Your rights when your British Airways flight is cancelled

Since 2005 Regulation 261/2004 and amended after Brexit to the The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 has been set in place to uphold your rights as airline passenger when you flight is cancelled. When a flight is cancelled you are entitled to compensation up to €600/£520 per person if there are no extraordinary circumstances that apply.

In the case of British Airways, the route of your flight will determine whether you fall within the scope of the EC Regulation 261 or The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’Licensing Regulations 2019.

The airline has a responsibility to inform its passengers in time when a flight is cancelled. The following criteria apply:

Extraordinary circumstances, no right to compensation

Sometimes the airline is not at fault for the flight cancellation and cannot be held responsible. In these events a flight is cancelled due to extraordinary circumstances such as strikes, bad weather, acts of terrorism or medical emergencies. If your flight is cancelled due to extraordinary circumstances you are, unfortunately, not entitled to compensation.

Example: two days before departure British Airways informs you that the flight from London Heathrow to Houston is cancelled due to crew shortness. You depart three hours later than originally planned. In this situation you are entitled to a compensation of £520 per person.

Amount of compensation

When British Airways cancels your flight and doesn’t notify you in time, you could be entitled to compensation. The amount of compensation is based on the distance of your flight:
