EC Regulation 261/2004
EC Regulation 261/2004 (dated 17 February 2005) applies to passengers departing from any EU airport, or from a non EU airport with an EU airline to an EU destination.
Passengers must note that compensation is subject to certain conditions and exceptions. There will be no compensation for a delay/cancellation caused due to extraordinary circumstances. Examples of such situations include extreme bad weather or security concerns such as fear of terror attack.
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. If the delay is more than 5 hours at departure, the passenger is entitled to cancel his reservation and get refund.
The thumb of the rule for both delayed 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/cancellation compensation claim norms are in place. If you want to travel by any airlines, you may be rest assured in case of delayed/cancelled flights; your interests will be protected.
