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:

  • Was delayed or cancelled within the last 6 years
  • Departed or landed (or was due to depart or land) within the EU
  • Was with a European airline
  • Wasn’t delayed or cancelled because of extraordinary circumstances (including industrial action, acts of terrorism and extreme weather conditions)

Get in touch with us today by calling 0800 342 3206 to make sure you’re not left out pocket.

Flight delay claims

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.

How much flight delay compensation can I claim?

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

Flight cancellation claims

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.

How much compensation can I claim for my flight cancellation?

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.

Instructing a solicitor to handle your flight delay compensation claim

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.
