It's frustrating when a flight delay or cancellation causes havoc with your travels. If your flight was departing from a European airport, we have good news for you — you could be owed up to 600€ per person in Latam Airlines Group compensation. That's because of an EU law which allows passengers to claim flight cancellation or Latam Airlines Group delay compensation. AirHelp can quickly confirm what you're owed — and make claiming it off Latam Airlines Group simple!
Latam Airlines Group Flight Delay Compensation
Any Latam Airlines Group flight departing from a European airport must conform to the European law which protects air passengers in the event of flight delays.
This law, known as EC 261, says that airlines must provide passengers with food, drink, and access to communication when they're delayed. They must also offer accommodation and replacement flights if necessary.
But more than that, if Latam Airlines Group is responsible for the flight delay, the law says that they must compensate passengers when the flight is delayed by 3 hours or more. All the details are included in our guide to flight delay compensation.
So if you arrive at your destination over 3 hours late, it's always worth checking if you're owed Latam Airlines Group flight delay compensation. Don’t miss out on up to 600€ per person.
We make claiming compensation for Latam Airlines Group flight delays as easy as possible. Our compensation check tool, together with our air passenger rights experts, will confirm your delay time, and make sure there are no extraordinary circumstances which impact your eligibility. You can usually claim for flights from as far back as 3 years ago.

Latam Airlines Group Canceled Flight Compensation
In Europe, EC 261 protects all passengers in the event of flight cancellations, especially last-minute flight cancellations.
If there's any Latam Airlines Group flight cancellation less than 14 days before the flight was due to depart from a European airport, passengers may be eligible for Latam Airlines Group flight cancellation compensation, up to 600€ per person.
That's unless there were some kind of extraordinary circumstances which gave Latam Airlines Group no choice but to cancel the flight. The law accepts that airlines should only pay compensation when they are at fault — but they must still ensure passengers reach their final destination or get a full refund for the flight.
Airlines like Latam Airlines Group also don't need to pay compensation if they're able to offer an alternative flight that arrives at a very similar time to the original one. The specific time limits are included in our flight cancellation compensation guide.
Claim up to 600€ in compensation if your flight has been delayed, canceled, or overbooked within the last 3 years.

Flight Compensation and Air Passenger Rights
Even though Latam Airlines Group is not a European airline, they always comply with European laws every time they depart from a European airport. That means passengers flying out of a European airport with Latam Airlines Group are protected by EC 261, one of the world's most comprehensive air passenger rights laws.
This gives passengers the right to claim flight delay compensation, Latam Airlines Group cancellation compensation, or overbooking compensation if Latam Airlines Group is responsible for the issue.
Unfortunately, the same protections don't apply for flights going the other way. Latam Airlines Group passengers who land in the EU are not covered by EC 261 if the departure airport is outside the EU. For these flights, you'll need to check what other air passenger rights apply.
