If you are looking for Air Greenland delay compensation or Air Greenland cancellation compensation, you’ve come to the right place. AirHelp is the world's leading air passenger rights organization and has won more claims than anyone else. Let us get you the money you’re owed.
If you discover that your trip is going to be affected by Air Greenland flight delays, be sure to brush up on your air passenger rights so that you know what to do during the wait and ask for what is owed to you.
Firstly, you’ll need to check whether or not you are eligible for flight delay compensation with Air Greenland. According to EC 261, the EU air passenger rights law, flights that were delayed by more than 3 hours may qualify for compensation. This means that you can get up to $700 (€600) per person if you arrive at your destination more than 3 hours late — regardless of your actual departure time. The amount you’re eligible for varies depending on the length of the delay and the travel distance.
If it wasn’t already announced, be sure to also ask Air Greenland what the cause of the delay was. You’re only owed compensation if the airline was responsible for the delay. Otherwise, if the delay was unavoidable and outside of the airline’s control, no compensation is owed.
Some common examples of unavoidable situations include severe weather conditions, natural calamities such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, political unrest, medical emergencies, and safety or security risks. Naturally, in these cases, the safety of the passengers comes first.
If you’re unsure whether you are eligible or not, AirHelp can make the process of claiming Air Greenland flight delay compensation easy and stress-free. Our Compensation Check Tool can confirm what you're owed within minutes.

Air Greenland flight cancellation is no joke — a cancellation can completely ruin your travel plans and cause you to miss out on important events, meetings, tours, and hotel bookings. And if your flight was cancelled while you’re abroad, you could even be left stranded.
To discourage airlines from canceling flights, EC 261, an air passenger rights law in the EU, requires them to pay a set amount of compensation per passenger. You’re owed Air Greenland cancelled flight compensation if the disruption was the airline’s fault, and if the flight was cancelled less than 2 weeks before it was scheduled to depart.
However, you are not owed compensation if you were given a replacement flight that arrives at a similar time to your original flight. Though the flight changed, you still arrived at your destination as scheduled, which means that Air Greenland will not have to pay compensation.

Air Greenland is headquartered in Europe, which means almost all passengers flying with them are protected by EC 261. EC 261 is one of the most comprehensive air passenger rights laws in the world and offers travelers a great deal of protection.
All Air Greenland flights that depart from or arrive at a European airport are covered by EC 261. Air passengers traveling with them can, therefore, claim compensation in cases of cancellations, delays, or overbooking, provided that the airline is at fault.
Even past flights are covered — in most cases, you can claim for compensation up to 3 years after the disruption occurred.
