Our Flight Delay & Cancellation Compensation Calculator
Flight mishaps like a flight delay or cancellation leave a traveller feeling feeling financially and emotionally stressed.
When an airline leaves you stuck at the airport, whether your final destination was a relaxing holiday or a crucial business trip, you could be entitled to cash compensation of up to €600.
This is due to a European law called EC 261 which enforces the rights of air passengers.
This expansive regulation lists the criteria needed to be eligible to claim for compensation.
It states that regardless of where you live, if your flight departed from a European airport or you flew into Europe on a European airline – you could be eligible to make a claim.
But there’s more to it than that. For each flight mishap (e.g. delay or cancellation) – there are different factors to consider that determine if you are entitled to compensation and if you are – how much you are owed.
For example, to be entitled to flight delay compensation, your flight must be delayed for 3 hours or more.
Then there are ‘extraordinary circumstances’ where the airline does not have to pay cash compensation if there is a flight issue.
EC 261 can be difficult to digest – and often travellers are put off by what they see as confusing legal jargon.
It’s no wonder that only 55% of all passengers worldwide make a claim, even when they know they are entitled to it. Don’t be one of them! AirHelp has an easy solution to make sure you get the cash compensation you are owed.
