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.

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.

  • 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
