Can I get compensated for a delayed or cancelled Kenya Airways flight?

You can get compensated if:

  • Your flight reservation was confirmed.
  • You arrived at your final destination more than 3 hours late.
  • If you got an alternative flight and arrived at your final destination significantly later than the original flight was planned.
  • The airline informed you about the flight cancellation less than 14 days before departure.
  • You departed from the EU or arrived at an EU airport (when the airline is an EU-based carrier).
  • Your check-in for the flight was on time (usually not less than 45 minutes before the flight).
  • Your flight was less than 3 years ago as many countries have a flight delay application limit that is less than 3 years.
  • The airline is responsible for the delay (the circumstances for the delay were under the airline’s control).

I’m happy that I used the services of IFDELAYED

I’m happy that I used the services of IFDELAYED even though I couldn’t receive the full compensation due to “capacity issues in Germany and many other countries in the EU”. Nevertheless my additional expenses like hotel and transfer were paid for as well. I would definitely recommend this company if you have any kind of issues with your flight.
