This summer, millions of soccer fans have been traveling to Russia to watch the World Cup. As supporters are flying out all over the world, the number of packed flights and bustling airports make flight disruptions an inevitable consequence.

That’s why soccer fans flying from the US must know that any flight delay, cancellation or overbooking that occurs on their journey to see the World Cup can mean up to $700 per passenger in compensation, and the same goes for any flight from Russia to the US, if operated by an EU-carrier. Depending on the severity of the disruption, travelers who are left stranded or delayed for longer than three hours have a legal right to compensation.

AirHelp exists to help air passengers, so we’ve created a Russia Live Flight Stats Page dedicated exclusively to flights to and from the cities hosting games. We want to help soccer fans keep track of disruptions while they travel in real time, and begin claiming compensation as soon as they encounter any setbacks at the airport.

Our experts at AirHelp are tracking all flights arriving and departing from Russia across all of the 11 football host cities. We don’t want any single traveling fan to miss out on their share of the billions of dollars in compensation owed to air passengers.

AirHelp will be providing ongoing flight delay information directly from all flights to and from Russia between June 14 and July 15, 2018 including:
