Croatia Airlines Flight Cancellation Compensation

In the event of any Croatia Airlines flight cancellation, Europe's air passenger rights laws are clear: Croatia 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 Croatia 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 Croatia 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 canceled at the last minute have valid claims to Croatia Airlines canceled flight compensation.

That's unless the cancellation was caused by an event Croatia 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 Croatia 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, canceled 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.
