Flight Cancellation Compensation – All you need to know.

How to claim compensation for your cancelled flight

If your flight is cancelled, we will fight the airline involved on your behalf.  The amount of compensation you may be entitled to is calculated using the following factors:

  •       The distance between the airports of your destination; and
  •       The length of delay the cancellation caused

The reason why the flight was cancelled and the airport you flew from can also be important factors in determining whether you have a claim.

You may be protected by the Denied Boarding Regulations.

In addition to your compensation, you may also be entitled to:

•             Free meals and refreshments

•             Free accommodation and transfers if an overnight stay is required.


Cancellation of the flight before the day of departure.

If your flight is cancelled more than 14 days before the day of departure, you are entitled to a refund but no compensation.

If your flight is cancelled between 7 and 14 days before the day of departure, you may not be entitled to compensation in certain circumstances.

Before you submit your claim to us, please ensure that:

i)             You have your Confirmed Booking Reference.

ii)            You checked in on time or if no check-in time was given, you were at your departure airport at least 45 minutes before your flight was scheduled to depart.

iii)           You departed from an EU Airport or from a non-EU Airport but flying into an EU Airport.
