Statistics show that one in ten Europeans have experienced the inconvenience of travel after seeing “cancelled” on the departures board, or hearing an announcement that their flight was cancelled. Have you had a similar encounter?
Did you know that in this case you may be entitled to flight compensation?
Airlines must inform you of a cancelled flight no later than 14 days before departure date. Otherwise, it is classed as a serious travel disruption and you can apply for compensation. Why not claim the money you are due?
What compensation should I expect?
When a flight is cancelled due to bad weather, you are entitled to:
- obtaining information from the air carrier, for example about your rights as a passenger, about the changes in the situation, the delay or cancellation of the flight;
- be provided with beverages, food, taking into account the waiting time, if necessary, overnight;
- recover the full amount paid for the ticket or alternative trip to the destination.
