EC Regulation 261/2004
EC Regulation 261/2004 (dated 17 February 2005) applies to 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/cancellation caused by an 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.
Nevertheless, if there is a delay of more than 4 hours for a flight of 3500 kms or more; delay of 3 hours or more in intra-community flight of 1500 kms or more; and delay of 2 hours in case of flight of 1500 kms or less, the passenger is entitled to compensation under EU norms as set by the Regulation. This entitlement is when the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances. If the delay is more than 5 hours, the passenger is entitled to cancel his reservation and claim compensation.
The thumb of the rule for both delayed flights and cancelled flights is 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.
