Request meal vouchers

For a Flybe flight delayed by 2 hours or more, it is compulsory for the airline to provide meal vouchers to all passengers. These should be of a value appropriate for the time of day and delay duration and if Flybe staff fail to offer anything, you have the right to request them.

Flybe compensation amounts

To calculate the amount of Flybe compensation, delay duration and flight distance are taken into account. These factors are combined and aligned to the criteria below in order to determine the sum of compensation due.

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).

I got a Flybe flight cancellation refund at the airport on the day, but the disruption caused to my holiday was far more significant than the cost of my plane ticket, so I opted to claim compensation for my cancelled flight. Flybe initially ignored the compensation request. so the case ended up going to court. The legal representation I was provided with was top-notch and a court ruling was made in my favour, earning me over £200 in compensation.
