Flight Compensation

Flight Compensation - http://flightdelayscompensationclaim.co.uk/

Flight compensation in the UK can be made for flights in the last 6 years. When Brexit finally happens, the way flight compensation works will change. However, it’s likely that the UK will adopt the EU regulation 261/2004 and the compensation will remain.

It’s likely that flight compensation will continue after Brexit, but after the two year separation period, or when the politicians sort this out, the new flight compensation will be dealt with under UK legislation instead.

If your flight was cancelled or delayed and this happened within the last 6 years, plus the delay or cancellation was the fault of the airline, flight compensation may be claimed if you satisfy the current rules set out in EU regulation 261/2004.

For flight compensation claims in the UK you need to satisfy the following main rule, which apply to delays and cancellations:

- The flight was in the last 6 years.
- The flight must depart from any UK airport on ANY airline. This means EU operated and international carriers. International carriers like United Airlines, American Airline, Qantas, Air India, Etihad Airways, Air Canada and so on.
- Flights that arrive to any UK airport can only be made on any EU operated airline. These include Easyjet, Ryanair, British Airways (BA), Thomson, Lufthansa, Air France-KLM, Jet2, Flybe, Thomas Cook, Virgin Atlantic and so on.
- The delay must be the fault of the airline. This includes technical faults on the aircraft, crew sickness or lateness. The fault of the airline do not include bad weather (except in certain circumstances where the bad weather affected the inbound flight, which cause your flight to be cancelled), volcanic eruptions, strikes or political unrest.
- The amount of your flight compensation claim is also affected by the distance travelled and the amount of delay you suffer with the replacement flight. Which can be anything up to €600 (or £530*) per person. So if you had two people in your party, that would mean you can claim up to €1,200 (£1,060*) in total.

Additional rules for cancellations:

- The airline notified you of the cancellation within 14 days or less of the departure date of the flight.
- The amount you can claim then depends on the amount of notice you were given for the cancellation prior to your departure date (i.e. it must be 14 days or less), and the distance traveled on the replacement flight. This can be up to €600 per passenger.

Additional rules for delays

- The delay must be more than 3 hours. The delay relates to the arrival time of the flight, which is deemed to be the time when the plane doors are first opened.
