What is Flight Compensation?

Flight compensation is a payment that airlines should make to passengers who are delayed for more than three hours later than their scheduled arrival time.

Flight delay compensation is part of EU Regulation 261/2004 and compensation is set in Euros. The amounts vary depending on:

  • The length of the delay
  • The distance of the flight
  • Whether it was delayed, cancelled, or denied boarding

When Can I Claim Flight Compensation?

If you’ve been delayed reaching your final destination airport by more than three hours in the last six years then you could be able to claim up to 600 Euros (about £530 depending on exchange rates) per passenger. The amounts vary depending on the details of your trip.

To be eligible, your flight must be either departing the European Union (EU) or arriving into the EU on a European airline.

This means if your delay was coming back to England from Egypt on easyJet this would be covered under the regulation rules as it is arriving in to the EU on a European airline. If the same journey was on EgyptAir then it wouldn’t be covered as it wasn’t on an EU airline.

A flight leaving England to any location on any airline is covered as you’d be departing from a country within the EU (at least for the time being!)

Our Costs

Our services are 100% no win no fee, meaning there’s no financial risk to you, even if your claim is unsuccessful. We only get paid if you do.

We’re transparent about our fees – for successful claims, we charge 25% + VAT of the total compensation amount plus a £25 per passenger administration fee.

Save time and money over issuing against airlines yourself safe in the knowledge your claim is being handled by a team of legal experts with industry leading success rates.

How Much Can I Claim?

It’s important to remember the flight compensation is not related to the cost of a ticket but is set by Regulation 261/2004 at fixed amounts depending on the length of your flight delay.

You could claim a maximum of 600 Euros or as low as 250 Euros for flight delays. The amounts are differ again for cancellations and denied boarding claims.

Claim amounts vary depending on the distance of the flight and the length of delay

Regulation 261 has capped the compensation at 600 Euros no matter how long the delay lasts for. Claim amounts vary depending on the distance of the flight and the length of delay, we’ve summarised this into a handy little table below.
