Was your flight cancelled? If so, you may be entitled to compensation. According to Regulation 261/2004, your right to compensation for a flight cancellation depends on the moment you were informed about the cancellation of your flight:
Were you informed of the flight cancellation less than 15 days before departure? Note that you are only entitled to compensation if you were flying from an EU country, or if you were flying from outside of the EU to an EU country with a European airline. Your flight must meet these requirements in order to appeal to European Regulation 261/2004.

There are situations when you are not entitled to compensation for a cancelled flight. When the airline can show that they were not responsible for the cancellation we refer to this as an extraordinary circumstance. Examples of extraordinary circumstances include bad weather conditions, air traffic control strikes and acts of terrorism.
Example: You are informed about the cancellation of your flight four days before departure. Your replacement flight will depart on the same day as your original flight, but one hour earlier than your original departure time. In this situation, you are entitled to compensation.
If your cancelled flight falls under Regulation 261/2004, the amount of compensation is based on the distance of your flight.

If your flight exceeds 3,500 km and your arrival delay is between three and four hours, you are entitled to 50% of the compensation amount.
