What your Air Passenger Rights say about Delays in Bergen Airport
If you experience lengthy Bergen Airport delays or cancellations, your flight could be eligible for compensation. This is because Bergen Airport (BGO) is located within the EU, which means flights that depart from here are protected by EU Regulation No. 261/2004 — or EC 261 for short. All EU countries are covered by EC 261, including departures from special territories such as the Canary Islands, the Azores, and Martinique.
So what is EC 261 exactly? Well, it’s a law that holds airlines financially accountable when there is an unexpected flight disruption like a delay or cancellation — provided that it was not caused by circumstances outside of the airline’s control. This means that whenever a flight is heavily disrupted and the airline is found to be at fault, the carrier will have to pay their passengers a certain amount of compensation.
The Iaw also requires airlines to provide their passengers with care during the wait, which includes offering food and refreshments, and if necessary, free accommodation, transport, and alternative flights.

Claiming Compensation for Bergen Airport Cancellations or Delays
When you first hear about Bergen Airport canceled flights, you may be wondering if you should be booking your own flight home. Fortunately, as ruled by EC 261, airlines are required to provide you with an alternative flight to your intended destination. If you’re lucky enough to get upgraded, you do not have to pay anything extra for your seat, however, if they do downgrade you, expect to get back around 30-75% of the original price of your ticket.
If your flight was canceled less than 14 days before departure, or if your flight was delayed by more than 3 hours, you may be entitled to compensation. The exact amount that you will receive varies, but you could potentially get up to €600 per person.
You can usually claim compensation up 3 years after the flight disruption occurs, though some EU countries have shorter or longer limitation periods. Ideally, you will want to make your claim as soon as possible.
