Flight Delays: Claim Up To £540* / €600 Per Passenger

Our team of flight compensation experts are here to help you claim the compensation you deserve against the airlines that have wasted your time, money and caused you delays. Holidays are supposed to be your leisure time and you should not be left inconvenienced by the airline that you have paid to get you to your destination on time. If your flight was delayed for more than 3 hours in the past 6 years, you could be eligible for compensation of up to £540* / €600 with Flight Delays, and you should normally have been offered free refreshments for your troubles.

Flight Claim Verification

Accurate flight verification systems are used to make sure your flight landed over 3 hours late at the destination airport. Your flight is also checked against weather databases to make sure you have a valid claim. Finally, a check is also made to see if any extraordinary circumstances are known to have occurred at the airports you flew between to make sure you are entitled compensation. This is how we and our panel solicitors have helped 130,000 passengers recover over £16 million.

We have witnessed many different causes of flight delays ranging from mechanical problems with the plane to a lack of cabin crew availability. If you are unsure if you are eligible for flight compensation, simply fill in your flight details on our website and we will be able to tell you.

What If The Airline Denies your Claim?

Airline Denial

If the airline rejects your claim or ignores you, it doesn’t necessarily mean your flight compensation claim is over. Many passengers come to Flight Delays after initially being rejected by the airline when approached directly. Some airlines often provide smoke screen defences to avoid paying valid claims. Our experience, and that of our experienced panel solicitors combined with specialist verification methods, means our clients find out quickly if they are likely to have a valid claim.

Some airlines would prefer not to have to pay out flight delay compensation to their passengers. Factors such as administration time, drop in profits and loss of reputation all contribute to a lack of will from many airlines to address these issues. They may reject your claim if the airline can prove the flight delay was unavoidable as a result of extraordinary circumstances. Other factors such as industrial strike action and weather conditions can favour the airline in claims for compensation.

Since the introduction of EU regulation EC 261/04 back in 2004, it has been deemed that compensation must be paid out to delayed flight passengers under certain circumstances. If the flight has been delayed and the airline fails to provide evidence that an extraordinary circumstance caused it, then they must compensate all passengers who have been affected.
