Claim Compensation

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.

In case passengers are not able to claim compensation from the airlines, we can help the Airline Passenger to get their money owed by the airlines. Our delayed flight compensation calculator can be used to calculate the amount you can claim from the airlines by providing some information about your flights, i.e., flight number, flight date and reason of flight delay or cancellation. You may need to enter further details about yourself & co-passengers for whom you would like to claim the compensation from the airlines.
