EC Regulation 261/2004 – Iberia Flight Passengers Rights

EC Regulation 261/2004 (dated 17 February 2005) applies to air passengers departing from any EU airport, or from a non-EU airport with an EU airline to an EU destination. Passengers must note that flight delay compensation is subject to certain conditions and exceptions.

There will be no compensation for a delay or cancellation caused by an extraordinary circumstance, under which such delay or cancellation becomes 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 the Regulation. This entitlement is when the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances.

If you are an air passenger travelling with Iberia airline and your flight has been delayed or cancelled (without any prior notice) or for reasons which could have been easily solved then according to Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, Iberia flight passengers can claim up to 600€ as flight delay compensation. This takes into account distance that you travelled both within Europe and Outside Europe and the time for flight delay which should be more than 3 hours.

Within EU:

  1. If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you can claim up to 250€
  2. And over 1,500 km, you can claim up to 400€

Between EU Airport And Non-EU Airport:

  1. If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you can claim up to 250€
  2. If the distance is between 1,500 – 3,500 km, then you can claim up to 400€
  3. 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, EU 261 Rule won’t apply to you. It is only applied in the case of EU based flights travelling within Europe or to or from an EU Member State.

Am I Eligible To Claim Compensation?

EC Regulation 261/2004 is a European Union Regulation, it applies to EU and Non-EU airspace. You do not have to be an EU citizen to claim flight compensation.

This means that you can claim on flights departing from any airport located in the EU (with any airline) or arriving in the EU (with an EU airline).

Thus you are eligible to claim compensation for flights departed or which were scheduled to depart from an EU airport.
