You have the right to compensation and assistance under EU Regulations 261/2004, which establishes general rules for compensation and assistance to passengers in the event of denied boarding and cancellation or long delay of flights, only if you have registered on a timely basis for any flight from an airport located in the territory of the European Union or from an airport outside the EU to an EU airport operated by an EU airline (including charter flights).
If your flight was disturbed, you can receive flight compensation in two ways:
- Directly from the airline – upon request, you will have to write a claim in English and contact the airline directly. The most likely option – it will simply reject your claim. So you may have to take actions to court. According to statistics, only 5% of directly claiming applicants succeed in claiming compensation.
- Applying to professionals – an easier way to claim is to access SKYCOP specialists. Not only will we fill in all the required forms, we will administer and supervise the recovery process and, if necessary, represent your interests in court, but we will also significantly increase the probability of getting compensation for the flight.
