Easyjet delayed or cancelled flight rights
For EasyJet flight delays of more than three hours or flight cancellations without prior notification of at least 14 days, EC Regulation 261/2004 entitles you to claim compensation up to 600€ from the airline.
However, sometimes the airline may refuse to pay the compensatory amount, and in turn, will try to ignore your case.
In such cases, you can seek assistance from us. You just have to share your flight number, flight date and reason behind flight disruptions, and our claim experts will claim EasyJet flight delay compensation on behalf of you.
To claim EasyJet cancelled flight compensation, your flight should have been cancelled without any prior notice. If you were notified between 7 to 14 days, the compensation amount gets reduced by 50%.
You can use our service for free until you have received the compensation from EasyJet Airlines, as we work on a “No Win No Fee” policy.
We do not charge any cost unless and until airlines pay back. You can check the exact compensatory amount that you are eligible to claim with our free flight compensation checker.
The claiming process is straightforward and doesn’t take more than 2 minutes of your precious time to submit the claim.
Note: You are eligible for compensation even if you missed your flight connection because your first flight was delayed or cancelled or if you were denied boarding due to overbooking.
EasyJet Passenger Rights under EU 261 rule
EasyJet flight delayed or cancelled or overbooked? You could be entitled to compensation of up to 600€ under European Union Regulation EC 261/2004.
EC Regulation 261/2004 (dated 17 February 2005) applies to airline passengers for flights departing from any EU airport or a non-EU airport booked with EasyJet airline to an EU destination.
Note: For flight delays of 2 or more hours at departure, you should get assistance from the airlines that involve getting vouchers for free food and drinks and access to a minimum of two phone calls and emails. For an overnight delay, airlines should also provide you with hotel accommodation.
If they don’t assist you at the airport, keep receipts of expenses and claim from the airline later. Airlines only pay for ‘reasonable expenses – you won’t get money back for alcohol, expensive meals or luxury hotels. Passengers must note that compensation is subject to certain conditions and exceptions. There will be no compensation for disruptions caused due to extraordinary circumstances under which such delay or cancellation becomes uncontrollable. These exceptional cases include extreme bad weather or strike 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 the 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 compensation under EU norms as set by the Regulation.
If you were booked with EasyJet and your flight was delayed or cancelled, for reasons that could have been easily solved, according to Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, you are eligible for compensation. The amount of compensation varies between 250€ to 600€ based upon the distance travelled and length of the delay, which should be more than 3 hours.
- If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you can claim up to 250€
- And over 1,500 km, you can claim up to 400€
Between EU Airport And Non-EU Airport:
- If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you can claim up to 250€
- If the distance is between 1,500 – 3,500 km, then you can claim up to 400€
And if the distance is more than 3500 km and
- flight delays for more than 4 hours, then you can claim up to 600€
Note: If you are travelling to a Non-European country from a Non-European country by a European Flight, the EU 261 Rule won’t apply to you. It is only applied in EU-based flights travelling within Europe or to or from an EU Member State.
