Flight Delay Compensation

Flight Delay Compensation

As a European air passenger you are entitled to flight delay compensation when your flight is delayed by 3 hours or more.

How much flight delay compensation you are entitled to will depend on:

  • The distance of the planned flight
  • The amount of time you are delayed by
  • Whether you are flying to a destination that inside or outside of the EU

Are you Entitled to a Flight Delay Claim?

In extraordinary circumstances such as a crew strike or bad weather, you will not be entitled to claim compensation from the airline.

However, if this is not the case, then a flight delay claim can be undertaken.

Use the delayed flight compensation table below to work out how much you are entitled to:

Flight distance Delay on arrival Compensation
Up to 1,500km 3 hours or more £220 / €250
1,500km - 3,500km 3 hours or more £355 / €400
Over 3,500km 3 to 4 hours £265 / €300
Over 3,500km 4 hours or more £530 / €600

*Amounts as set by EU Regulation 261/2004

**Euro and Pound Exchange rate is subject to change
