Flight Compensation Claims

Whether you are flying for business or pleasure, long delays are something that put a dampener on anyone’s trip. Waiting hours upon end in an airport with little else to do other than browse the duty free is something we hope to avoid.

Since February 2005 have you ever suffered delays at an airport, saw your flight cancelled or been denied boarding because your flight was overbooked? If so you could be entitled to claim Delayed Flight Compensation .

Under the EU Denied Boarding Regulations you are entitled to claim compensation if you were denied boarding, suffer delays or if your flight was cancelled; as long as was the airlines fault.

The circumstances were you can claim as the delay or cancellation was caused by the airline include:

  •  Flight crew ill, late or no show
  • Technical problems that should have been detected through routine maintenance
  • Over booked flight meaning you were ‘bumped off’ the flight
  • Under booked flight so the airline chose not to fly
  • Airline failing to submit necessary documentation on time


‘Extraordinary circumstances’ were you can’t claim as the delay or cancellation was not caused by the airline include:

  •  Adverse weather
  • Industrial action
  • Political issues
  • Security/Safety issues
  • Air traffic control decision
  • Technical fault caused by the plane manufacturer (eg: Boeing, Airbus)
