Turkish Airlines Flight Cancellation Compensation

Regardless of whether you're at home or abroad when you find out about your Turkish Airlines flight cancellation, you're going to have a lot of questions and concerns. The first thing to know is that Turkish Airlines should find you a new flight, or offer you a full refund.

But because flight cancellations almost always play havoc with your travel plans, you should check whether you're also entitled to claim Turkish Airlines cancelled flight compensation to help make up for the disruption.

Under UK and EU regulations, Turkish Airlines should pay passengers up to €600 per person when they cancel flights at late notice — that is, any flight cancellation less than 14 days before it was due to depart.

Turkish Airlines will not have to pay compensation if they were able to offer a replacement flight with similar departure and arrival times to the original. You can check the exact requirements on our flight cancellation compensation page.

Airlines also don't have to pay compensation if extraordinary circumstances were at play. That means that if an unusual situation occurred that was outside of the airline's control but forced a cancellation, there's no Turkish Airlines flight cancellation compensation owed. Typical examples include bad weather or a strike by air traffic control.

Turkish Airlines Flight Delay Compensation

Whenever you're kept waiting by Turkish Airlines flight delays, it's worth checking whether you're entitled to compensation for your time. If Turkish Airlines is responsible for the delay, both UK and EU regulations say that passengers are owed up to €600 per person when they're delayed by 3 hours or more.

When you're claiming flight delay compensation, Turkish Airlines will check what time the flight arrived at the final destination. That's because for flight delay claims it is the time that you arrived that is important, not the time of departure. AirHelp owns one of the most comprehensive databases of flight stats available, so we can always back up Turkish Airlines flight delay compensation claims with the exact delay time.

Airlines like Turkish Airlines do not have to pay out compensation if there's some external reason for the delay. That means delays caused by bad weather, an incident at the airport, or air traffic control strikes are not eligible for compensation. These kind of situations are called extraordinary circumstances.

You can learn more about what is and isn't included on our flight delay compensation page.

Claim up to €600 in compensation if your flight has been delayed, canceled, or overbooked within the last 3 years.

Air Passenger Rights and Flight Compensation

Europe's air passenger rights, EC 261, are among the most comprehensive in the world. They are designed to ensure airlines like Turkish Airlines take appropriate care of their passengers and compensate passengers fairly when their journeys are disrupted by flight delays, cancellations, or overbookings.

All passengers on a flight departing from a European airport are covered by EC 261. However, as Turkish Airlines is not a European airline, they do not need to pay EC 261 compensation when they are flying outside of Europe, or even on flights to Europe if the departure airport is outside the EU.

Which Turkish Airlines Flights are Covered by EC 261?
