If your flight with British Airways is cancelled, when are you entitled to compensation?

Your right to compensation for a cancelled flight depends on when you were notified of the cancellation:

  • If you were informed more than 2 weeks in advance, you are not entitled to compensation
  • If you were informed between 14 and 7 days before departure and you arrived more than 4 hours later, you are entitled to compensation
  • If you were informed 7 days or less before departure and you arrived more than 2 hours later, you are entitled to compensation

Note that you are only entitled to compensation if you were flying from an EU country, or if you were flying from outside of the EU to an EU country with a European airline.

British Airways should offer you a replacement flight

If your flight is cancelled, British Airways must offer you a replacement flight. The above compensation schedule applies if you accept the alternative flight and then arrive earlier or later. You will then be compensated for the time difference.

Even if you were informed by British Airways less than 2 weeks before the scheduled departure and you refuse the alternative flight, you are entitled to compensation. In addition, you must get a refund of your ticket costs.

How high is the compensation British Airways has to pay you?

If your flight falls under EU Regulation 261/2004 and you are entitled to compensation, the amount of compensation is based on the distance of the flight. This is divided in destinations within the EU and outside of the EU.
