Aer Lingus Cancelled Flight Compensation
Flights get delayed, flights get cancelled. Aer Lingus is no exception in this case. There are many reasons why cancellations can happen. If this happened to you, Regulation (EC) 261/2004 makes it the duty of Aer Lingus to either book you another flight at no cost to you. Of course, certain airlines want to add various conditions to that, but that’s how it’s supposed to go. If you don’t like the rerouting you can do it yourself, via the airline’s website. Do note that if you want to take a flight that was more expensive than your previous one, you will have to pay the difference in addition to things like handling charges and rebooking fees.
What you should also know that the same regulation also stipulates that if the airline cancelled your flight without a 14-day notice or a rebooking option, you can claim flight compensation! EC261 states that the airlines have to make channels available for claiming compensation. However, those channels may not be easily accessible and the airlines might not be inclined to pay. That where Skycop steps in.
If you fill a cancelled flight claim at Skycop, you hand over the hard process of getting flight compensation to our team of professionals. We will deal with everything the airline can throw at us. We know the law and we have a lot of experience fighting the airlines.
That said, there are exceptions – “extraordinary circumstances” – when it comes to paying compensation. If the cancellation was caused by something that can’t be blamed on the airlines – terrible weather, strikes at the airport, war and so on – Aer Lingus doesn’t have to pay. However, most of the time, it’s a lot less clear cut and an airline might try to get away without paying – even if they should.
So check your flight at Skycop.com – our system will carry out a preliminary check of your flight’s eligibility for compensation – as well as its size! Once you claim flight compensation via Skycop, the rest will be handled by our team of professionals. You’ll be able to just relax and wait for the news!
