Delayed flight compensation rules
Flight Compensation Regulation (261/2004) is a piece of EU legislation that has set rules for the compensation that passengers can claim if they are impacted by events such as; delays, diversions and cancellations, as well as cases of denied boarding compensation claims due to overbooking. The EU Court of Justice strictly imposes air passenger rights, meaning that airlines must adhere to policies such as providing refreshments or accommodation for a delayed flight.
The regulations apply to passengers that are departing from, or arriving at, an EU airport. It also includes passengers from outside the EU, providing they are arriving at an EU airport and the airline is based in an EU member state. Individuals can only claim flight compensation if they have a valid reservation for the flight and arrived at the departure airport in time for check-in.
