Flight delay compensation

Sometimes, air travel can present you with unpleasant surprises. Flight delays are a fact of life and occur more often than people think. If you experienced a delayed flight, you may be entitled to up to €600 in compensation under Regulation (EC) No 261/2004.

Can I get compensated for a delayed flight?

You can get compensated if:

  • You arrived at your final destination more than 3 hours late.
  • 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).
  • Whether the airline provided you with food or vouchers is irrelevant.

Jonas och hans familj sparade 7.682 kr

Vi är så glada över att vi köpt Ifdelayed Premium. Min familj fick ut 25.824 kr för en försenad flight från New York i somras och tack vare vårt medlemskap fick vi behålla 100% av ersättningen själva.

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.
