Compensation for delayed Finnair flight

Although airlines like Finnair aim to maintain their scheduled times, flights may still arrive late. Fortunately, as a traveller, you are covered by airline passenger rights when Finnair flights are delayed.

As Finnair is headquartered in the EU, nearly all of its flights are protected by EC 261, one of the most comprehensive laws protecting air passenger rights globally.

EC Regulation 261 gives passengers the right to claim compensation when they have faced delayed, cancelled, or overbooked flights that are not their fault.

There are some extraordinary circumstances that may exempt airlines from paying compensation, such as bad weather or problems at the airport. Nevertheless, if the delay is caused by technical issues or a strike by airline staff, you will likely be eligible for compensation under Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004.

Moreover, you generally have up to 3 years to make a Finnair flight delay compensation claim. Simply enter your flight details and our user-friendly flight delay compensation calculator will tell you if you qualify for monetary compensation, and our team of professionals will be available to assist you in obtaining it.

Flight Cancellation Compensation Finnair

In case of a flight cancellation by Finnair, Australian laws on air passenger rights are clear: Finnair 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 $ 700 per person.

Generally, when Finnair 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 Finnair 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 Finnair for compensation.

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