Plane delay compensation

Plane delay compensation claims are now approved by the Supreme Court. Delayed plane compensation could lead up to £thousands for families or groups going on holiday. A full refund can be obtained so don’t be left out of pocket – make sure you know your rights! You’re protected by the Denied Boarding Regulation if you’re flying with an EU based airline, or a non-EU airline flying from an EU airport.

Claim Plane Delay Compensation Now:

Just answer Yes to all of the following 4 questions-

Question 1. Did your plane take off within the last 6 years?

Question 2. Was your plane delayed by more than 3 hours?

Question 3. Did the plane depart in an EU Country?

Question 4. Was the cause of the plane delay was the airline’s fault?

If you answer Yes to all of the above you will have a right to make a claim for compensation for plane delays. Do not forget, it is not just you that can claim but everyone who flew with you on the plane!

What is the Denied Boarding Regulation?

The regulation states that the airline has an obligation to offer you assistance if your plane delay is expected to go beyond a certain point. If you’re travelling with a non-EU based airline flying from a non-EU destination, the airline doesn’t have the same duty to look after you, so you cannot make a plane delay compensation claim.

The Denied Boarding Regulations applies if:

• You have a confirmed booking.
• You checked in on time, or if no check-in time was given, then at least 45 minutes before your flight was scheduled to depart.
• You’re departing from an EU airport.

• If a plane within the EU that is travelling more than 932 miles (for example, London to Athens) is delayed for at least 3hours.
• If a plane that isn’t within the EU but is travelling between 932 and 2,174 miles is delayed for at least three hours.
• If any other plane is delayed for at least four hours.
