Post Compensation for Flight Delay

Compensation for Flight Delay
The money you can claim for flight delay depends on the distance of your flight route. EC Regulation 261/2004 is an European Union Rule made for flight passengers to claim for flight delays of 3+ hours. EU 261 Rule entitles to claim up to 600 Euros for flights delayed of more than 3 hours at destination airport.
Claim amount depends on the Distance of your flight
  • For a distance of less than 1500 km, you can claim up to 250 Euros
  • For a distance between 1500 km to 3500 km, you can claim up to 400 Euros
  • For a distance of more than 3500 km, you can claim up to 600 Euros.
