How to deal with compensation for your delayed flights
Under European law, if you have faced a flight delay of three or more hours then you are entitled
European flight delay compensation from the airline involved. If you arrive at your destination
and you are three hours or more late, then you could claim up to six hundred Euros in
Of course, airlines are famous for being money pinchers and will try every trick in the book to try
and hold on to the compensation the legally have to pay you. The only time an airline is exempt
from paying out is when the delay was caused by extraordinary conditions such as a strike or
extreme weather conditions. In the past, airlines tried to use technical faults as a reason and
claimed that a technical fault was an extraordinary condition. However, European courts ruled
that technical faults were not an extraordinary condition and that this reason could not be used to
avoid making compensation payments.
To be eligible for compensation your flight must have departed from an airport in the Europe
Union but be any worldwide airline, or be arriving into the European Union and operated by a
European airline. The flight also needs to arrive three or more hours late to the destination airport
for passengers to be eligible to receive compensation. For flights less than one-thousand-fivehundred kilometers the rate of compensation starts at 250 Euros, and for long haul flights that are

Dealing with the airlines involved can seem like a daunting task, and many of them will try to
wriggle out of paying compensation for delayed flights. The law is the law and this is where a
specialist with experience in getting flight delay refunds can come in handy. Your best chance of
getting the money you are entitled to is to use a company that routinely assists EU passengers and
that has a good track record of successful compensation claims for canceled or delayed flights,
even for past flights taken in the last 6 months.
As professionals who know of the reluctance among airlines when it comes to compensating
passengers, they will help you recover the reimbursement you are entitled to and make sure that
the airline does not try to find loopholes or ways out of paying up. You could try to deal with the
claim yourself, but when you don’t know where to start or the appropriate steps to take, the whole
task can appear to be much more of a challenge than you first thought.
When it comes to dealing with large companies such as the airlines, it is best to have a company
that knows how to deal with it on your behalf. With a wealth of knowledge and understanding on
how the process works they can ensure you are compensated and that the process is as stress-free
for you as possible.

passengers in successful compensation claims even for past flights. They recognize that there is a
lot of reluctance among airlines to compensate passengers and help you recover the
reimbursement you are entitled to. For more information please get in touch with them at:
