Flight Delay Compensation

In the event that you are forced to wait for your flight for more than three hours you become eligible for flight delay compensation. Airlines are required to inform its customers about their rights as air passengers, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be challenges along the way while trying to collect the compensation that you’re due.

When considering going after compensation, be aware that airlines might slow things down and go the evasive route. TravelRefund’s mission is to help smooth your path to compensation.

In order for you to be an eligible passenger, your flight needs to either take off or land in the EU. The airline also has to be based in the EU. As for the compensation payouts, they range from €250-600, but that will depend on the length of your journey and for how long you were delayed, rather than how much the ticket cost.

  • Short distance flight delays (anything below1500km of travel), call for compensation of €250.
  • Medium distance flight delays (between 1500km and 3500km) points toward passengers being due €400 in compensation.
  • Long distance flight delays (anything over 3500km) calls for compensation of €600 per passenger.
