Have you heard of the new EU flight delay compensation law that they have brought in which can actually get passengers who have been subjected to unnecessary delays their money back and even more depending on how much they paid for the flight. You can even make a profit, for example if your flight cost you £60 but you were delayed for 10 hours you are able to claim back £510 which is £450 more than you actually paid for the flight in the first place meaning you can get another holiday for free thanks to this new law.
This wasn’t always a thing until a few passengers decided to get together and take an airline to .court, after they had won their case the European Union decided to set this in stone and demand that all airlines put money aside for passengers to be able to claim compensation when they have been delayed for more 3 hours.
What does flight delay compensation mean for you?
Well it means you’ve now got the backing of the European courts so when ever you fly abroad whether its for work or for business you will always be able to benefit from the fact that if anything ever goes wrong with your flight as long as its not outside of the Airlines control (this is extreme weather, terrorism etc.) then you will be able to claim back up to £510.
There are some terms that surround all this though, your flight needs to be departing from inside the EU, if you are flying from outside it and you get delayed unfortunately you wont be able to claim compensation. This is due to the EU having no jurisdiction outside of the EU boarders. Even if you’re flying with a non EU carrier as long as you’re departing from the European union when you are delayed then you can still make a claim against it.…
