Flight Delay Compensation

There is no doubt that everyone has experienced trouble with flight delays at some point. Going to the airport isn’t always the smooth-sailing experience it is made out to be. Delays can cause stress, hassle and frustration and there is no ‘quick fix’ that will be able to help in this situation. Many people are unaware that if a flights cancelled or delayed for a period longer than 3 hours, it is possible that you may be eligible to claim compensation from the airline in question.

Here at Sarah Waddington Solicitors, we specialise in flight delay claims in accordance with EU regulation 261/2004 and our experts are here to make it easy for you to get the compensation you deserve. We understand that for many people making a claim against an airline can be a daunting experience. Flight delays take place every second of the day and so, it is more than likely that thousands of people are due compensation.

How much compensation am I due?

The annual number of flights arriving and departing from the UK is increasing each year, meaning that the amount of delays taking place is rapidly growing daily. There are several factors that affect the amount of compensation you could be worth, the main one being the distance your flight covers, as well as the hours the flight is delayed for.

Generally, the longer the flight the higher the compensation and that is why, being aware of the time you were delayed for is a crucial part of the compensation claim process. As an example, if you fly within the EU over 1500km and your flight is delayed for more than 3 hours, you could be entitled to up to €400 per passenger in compensation. And if your flight is over 3500km, the compensation you’re due can be as high as receiving €600 back for each passenger who was delayed.

If the delay or cancellation has been caused by an ‘extraordinary circumstance’ – it is more than likely that you won’t receive compensation as the airlines don’t take responsibility and you aren’t entitled to claim. Security risks, severe weather conditions, manufacturing recalls and acts of terrorism are some of the main categories that are classed as an extraordinary circumstance.
