Your rights as an airline passenger

Within the European Union, passenger rights are protected by Regulation 261/2004. In the UK, since 2021, these rights have been protected in legislation The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019. Which legislation applies to your flight depends on the route and which airline you flew with. In order to fall under one of the legislations your flight must comply with the following rules:

  • Depart from an airport in the United Kingdom and the flight was operated by an UK airline
  • Or flying from the EU or to the EU with an European airline

When your flight is delayed two hours or more, the airline is obliged to provide food, drink and, if necessary, hotel accommodation. If this is not provided, you can claim the costs back from the airline.

  • Denied boarding

Right to compensation

Does your flight fall under one of the regulations and did you arrive at your final destination with more than three hours’ delay? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of time. If the the flight delay was due to an extraordinary circumstance, you are not entitled to compensation. When ‘extraordinary circumstances’ apply, the airline can show that they were not responsible for the delay. Examples of such circumstances are bad weather conditions and acts of terrorism.

New Ruling for claiming compensation outside of EU

A recent ruling has changed your right to compensation for flightproblems happening outside of the EU. If your journey starts in the EU and you have to transfer flights outside of the EU, and that second flight is delayed or cancelled, this is considered a part of the journey that started in the EU. Therefore, you are still entitled to compensation for flightproblems occuring outside of the EU when your journey started in the EU.

Amount of compensation

If your flight falls under EU Regulation 261/2004 or The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, the amount of compensation you are entitled to is based on the distance of the flight.

Amount of compensation

Calculate the distance of your flight

  • €250* compensation for a delayed flight up to 1500 km
  • €400* compensation for a delayed flight between 1500 and 3500 km
  • €600* compensation for a delayed flight exceeding 3500 km

With a flight distance of 3,500 km or more and a delay of between three and four hours, you are entitled to 50% of the compensation amount according to the Sturgeon ruling.

* The route with which you flew and the airline that performed the airline are key in determining if your will fall with the scope of the EC 261 regulation (and be entitled to Euro’s) or the The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (and be entitled to GBP).
