What happens if your connection flight delay causes you to miss your flight?

Connection flight delay
If a delay causes you to miss the connection, then the airline must provide meals and accommodation, and put you on the next available flight – and possibly pay you €400 in compensation for an arrival delay of three hours or more, if it is something within the airline’s control, such as a technical issue.   Contact our team today to help you recover your compensation on a NO win NO fee basis.

If you booked a package holiday – i.e. with a hotel and/or car rental as well as your flight – and things do go wrong, you may be able to claim some compensation based on the proportion of your trip that was lost.  Please see the original article, click here.
Reclaiming compensation depends on how late you arrive at the final destination. If you fly to Cape Town via Johannesburg and the first leg arrives two hours late so that you miss the on-time connecting flight – arriving four hours late at your final destination – that counts.

However, if you booked those two flights separately, then as the first flight wasn’t more than three hours delayed, and your second flight wasn’t delayed at all, you’re not entitled to anything.  However contact us today to see if you are entitled to any compensation
