What are the flight delay compensation rules?
In summary the rules include:
- The amount of delay of the arrival.
- The airline you fly with and where it is based.
- The airport you fly from.
- The airport you fly to.
- Distance you fly.
- Who's responsible for the delay. In other words who's deemed to be at fault.
- How long ago the flight was taken.
In a bit more detail, the flight delay compensation rules are as follows:
The rules that govern flight delays on flights departing and arriving to the UK are as follows:
- Flights that arrive more than three hours late fall within the compensation rules.
- Flights that depart from any UK airport on any airline fall within the flight delay compensation rules. So this would include Easyjet, Ryanair, Thomas Cook, Thomson, British Airways, as EU operators. However, this would also include American Airlines, Canada Airlines, Qantas, Air New Zealand, Emirates and so on.
- For all flights that arrive to a UK airport, the flight delay compensation rules only apply to EU operated airlines, like Easyjet, Ryanair, Thomas Cook, Thomson, British Airways, Lufthansa, Air France, KLM and so on.
- Flight delays that are the fault of the airline fall within the light delay compensation rules. So delays caused due to crew sickness or lateness or due to a technical fault on the plane, where the airline didn’t have sufficient back up in place to transport their passengers to their destination on time, would be caught by the light delay compensation rules.
- The other flight delay compensation rule to satisfy when you are calculating the amount of flight delay compensation you receive is the distance travelled and whether the flight was arriving to another airport within the EU or outside of the EU.
Once you have satisfied the above rules for your flight delay compensation claim and you are happy that a claim is valid, you will need to write to your airline.
- Flights taken in the last 6 years also come within the European Union flight delay compensation rules (In Scotland this is 5 years).
