If you have suffered a flight delay or cancellation within the last 6 years, you could be eligible to claim compensation.
Under European law, passengers who have had their flight cancelled or seriously delayed have the right to compensation up to €600 per passenger (or a full refund).
At Jefferies, our expert team of solicitors are experienced in dealing with flight compensation claims. If you instruct us to handle your claim, we will make sure you receive the compensation you’re entitled to.
You will be able to claim compensation as long as your flight:
If your flight was delayed by more than 3 hours, you could be eligible for flight delay compensation. Complete our flight delay form with the details of your flight and we’ll be in touch to discuss your claim.
When assessing your claim, we’ll take into account historic data regarding weather conditions at the time of your flight. We’ll also be able to find out if there were any extraordinary circumstances or technical faults that may have caused your delay. If you have a valid claim for flight delay compensation, we’ll start working straight away to get you the compensation you deserve.
The amount you can claim will depend on both the distance of the journey and the length of the delay.
|Flight distance||Arrival delay||Entitlement|
|Flights up to 1,500km (932 miles)||More than 3 hours||€250|
|Any flight within the EU over 1,500km (932 miles) or any other flight between 1,500km-3,500 km (2,175 miles)||More than 3 hours||€400|
|More than 3,500km (2,175 miles)||Between 2 EU member states & 3 hours or more||€400|
|More than 3,500km (2,175 miles)||Between 3-4 hours||€300|
|More than 3,500km (2,175 miles)||More than 4 hours||€600|
If your flight is cancelled completely, this can leave you in a difficult situation and even ruin your holiday. Plans are likely to be disrupted as arrangements relying on you to arrive at your destination on time are affected.
Fortunately, under European Law, passengers can claim compensation for the inconvenience caused. If your flight is cancelled, you have the right to claim up to €600 per passenger.
If your flight is cancelled, the airline must offer you a full refund or a ticket for a replacement flight.
If the airline is to blame for the cancellation, you can also claim flight delay compensation depending on the arrival time of the replacement flight.
Sometimes, your airline may recommend that you make your own alternative travel arrangements. If this is the case, make sure you keep any relevant receipts as you should be able to claim your money back.
You can claim for flight delays or cancellation without legal help. However, often, airlines will ignore letters sent directly from customers or will attempt to say that your claim is invalid. When you instruct a solicitor to handle your compensation claim, an airline is far more likely to take your claim seriously and pay you the compensation you deserve.
At Jefferies, our team of expert flight delay compensation solicitors are ready to help you with your claim on a no win, no fee basis. Our legal expertise and experience will ensure that your voice is heard by the airline responsible. We pride ourselves on providing our valued customers with a level of service that goes above and beyond that expected of a no win, no fee claims firm.
Our service involves much more than simply writing letters to the appropriate airlines. Should your airline fail to respond to your claim within 30 days, we will also issue any court papers required. We will represent you in court should you need to take further action.
