How much compensation will I receive for denied boarding?
The flight was overbooked and you weren’t allowed to board or you were allocated to another flight?
If so, it was a case of denied boarding against your will. For denied boarding against your will, you are entitled to the following compensation:
€250 for flights up to 1500 km
€400 for flights within the EU longer than 1500 km
€400 for flights longer than 1500 km up to 3500 km to destinations outside the EU
Up to €600 for other flights
Please also note that this includes not only flights leaving the EU but also flights destined for the EU, provided they are operated by an EU carrier.
