Flight Delay Rights under EC Regulation 261/2004

EC Regulation 261/2004 (dated 17 February 2005) applies to passengers departing from an EU airport, or from a non-EU airport with an EU airline to an EU destination.

Passengers must note that compensation for delayed flights 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.

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 delayed or cancelled flights; your interests will be protected.
