What Is a Flight Delay Compensation Claim?
Under EU law, if you’ve left the UK, the European Union (EU), Iceland, Norway or Switzerland or was onboard a European airline that landed in the UK, the EU, Norway or Switzerland that was delayed, regardless of your global departure location, you are entitled to claim compensation for a dissatisfactory flight.
Following a landmark ruling in October 2012 by the European Court of Justice, it was clarified that passengers can make a flight delay compensation claim provided that a clear criterion could be proven.
Under EU rule 261/2004, passengers are entitled to claim between £110 and £520 in compensation, with the amount of compensation determined by the seriousness of the effect flight delays in Manchester – and across the EU – had on them.
