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. This legislation protects your rights as an airline passenger and determines when you are entitled to make a claim.
When are my passenger rights protected if my SWISS flight has been delayed?
To have your passenger rights protected, your delayed flight must meet the following requirements:
- The flight departed from an EU country
- Or the flight departed from outside the EU to a country within the EU with a European airline
- In addition, the flight arrived at its final destination with a delay of three hours or more
What if SWISS can proof extraordinary circumstances?
If the airline can prove there were ‘extraordinary circumstances’ and that they were not responsible for the delay, you are not entitled to compensation. If you are unsure whether you are entitled to compensation, please contact us for free advice.
Your right to compensation for your delayed SWISS flight
The amount of compensation is based on the distance of the SWISS flight. Regulation 261/2004 set out the following amounts:
- €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
When the distance of your flight is 3500 km or more and you arrive with a delay between three or four hours, you are entitled to 50% of the compensation amount.
* 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).
