Your Air Passenger Rights Whilst at Basel Airport

As Basel Airport (BSL) is located within the EU, flights departing, and in some cases, arriving at this airport are likely to be covered by a law known as EU Regulation No. 261/2004.

In a nutshell, EC 261 ensures that you have rights in the event of a flight delay, cancellation, or overbooking. The law says that during a disruption, the airline must provide food, drinks, and accommodation if needed, especially if you have to wait for a replacement flight that is set to leave several hours later. Should the airline be at fault for the delays in Airport, you may also be entitled to get up to US$700 per person.
