Your Air Passenger Rights After Budapest Airport Delays and Cancellations

We know how frustrating it can be to experience Budapest Airport delays and cancellations. For most people, traveling is stressful enough without the added strain of a disrupted flight. After all, a late flight can lead to missed connections, bookings, and events — in other words, a delay not only leads to loss of time but loss of money as well.

This is why EU Regulation No. 261/2004 was created. Shortened to EC 261, it’s a law that protects air passengers by making the airlines financially responsible for flight delays and other disruptions that they are responsible for.

According to EC 261, Airport cancellations and delays could qualify for up to US$700 compensation as the airport is located in the EU. Your nationality doesn’t matter — if your flight departed from the EU zone or was to the EU with an EU airline, it’s covered. Flights to the outermost regions of the EU are covered too, including the Canary Islands, French Guiana, the Azores, and Madeira.
