The amount of compensation you can receive as a result of your flight delay is dependent upon the length of your journey, e.g. short, medium or long haul, and the duration of your delay, e.g. over 3 hours. In order to be eligible to claim for your delay, your flight must have taken off or landed in the EU, or the airline must be based in the EU.
It’s important to consider all these factors as these aspects will allow your case to be successful. As professional solicitors, we require evidence and a detailed brief of your situation before beginning the dispute. Our main objective is to deal with all cases logically, and accounting that we work on a ‘no win, no fee basis’, we encourage anyone to seek support if they believe they are due flight delay compensation.
Are You Eligible for Flight Delay Compensation?
Without knowing exactly what the details are, it can sometimes become difficult to know if you’re eligible for flight delay compensation or not. Dependent upon location, delay duration and the journey length, these will determine your claiming ability.
|3 Hours||Up to 1500 km||€250|
|3 Hours+||1500km to 3500km||€400|
|3-4 Hours||Over 3500 km||€300||4 Hours+||Over 3500 km||€600|
This table outlines the exact requirements in order to process a flight delay claim. Different airlines vary in regard to the regulations they follow when flight delays are involved and therefore, this will need to be considered when dealing with your claim. In certain circumstances, it isn’t unlikely that airlines will refuse to offer compensation for the inconvenience caused. If this occurs, the experts here at Sarah Waddington Solicitors will professionally represent your case in court.
Compensation Requirements from Airlines
Every airline is different in the methods they pursue when dealing with flight delay claims. This can impact your ability to be compensated, which is something to consider before enlisting professional assistance. It is important to be aware of the amount of compensation you could receive, depending on the flight delay information provided by the airline. For example, this may include the detail of information passed on from the airline to the passenger.
