Flight Cancellations: Your Right to Compensation

Flight cancellations can throw your travel plans into disarray, causing frustration and inconvenience. However, you may be entitled to compensation for these disruptions. At Jet Delayed, we specialize in helping air travellers understand their rights and secure compensation for flight cancellations.

Understanding Flight Cancellation Compensation

Flight cancellation compensation is a form of reimbursement provided to passengers whose flights are cancelled by the airline. These cancellations could be due to factors such as operational issues, weather conditions, or other circumstances within the airline's control.

Following Brexit, UK law was introduced to match EU regulation EC 261, meaning passengers have the right to be reimbursed for flight cancellations providing certain criteria are met.

If you qualify, an airline is legally required to pay you flight cancellation compensation of up to £520/€600.

Your Entitlement to Compensation
  • Full Refund or Rebooking: In case of flight cancellations, airlines are usually required to offer you the choice between a full refund of your ticket or rebooking on an alternative flight.
  • Compensation Amount: Depending on the regulations and the circumstances of the cancellation, you might be eligible for financial compensation in addition to the option of refund or rebooking.
  • Notification Requirement: Airlines are obligated to inform you about the cancellation as early as possible and provide clear explanations for the cancellation.
