Flight Delays Compensation and Qatar Airways
Flight delays can lead to compensation against Qatar Airways if, for instance, your flight from Heathrow to non EU Airport by more than 3 hours or more. The other criteria for passengers to make a claim are as follows:
- Qatar Airways flight delay was within the last 6 years
- Qatar Airways flight delay was not due to an “exceptional circumstance.”
Even though the Airline Company is not EU based, providing that the Airline departs from a UK based airport, the EU flight delay Regulations apply and thus if there is a delay of 3 hours or more, compensation can be obtained. No delayed flight compensation against Qatar Airways can be obtained if the flight was returning back to the UK from a non-EU Country.

Flight Delay Compensation Qatar Airways Claim Form
Flight delays compensation and “exceptional circumstances.”
It was thought by Airlines that if the flight delays were due to mechanical or electrical failures which could not routinely be detected by the usual service and maintenance of the aircraft.
This argument was put to the test in court but the airlines failed. Even if it was a mechanical fault with the plane, it did not stop the chance to make a flight delay compensation claim against Qatar Airways or other Airline Companies that breach the EU Regulations.
The exceptional circumstances can be summarised as follows:
- Volcanic Ash Cloud,
- Traffic Control Strikes,
- Political Unrest,
As such examples are completely outside Qatar Airways control, compensation for flight delays can be obtained
