About Air Passenger Rights at Frankfurt Airport

Most air travelers using Frankfurt Airport (FRA) are protected by European air passenger rights law (EU Regulation No. 261/2004). That's because under EC 261 it doesn't matter where you're from, you just need to have departed from an EU airport, or to have flown into one on an EU airline. The regulation also covers the EEA and 'outermost regions', like the Azores, Canary Islands, and Guadalupe.

That means that if your airline was responsible for the delays at Frankfurt Airport, you're owed a payout of up to US$700 per person.

The law applies to previous delayed and canceled flights too - typically you can claim for flights from up to 3 years ago.
