What I Need to Make a Delayed Flight Compensation Claim

The right to claim are set out below:

  1. Was the flight delayed by more than 3 hours?
  2. Was the delayed flight the airline’s fault?
  3. Was your delayed flight booked within the last 6 years?
  4. Does your delayed flight from an EU Airport or EU Airline?
  5. Did you check-in on time for your flight?

If you answer in the affirmative to each question, it is highly likely you have a delayed flight compensation claim.

The 3 Hour flight delay Rule

A flight delay of 3 hours or more is required before a delayed flight claim can be made. This is the minimum requirement but there is a payout to passengers for refreshments etc if the delayed flight was more than 2 hours.

How much compensation for a delayed flight?

This is dependent upon the amount of the delay and the length of the delay. The longer the delay and distance the greater the compensation payment. Examples are as follows:

  • Delayed Flight compensation 3+ hours:from London to France – distance less than 1500 Km £200 approx per person
  • Delayed Flight compensation 3+ hours from Manchester to Spain – distance more than 1500 km – £310 approx per person
  • Delayed Flight compensation 3-4 hours:from London to America – distance more than 1500 km – £240 approx per person
  • Delayed Flight compensation 4+ hours:from London to Australia – distance more than 1500 km – £480 approx per person
