What your Air Passenger Rights say about Delays in Stavanger Airport

If you experience lengthy Stavanger Airport delays or cancellations, your flight could be eligible for compensation. This is because Stavanger Airport (SVG) 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.
