If you arrive at your end destination with a delay of three hours or more, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of time. Regulation 261/2004 has been set in place to uphold your rights as airline passenger when you flight is delayed or cancelled. This legislation protects your rights as an airline passenger and determines when you are entitled to make a claim.

Regulation 261/2004 was amended after Brexit to the The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 has been set in place to uphold your rights as airline passenger when you flight is delayed or cancelled.
