Air Europa Flight Delays and Cancellations
Delays and cancellation of flights can be caused due to natural calamity like bad weather, earthquake or due to the airlines turning blind eye to issues that can be easily kept in check. EU Law 261/2004 allows a passenger to claim compensation up to 600€ for flight delays and flight cancellations or denied boarding due to Air Europa’s fault which could have been easily avoided. For claiming reimbursement for the delay, one has to make sure that they satisfy the following conditions:
- The delay or cancellation is not due to natural calamity or acts of god
- The delay caused should be for the distance 1500 km traveled and more than 3 hours late
- The flight should be an EU registered flight and should be traveling either within Europe or traveling to or from Europe. EU registered flights flying between countries outside Europe do not qualify for this

EC Regulation 261/2004

There will be no compensation for delays or cancellations caused by an extraordinary circumstance, under which such delays or cancellations become 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 EU Regulation 261 of 2004. This entitlement is when the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances.

This takes into account the distance that you travel.
- If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you can claim up to 250€
