Aerolineas Argentinas Flight Compensation Claims

As a passenger, you may be entitled to compensation if the following have occurred:

  • Flight delay: If your flight arrived 3+ hours late at your final destination.

Aerolineas Argentinas Flight Cancellations: When are they Liable?

When Aerolineas Argentinas can escape liability: Aerolineas Argentinas claims if a flight was cancelled due to events outside of its control; for example bad weather, or issues at the airport. Such events are typically called extraordinary circumstances and in such cases, you are not entitled to a Aerolineas Argentinas missed flight refund.

All airlines will generally try to book you on the next available flight at no additional charge, in the case of cancelled flights. You may agree to the proposed flight or request another replacement flight, or demand reimbursement if you are not happy with any of the options proposed.

Note: If your rebooked scheduled departure arrives at a similar time to your original departure time, you're not entitled compensation. The law is fair and allows airlines not to pay compensation if you can reach your destination with minimum inconvenience. In most cases, passengers who have a cancelled flight will have valid claims for a Aerolineas Argentinas flight compensation.

An airport employees’ strike is beyond anyone's control. Learn more about cancellation compensation.

When Aerolineas Argentinas cannot escape liability: When Aerolineas Argentinas cancel flights, EU 261 Regulation on air passenger rights are clear: You must be put on an alternative flight or provided with a full flight refund.

Also, if you were notified about the flight cancellation less than 14 days before your date of departure, you may be able to receive up to €600 per person in compensation. Additionally, you may receive Aerolineas Argentinas flight delay compensation if you arrived 3+ hours later than the scheduled arrival time of your initial flight.

Aerolineas Argentinas Flight Refund policy

A flight compensation and a refund are two different things. Regulations allow you to receive both: a cancellation refund and compensation.

In case of a cancellation, an airline will try to re-book you on the similar flight, but if that becomes impossible, a cancellation refund will be a full cash refund. Generally, your claim would succeed, providing there were no extraordinary circumstances beyond airline control.

If Aerolineas Argentinas cancels your flight to extraordinary circumstances (such as Covid travel restrictions or a serious illness) and you were offered no replacement flight, you can obtain a ticket refund in full, since your flights booked were not available.

Types of ticket refunds: A full refund must be in cash or credit. Vouchers are allowed only if you specifically agree to it. We do not recommend accepting vouchers due to short expiry dates and potential restrictions on redemption.

Note: If Aerolineas Argentinas offers a replacement flight with approximately the same arrival time and you decide not to take it, there is a possibility of you losing the right to get both compensation and a ticket refund. 

Rule of thumb: you can generally reject alternative flights and receive a refund in full, if a new replacement flight arrives 3+ hours later from your initial scheduled arrival time.

Aerolineas Argentinas Flight Delay Compensation

While all airlines attempt to operate on time, sometimes delays happen. EU regulation 261 (EU 261) protects passengers in cases of flight delays.

According to EC 261, if your flight arrives later than 3 hours at your final destination, you may be eligible to file a Aerolineas Argentinas delayed flight compensation claim form to receive up to €600 as a flight refund.

Exclusions: Aerolineas Argentinas delayed flight compensation will not be enforceable in case of extraordinary circumstances. If the flight departure time is delayed because of bad weather or any airport related disruption, that is considered an extraordinary circumstance. Technical problems, airline staff strike, or operational problems are not valid reasons for rejected compensation claims.

Tip: accepting vouchers or signing release paperwork will result in losing the right to compensation.

Leanne from Gibraltar (Aerolineas Argentinas AR 1133 Flight cancellation)
May 15, 2024, 10:15 am

They told us the flight was delayed due to technical issues with the plane from Buenos Aires. We only found out after a super long delay at Barajas of about 5 hours. We were queueing to board the delayed flight and that's when we found out unceremoniously by Barajas staff putting up the barriers with ropes by the gate. There was no Aerolineas Argentinas (AA) staff present to tell us or answer questions or any AA staff at all to answer questions about the initial delay. We had to spend money on food and drink to keep us going. Once the barajas staff told us the flight was cancelled (in a very unprofessional manner), we were told to leave the gated area and go to the AA desk to see what could be done. The queue was too long and we had a young child who had already waited around all day. This was now around midnight. We were advised to take the offer of an overnight stay in a hotel that night and we had to go back in the morning to fight our case at our own cost with a taxi. After hours of waiting and negotiating, we were given a flight on the Saturday arriving at BA on the Sunday but we had a family wedding to attend (the reason for our trip) on the Saturday so we could not accept this. We managed to negotiate the flight to Buenos Aires plus the onwards flight to San Miguel de Tucuman after 2 nights in the hotel. We got to the destination 1.5 days late. Should have arrived 08:30 on the Thursday morning and arrived 21:00 on the Friday night. The lack of information was astounding, no one to show their face from the company only the hotel rep was explaining what was going on. This wasted 2 days of our annual leave.
