Austrian Airlines Flight Cancellation Compensation

In the event of any Austrian Airlines flight cancellation, Europe's air passenger rights laws are clear: Austrian Airlines must offer you alternative transport to your destination, or a refund if that's what you'd prefer.

In addition, if you were told about the cancellation less than 14 days before you were due to depart you may also be able to claim up to $700 per person in compensation.

Generally speaking, when Austrian Airlines cancels flights, they'll attempt to rebook passengers straight away onto another flight at no additional charge. You can request further changes if the alternative flight doesn’t work for you, or if you no longer wish to travel that route.

If Austrian Airlines can book you onto a new flight that lands at a similar time to your original they won't have to pay you compensation. This is fair, as you'll get to your destination with minimum disruption to your plans. However in a lot of cases, passengers whose flights are cancelled at the last minute have valid claims to Austrian Airlines cancelled flight compensation.

That's unless the cancellation was caused by an event Austrian Airlines can't be expected to control — something like bad weather conditions, or an incident at the airport. These events are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.

Flight Compensation and Air Passenger Rights

Because Austrian Airlines has its headquarters within the EU, almost all the flights they offer are protected by EC 261, one of the world's most comprehensive air passenger rights laws.

The EC 261 regulation gives passengers the right to claim for compensation when they have suffered delayed, cancelled or overbooked flights, which are no fault of their own. Passengers are also entitled to claim for past flights — often you can still claim for flights in the past 3 years.
