Your rights as an airline passenger

Your rights as a European airline passenger are laid down in Regulation 261/2004. This regulation is only applicable within the European Union. Regulation 261/2004 can only be called upon when:

When your flight is delayed two hours or more, the airline is obliged to provide food, drink and, if necessary, hotel accommodation. If this is not provided, you can claim the costs back from the airline.

Right to compensation

Does your flight fall under European regulations and did you arrive at your final destination with more than three hours’ delay? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of time. If the the flight delay was due to an extraordinary circumstance, you are not entitled to compensation. When ‘extraordinary circumstances’ apply, the airline can show that they were not responsible for the delay. Examples of such circumstances are bad weather conditions and acts of terrorism.

Amount of compensation

If your flight falls under EU Regulation 261/2004, the amount of compensation you are entitled to is based on the distance of the flight.

Our success stories


Flight delayed for about 5 hours, but the airline was claiming a delayed departure time that was not accurate. I had no access to official records in order to rebut this so I contacted EUclaim.
