Flight Cancellation Compensation Aer Lingus

In case of a flight cancellation by Aer Lingus, Australian laws on air passenger rights are clear: Aer Lingus must provide you with an alternate means of transportation to reach your destination or, if you prefer, a refund.

Additionally, if you received a cancellation notice less than 14 days before departure, you may also be eligible to claim compensation of up to {{ec261compensation} per person.

Generally, when Aer Lingus cancels a flight, it will try to rebook passengers onto another flight at no extra cost. You can request other changes if the offered alternative flight does not suit you or if you no longer want to take that trip.

If Aer Lingus can book you a new flight that lands at a similar time to your original flight, it is not required to pay any compensation. This is because you will reach your destination with minimal disruption to your plans. However, in many cases, passengers whose flights are canceled at the last minute have the right to file a claim against Aer Lingus for compensation.

All of this applies unless the flight cancellation was caused by an event beyond the control of Aer Lingus, such as adverse weather conditions or an accident at the airport. These events are referred to as exceptional circumstances.
