Your rights in regard to your Ryanair flight cancellation

European Regulation 261/2004 has been in effect since 2005 and it protects your rights as an airline passenger. It states that in the event of a flight cancellation you are entitled to compensation of up to €600 (£535*) per person. For this to apply, your flight must depart from an EU country or arrive in an EU country with a European airline. Ryanair is a European airline, therefore your flight falls under European regulations.

With a cancelled flight, it is important to know when you were informed of the cancellation by Ryanair:

Extraordinary circumstances, no right to compensation

Airline companies often say that a flight is cancelled due to extraordinary circumstances. The Regulation 261/2004 has specified what constitutes ‘extraordinary circumstances’. These include air traffic control strikes, bad weather, acts of terrorism or natural disasters. In these situations you have no right to compensation as an airplane passenger.

Example: You are flying with Ryanair from Eindhoven Airport to Porto. One day before departure, Ryanair cancels your flight due to strike action by French air traffic control. Strike action by a third party is seen as an extraordinary circumstance. In this situation, according to Regulation 261/2004, you would not be entitled to compensation.

Amount of compensation

When Ryanair has not informed you of a cancelled flight in a timely manner, you are entitled to compensation. The amount of compensation is based on the flight distance:

Amount of compensation

Flight destinations within the EU

Flight destinations outside the EU

*Compensation calculated October’17 rate of £1: €1.12 and rounded to the nearest £5.
