EU Regulation 261/2004
EU Regulation 261/2004 makes rules for compensation applicable to all flights that originate from an EU destination. These norms are applicable for flight delays of over 3 hours, flight cancellations, and denied boarding cases. Where Air Algerie flights fly from EU destination they are covered by the Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004 and are bound to pay compensation under it to the passengers.
Passengers must note that compensation for flight delay is subject to certain conditions and exceptions. There will be no compensation for a delay/cancellation caused by extraordinary circumstances, under which such delay/cancellation becomes unavoidable. Examples of such situations include 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 kms or more; delay of 3 hours or more in intra-community flight of 1500 kms or more; and delay of 2 hours in case of flight of 1500 kms or less, the passenger is entitled to compensation under EU norms as set by the Regulation. This entitlement is when the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances. If the delay is more than 5 hours, the passenger is entitled to cancel his reservation and claim compensation.
The thumb of the rule for both delayed flights and cancelled flights are as follows:
- Flights of 1500 kms or less: compensation amount is 250 euros.
- Flights of 1500 kms to 3500 kms: compensation amount is 400 euros.
- Flights of more than 3500 kms: compensation amount is 600 euros.
Thanks to the regulation, passengers need not worry as flight delay or cancellation compensation claim norms are in place. If you want to travel by any airlines, you may be rest assured in case of flight delays or gets cancelled; your interests will be protected.
