Your right to compensation
If you arrived at your end destination with a delay of three hours or more, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of time. Regulation 261/2004 has been active within the European Union since 2005 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 delayed or cancelled. Both legislations protect your rights as an airline passenger and determines the obligations of the airline.
Example: Your flight is delayed and you arrive at your destination over three hours late. In this case, you are entitled to compensation for your loss of time.
The amount of compensation is based on the distance of the flight. Regulation 261/2004 and The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 set out the following amounts:
- €250 (£220)* compensation for a cancelled flight up to 1,500 km
- €400 (£350)* compensation for a cancelled flight exceeding 1,500 km
- €600 (£520)* compensation for a cancelled flight exceeding 3,500 km
* The route with which you flew and the airline that performed the airline are key in determining if your will fall with the scope of the EC 261 regulation (and be entitled to Euro’s) or the The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (and be entitled to GBP).
Did you arrive at your destination with a delay between three and four hours for a flight with a distance of 3,500 km or more? Then, according to the Sturgeon ruling, you are entitled to 50% of the compensation amount.
If the airline can prove there were ‘extraordinary circumstances’ and that they were not responsible for the delay, you are not entitled to compensation. If you’re not sure whether you are entitled to compensation, you can contact us for free advice.
