EU Regulation 261/2004
EU Regulation 261 of 2004 makes it mandatory for all flights, including Qatar Airways flights, to compensate the passenger for flight delay/cancellation when the flight’s origin is in an EU destination. These norms are applicable in cases of flight delay compensation, flight cancellation compensation, and denied boarding compensation. Where Qatar Airways flights fly from EU destinations, they are covered by the Regulation and bound to pay compensation under it to passengers.
Examples of such situations include bad weather or security concerns such as fear of a terror attack. In such cases, 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 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 travelled with Qatar Airways and your flight has been delayed or your booked flight gets cancelled (without any prior notice), or for reasons which could have been easily solved, then according to Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, Qatar Airways flight passengers can claim up to 600€ as flight delay compensation. This considers the distance of your flight both within Europe and Outside Europe and the flight delay time, 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 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 law, it applies to 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).
Table in right clearly specifies whether you are eligible for compensation for your Alitalia flight delay.
