers that will require you to waive your right to compensation.
