Flight Compensation Calculator
The AirHelp flight compensation calculator offers an instant check of whether you are due compensation. It is free of charge and can immediately tell you the amount that you are eligible to claim in compensation from an airline that departs from or lands in the EU region. Enter your flight details, including the airport you departed from, your destination, and whether or not you had a connecting flight. Some airlines might try to block you from claiming flight compensation, especially if the flight took place a year ago or earlier. So at AirHelp, we launched this online claim tool to make it easier for you to claim the compensation you are entitled to under EC 261 passenger rights.

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.
