Flight Delay Claims

Around 10,000 flights are delayed each day by 3 hours or more. That equates to over half a million passengers per day. Under European Legislation any passenger who has been delayed for 3 hours or more anytime in the last 6 years may be entitled to claim compensation.

Any passenger travelling to and from Europe, including connecting flights through Europe, which experience a flight delay for over 3 hours can claim for the delay. You can also clam if there is a cancellation due to the Airline.

Your right to compensation:

  • €250 (£193.00*)for a flight less than 1500 km in distance
  • €400(£309.35*) for a flight within the EU of greater distance than 1500 km or any other flight departing to/from an EU airport of greater than 1500 km but less than 3500 km in distance
  • €600 (£464.08*)for a flight not within EU of greater than 3500 km in distance
