Eu Regulation 261/2004
EU Regulation 261/2004 makes rules for compensation applicable to all flights that originate from an EU destination. These norms are applicable in cases of flight delay compensation, flight cancellation compensation and denied boarding compensation. Where United Airlines flights fly from EU destination they are covered by the regulation and bound to pay compensation under it to passengers.
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 travelled with United Airlines 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, United Airlines flight passengers can claim up to 600€ as flight delay compensation. This takes into account the distance of your flight both within Europe and Outside Europe and the time of flight 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, 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.
Know your rights & make your claim successful with Claim Flights
As an airline passenger, you have certain rights which you should be aware of. Under EC Regulation 261/2004, you are entitled to claim compensation for any delayed or cancelled flights in any country under the European Union (EU). However, airline companies can deny any claim if the delay or cancellation happened due to an ‘act of God’. This is a tricky ground as there are several instances where the same cause can and cannot be claimed as an ‘act of God’.
In case of instances where the airline company had no control over the reason for flight delay or flight cancellation and thus they are not liable to pay any compensation But as an individual, it is unlikely that you will be aware of the finer details of EC 261/2004 Regulation and hence can lose out to airline companies in claiming compensation.
