Don’t you hate delayed flights? There’s nothing worse than having to wait extra hours to go on a flight, even worse it gets cancelled! It can really put a damper on your trip! Sometimes it feels like airlines are doing absolutely nothing to help! If only you could get some of your Monday back, better yet ALL of it back! WELL YOU CAN! Here is how you can grab up to 600 EUR per passenger in flight compensation for all of your troubles!
Are you eligible for flight compensation?
In accordance with EU Regulation 261/2004 a passenger is entitled to 250-600 euros of compensation in case of:
- Your Flight was delayed more than 3 hours
- Unfortunately the flight got cancelled
- When the airline overbooked your flight and Denied you boarding
- Flight 1 was delayed causing you to miss your connecting flight. (you arrived at your destination more than 3 hours later than planned)
There is one requirement for you to file a claim, and that is that the flight happened within the past 6 years. (depending on country of departure)
– within the EU (on any airline)
– leaving the EU (on any airline)
– or arriving into EU (on EU airline)
