Experienced A Flight Issue? Our Flight Delay & Cancellation Compensation Calculator Can Help

Flight mishaps, like a flight delay or cancellation, can leave a traveler feeling both financially and emotionally stressed.

When an airline leaves you stuck at the airport — whether your final destination was a relaxing holiday, a crucial business trip, or the comfort of home — you could be entitled to cash compensation of up to $700.

This is due to a European law called EC 261, which enforces the rights of air passengers around the world.

This expansive regulation lists the criteria needed for affected passengers to be eligible to claim for compensation.

It states that regardless of where your home address is, if your flight departed from a European airport or you flew into Europe (from America for example) on a European airline – you could be eligible to make a claim.

But there’s more to it than that. For each flight mishap (e.g. delay or cancellation) — there are different factors to consider that determine if you are entitled to compensation, and if you are — how much you are owed.

For example, to be entitled to flight delay compensation, your flight must be delayed for 3 hours or more.

Then there are “extraordinary circumstances”, where an airline does not have to pay cash compensation if there is a flight issue, as the issue that caused the delay is deemed to be outside the airline’s control.

EC 261 can be difficult to digest — and often, travelers are put off by what they see as confusing legal jargon.

It’s no wonder that only about 66% of all passengers worldwide file for the compensation that they are legally entitled to. Don’t be one of them! AirHelp has an easy solution to make sure you get the cash compensation you are owed.

With our flight delay compensation calculator, you can quickly find out if you are eligible for compensation. Our compensation checker can also be used if your flight has been canceled or overbooked.

If you are entitled to compensation, our flight compensation checker is able to let you know exactly how much you’re owed from the airline.

With our flight delay and cancellation compensation calculator, you don’t have to deal with a flight disruption on your own.
