Refunds, Reimbursement, and Compensation: Aeroflot

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 $650 (€600) per person in Aeroflot compensation, in addition to your right to a refund or reimbursement. That's because of an EU law which allows passengers to claim flight cancellation or Aeroflot delay compensation. AirHelp can quickly confirm what you're owed — and make claiming it off Aeroflot simple!

Aeroflot Flight Delay Compensation

Any Aeroflot 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. In some cases, such as when your delay turns into a cancellation, you may also request a refund of your ticket — especially if the replacement flight no longer suits your travel goals.

But more than that, if Aeroflot 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 Aeroflot flight delay compensation. Don’t miss out on up to $650 per person.

We make claiming compensation for Aeroflot flight delays as easy as possible. Our free Compensation Calculator, 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.

Aeroflot cancelled Flight Compensation

In Europe, EC 261 protects all passengers in the event of flight cancellations, especially last-minute flight cancellations.

Passengers due to depart from a European airport are always entitled to a full refund if their flight is cancelled and Aeroflot can't offer an acceptable replacement. Additionally, for any Aeroflot flight cancellation less than 14 days before the flight, passengers may also be eligible for Aeroflot flight cancellation compensation, up to $650 per person.

That's unless there were some kind of extraordinary circumstances which gave Aeroflot 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 Aeroflot 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 $650 in compensation if your flight has been delayed, cancelled, or overbooked within the last 3 years.

Flight Compensation and Air Passenger Rights

Even though Aeroflot 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 Aeroflot 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, Aeroflot cancellation compensation, or overbooking compensation if Aeroflot is responsible for the issue. That's in addition to their rights to a flight refund.

Unfortunately, the same protections don't apply for flights going the other way. Aeroflot 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.

Can I get a refund and compensation if my Aeroflot flight was cancelled due to coronavirus?

Generally, no — you can only get a refund for your flight ticket after a cancellation as coronavirus is an extraordinary circumstance and therefore is not eligible for compensation.
