When am I entitled to compensation?

According to EU Regulation 261/ 2004 airline passengers are entitled to compensation in the event of flight delays and cancellations. This also applies to over-bookings and bumped flights.

Under which circumstances am I entitled to compensation?

There are several possibilities:

  1. You departed from an airport within Europe on any given airline (also includes non-EU airlines) or
  2. You arrived at an airport within Europe on a European airline
  3. Your flight was delayed at least three hours
  4. Your flight did not take place
  5. Your flight was over-booked. As a result there was no seat available
  6. You missed your connecting flight. As a result you arrived at your destination airport with a delay of more than three hours

Who can make a compensation claim?

Any person in the world has the right to lodge a claim for compensation. You do not have to be an EU citizen. The only requirement is that one or more of the above listed scenarios apply.
