Approaching EasyJet staff for more information could also help understand the situation fully before submitting a claim.

Food & drink vouchers

EasyJet flights delayed by 2 hours or more will require EasyJet staff to distribute meal vouchers to passengers affected. They are to be of a value proportionate to the delay duration and if the EasyJet are not forthcoming in offering them, they can be requested as a passenger entitlement.

Keep hold of EasyJet documentation

Along with any letters or emails that you’ve received from EasyJet, your booking confirmation, tickets and boarding cards can all help build a robust catalogue of evidence for cases regarding EasyJet delayed flight complaints. Passengers are advised to make copies to prevent documents being misplaced.

EasyJet compensation amounts

EasyJet compensation for flight delays is calculated in accordance with the length of delay and flight distance. It broadly adheres to the formula summarised by the table below. EasyJet will be familiar with delay claims being brought against them and will normally endeavour to conclude a case outside of court with an appropriate compensation settlement.

Compensation Table

Amounts set by EU Regulations 261/2004
Flight distance Delay on arrival (hours) Compensation
Up to 1,500km 3 or more £226†/€250
1,500km - 3,500km 3 or more £361†/€400
Over 3,500km‡ 3 to 4 £271†/€300
Over 3,500km‡ 4 or more £540†/€600

For distances of greater than 3,500km, for the higher amount of compensation the journey will need to have departed from an EU (European) airport and be delayed on arrival in a Non-EU airport (Such as Manchester to Diagoras.) The airline is eligible to apply a 50% flat reduction on compensation awarded if the delay was between 3 and 4 hours.

Your claim will be settled at the Euro equivalent on the exchange rate at the time of the delay, or on the date your claim is settled
(This will depend on the airline).

EasyJet overbooked flight claim success

EasyJet overbooked flight claim success

Pauline Lofthouse Warwick

I was previously unaware of the EasyJet overbooking policy. To my horror, when I arrived at Gatwick for my flight I was prevented from boarding the plane because EasyJet overbooked my flight. I was so outraged with the disruption this had caused that I decided to pursue an EasyJet overbooking compensation claim and got an extra £220 on top of my ticket refund.

Francis Hughes Southampton

At the airport I was offered an EasyJet flight cancellation refund but was still angry as my holiday to Greece had been ruined. In the initial pursuit of compensation for my cancelled flight, EasyJet rejected the claim so my assigned solicitor took legal action against them, and just a couple of weeks after that, I had received my EasyJet flight cancellation compensation.



Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find the latest EasyJet flight cancellation information?

The airport will have departure information screens situated all over the terminal buildings and similar flight updates can be found on the airport website. If you are looking for EasyJet-specific updates, these can be found using the flight tracker on EasyJet’s website. To find out even more information, it is sometimes worthwhile approaching EasyJet staff at the airport to find out what they know.

My journey was disrupted by an EasyJet flight cancellation today – can I claim compensation?

If the subsequent delays are 3 or more hours in length and the cancellations are not caused by circumstances beyond the airline’s control then an EasyJet flight cancellation claim can be made.

Why does EasyJet overbook its flights?

Passengers often fail to show up at the airport; consequently airlines such as EasyJet will overbook in anticipation of this. For EasyJet, overbooking flights is merely a way to guarantee the highest possible seat occupation rates. By selling more tickets than there are seats; EasyJet will be able to increase operational efficiency and revenue.

What happens if EasyJet denied boarding due to overbooking incident?

If you were one of the unfortunate passengers to lose their seat you could be entitled to EasyJet overbooked flight compensation. This is in addition to a flight refund and basic assistance required (hotel accommodation, meal vouchers etc).

How do I start claiming EasyJet compensation for delays I’ve suffered?

Simply complete one of our EasyJet delay compensation forms and we’ll get in touch to progress the claim on your behalf.

EasyJet cancelled our flights in 2016 – will we be eligible for EasyJet compensation?

When claiming EasyJet compensation, cancelled flights must have caused delays of at least 3 hours, been the fault of the airline and taken place in the last 6 years. Since your EasyJet flight cancellation happened in 2016, it is only the additional criteria that will need to be met to make a successful claim.

Is it possible to get an EasyJet delayed flight refund?

Although it is usually possible to obtain a cancelled flight refund from EasyJet, they will not generally offer refunds in flight delay cases. Instead, for passengers suffering a flight delay, EasyJet compensation can be claimed in accordance with EU flight compensation regulations.

