When Are You Entitled To Swiss Airlines Flight Compensation?
Many unfortunate circumstances mean you are eligible for Swiss Airlines compensation. If you experience the inconvenience of delayed flights, disruptions, lost baggage or cancellation, you could be entitled to a refund. You could claim Swiss Air delayed baggage compensation if your luggage does not reach your destination on time.
If your flight is disrupted by circumstances under the airline’s control, you could begin a Swiss Air compensation claim. Common flight disruptions include tarmac delays or airport congestion.
If Swiss Airlines fails to notify you of a schedule change within 14 days, you could be eligible for Swiss delayed flight compensation. If the departure time was changed on the day of travel then the airline is at fault.
Under EU regulation 261, Swiss Airlines should pay passengers up to €600 for a cancelled flight. If the flight is cancelled less than 14 days before it is due to depart, the traveller can submit a Swiss Air claim.
Airlines will claim that delays and cancellations are due to circumstances beyond their control (often called extraordinary circumstances). This is often true, but in many cases, the airline is at fault and should pay Swiss compensation for a cancelled flight to the affected passengers.
