Under what conditions is your flight delay with Loganair eligible for compensation?
Based on the 2004 EU261 ruling, the amount of compensation is dependent on the distance of the flight – not on the amount you paid for your ticket. Fundamentally, your flight or replacement transportation has to arrive at its destination with a delay of at least 3 hours.
Additionally, the flight must either take off or land in the European Union. In the latter case, the airline must also have its headquarters in the EU. Your claims are valid up to 6 years, retrospectively. It does not matter whether you took the flight as a business traveler or as part of a package holiday; the person who suffered the inconvenience of the flight disturbance is the one who is eligible to receive the compensation. Don’t take any excuses! Vouchers for food or hotels do not negate the airline’s responsibility to pay your compensation. The airline must be responsible for the flight’s disturbance. Extraordinary circumstances like a strike or bad weather relieve the airline of its responsibility.
When are you entitled to a Loganair delayed flight compensation?
- When there is a flight delay: your flight must have arrived at the destination with more than 3 hours delay than scheduled.
- When there is a flight cancellation: if you were informed of a cancellation less than 14 days before departure.
- When you are overbooked: If the airline overbooks, your flight and you cannot find any more space on board. This is equivalent to a denied boarding.
- When you miss a connecting flight: if the final destination is reached more than 3 hours later due to a missed connecting flight.
Here is an overview of which compensation you’ll be entitled to, based on the circumstances of your delay:
- Short distance flight delays – Below 1500km – Passengers are due €250 compensation from Loganair.