My flight was cancelled due to an Air Traffic Control strike – do EasyJet pay compensation in these circumstances?

As EasyJet cancelled flights due to strikes by non-airline staff, it is likely that they will have no liability for the disruption caused – compensation will not be required as the strike situation was beyond the direct control of the airline.

My EasyJet flight was delayed for 2 hours – can I get compensation for the inconvenience?

In the case of an EasyJet 2 hour delay, compensation will not be in the form of financial imbursement. However, for a 2 hour EasyJet flight delay, food vouchers are obligatory.

My flight was delayed 3 years ago, the EasyJet delayed flight policy suggests I have left it too late to claim – is this right?

No. Airlines such as EasyJet will often look to impose their own rules. An EasyJet flight delay policy will always be overcalled by the guidelines set by EU legislation – therefore, the limit of 6 years remains in place, and EasyJet are obligated to adhere to this.

I’ve endured an EasyJet flight cancellation due to weather conditions – what are my rights?

To claim compensation for an EasyJet flight cancellation, weather conditions must not constitute "extraordinary conditions" – if the weather is generally considered unsafe for flying, EasyJet will have no liability to pay compensation for the disruption caused as the situation falls outside of their direct control.

What are the standard EasyJet compensation amounts that are paid to passengers?

When it comes to EasyJet compensation, how much you receive is dependent on flight distance and delay duration. The final sum will generally be between £220 and £540. The longer the flight distance and delay duration are; the more compensation is required.

How is the EasyJet 3 hour delay compensation cut-off calculated?

Although it’s stated that delays are measured using actual flight arrival times, EU regulations have been a little bit unclear on precisely what this means. For example, budget operator, Germanwings disputed a claim for flight delay compensation by arguing that the delay was in fact only 2 hours and 58 minutes when the plane touched down on the runway at the destination airport.

Germanwings vs. Ronny Henning was the resulting court case that took place in September 2014. At the European Court of Justice hearing, a judge ruled that the delay duration should in fact be measured from the moment that a passenger is permitted to disembark the plane (i.e. when cabin crew have opened aircraft doors)

This case has been used as a precedent for defining delay durations in marginal situations.

I’ve lost my boarding card – can I still claim delayed flight compensation from EasyJet?

Boarding cards aren’t necessarily required when making your claim - just make sure that you give us as much information as you can by completing an EasyJet delayed flight compensation form.

I was forced to stay overnight at the airport when my EasyJet flight was delayed – should I have been offered hotel accommodation?

Given the duration of the delay resulting from the EasyJet flight cancelled, hotel accommodation should have been afforded to affected passengers. If EasyJet failed to do so, it is further evidence to support a compensation claim.

I’ve had a claim rejected because of the EasyJet compensation policy relating to "extraordinary circumstances" – what happens now?

When claiming EasyJet compensation it is up to the airline in question to prove that the circumstances were extreme enough to be deemed beyond the reasonable control of any flight operator. There have been a couple of recent cases that have been used as precedents for “extraordinary circumstances” interpretation:

McDonagh vs. Ryanair Ltd was heard in the European Court of Justice and decreed that extreme naturally occurring events such as the Icelandic ash cloud cause by a volcano in 2010 were “extraordinary circumstances” given the widespread disruption caused. This interpretation nullified the requirement to compensate passengers for delays occurring in such situations.

There have also been situations where airlines have disguised technical faults by blaming extraordinary circumstances. Jet2 vs. Huzar went to the English Court of Appeal in the summer of 2014, where it was declared that technical and mechanical faults surfacing as a result of airline negligence or poor maintenance cannot be cited as “extraordinary circumstances”.

I’m thinking of making a claim for EasyJet compensation – how long do I have submit it?

The time limit set by the UK Statute of Limitations is 6 years from the scheduled departure date of your EasyJet flight.

Is there a minimum flight distance required for EasyJet compensation claims?

For passengers enduring a cancelled or delayed EasyJet flight, compensation is a possibility regardless of flight distance. However, payment will vary in accordance with the flight distance intervals defined by EU legislation.

How do I claim flight delay compensation from EasyJet if I purchased a ticket with frequent flyer points?

The process is the same as if you had used hard currency to purchase your seat. It is only discounted or free tickets (not publicly available) that are excluded from EasyJet compensation claims.

What is the EasyJet flight delays policy for domestic routes?

EasyJet flight delays in the UK follow the same rules as those involving overseas routes. EasyJet policy must adhere to EU regulations or they will potentially face passenger compensation claims.
