EC Regulation 261/2004 (dated 17 February 2005) applies to air passengers departing from any EU airport, or from a non-EU airport with an EU airline to an EU destination. Passengers must note that flight delay compensation is subject to certain conditions and exceptions. There will be no compensation for a delay or cancellation caused by an extraordinary circumstance, under which such delay or cancellation becomes uncontrollable.

An example of such situations includes bad weather or security concerns such as fear of a terror attack. In such situations, passengers will not be given any compensation.

Nevertheless, if there is a delay of more than 4 hours for a flight of 3500 km or more; delay of 3 hours or more in intra-community flight of 1500 km or more; and delay of 3 hours in case of flight under 1500 km, the passenger is entitled to claim compensation under EU norms as set by the Regulation. This entitlement is when the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances.

If you are an air passenger travelled with Aegean Airlines and your flight has been delayed or your booked flight gets cancelled (without any prior notice) or for reasons which could have been easily solved then according to Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, Aegean flight passengers can claim up to 600€ as flight delay compensation. This takes into account the distance of your flight both within Europe and Outside Europe and the time of flight delay which should be more than 3 hours.

Within EU:

  1. If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you can claim up to 250€
  2. And over 1,500 km, you can claim up to 400€

Between EU Airport And Non-EU Airport:

  1. If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you can claim up to 250€

  3. And if the distance is more than 3500 km and flight delays for more than 4 hours, then you can claim up to 600€

Note: If you are travelling to a Non-European country from a Non-European country by a European Flight, EU 261 Rule won’t apply to you. It is only applied in the case of EU based flights travelling within Europe or to or from an EU Member State.
