Malmö Airport (MMX) is an international airport in Skåne, Sweden. It is located north of the E65 highway outside Svedala, in the municipality of Börringe, Svedala. It was opened in 1972 as a replacement for Bulltofta Airport in Malmö, which was closed. Today, Malmö Airport is the fourth largest airport in Sweden with around 20 airlines.

In which cases is there a right to compensation?

Any flight that arrives at its destination with a delay of at least 3 hours, is canceled less than 14 days before arrival or is denied boarding is entitled to compensation, provided that the causes of the unforeseen event are attributable to the airline and fall within the scope of UK regulations. In exceptional circumstances, the airline is exempt from paying compensation.

Passengers departing from a UK airport, or flying to the UK from a non-UK airport on an EU/EEA or UK air carrier, as well as passengers flying to the EU/EEA from a non-EU/EEA airport on a UK air carrier, are protected under UK261 Regulation. The amount of compensation does not depend on the price of the ticket or the reason for the trip, and the claims apply to flights that are no more than 6 years old. Important: Do not let your airline excuse you! Hotel or meal vouchers or gift vouchers do not release the airline from paying your compensation.

In these cases, it is possible to claim compensation:

  • Delays: Your flight has arrived at its destination more than 3 hours late.
  • Cancellations: You were informed of the cancellation less than 14 days before departure.
  • Overbooking: The airline overbooks your flight and you can no longer find a seat on board.
  • Missed connecting flight: You miss your connecting flight and reach your final destination with a delay of 3 hours or more.

The amount of compensation depends on the flight distance:

  • Short-haul flights – less than 1500 km – £220 compensation for affected passengers.
  • Medium-haul flights – between 1500 km and 3500 km – entitlement to £350 compensation per passenger
  • Long-haul flights – more than 3500 km – entitlement to £520 compensation for the affected passengers

Delayed, canceled, overbooked, missed connecting flight? You are entitled to:

What are my passenger rights if my flight is canceled due to a strike at Malmo Airport?

If your flight is due to depart from Malmo Airport and there is a strike at the airport in question, first check whether your flight is affected by the cancelations due to the strike. According to the UK Passenger Rights Regulation, you are entitled to alternative transportation or a refund of the ticket price. You may also be entitled to compensation if there are no extraordinary circumstances and it is an internal airline strike, for example. Contact your airline for more information about replacement transportation, rebooking or ticket refunds, as well as local services such as meals and, if necessary, accommodation and transportation to the hotel.

Can I receive flight compensation if my flight at Malmo Airport is delayed or canceled due to a strike?

A flight cancellation or a significant delay of more than three hours due to a strike is often considered an extraordinary circumstance, provided the strike is not the fault of the airline or the airline’s staff. There is no entitlement to compensation in exceptional circumstances. Nevertheless, passengers should check their rights to basic care and catering services at Malmo Airport. This includes meals, refreshments and, if necessary, accommodation, depending on the length of the delay and the flight route.
