Air Europa Compensation Rights

Did your Air Europa flight get delayed or cancelled? Or worse, were you, or a family member, denied boarding because of overbooking?

If so, you should know that European Union Regulation 261 covers both delayed or cancelled flights, as well as cases of denied boarding. 

What Are My Passenger Rights in Case my Air Europa Flight Was Cancelled or Delayed?

According to EU law your rights include:

  • up to €600 (£520) compensation which is not reliant on ticket price
    • Includes disrupted Air Europa flights up to 3 years old
    • Covers flights that were delayed at least 3 hours, cancelled, or overbooked

We here at AirAdvisor make claiming your Air Europa delayed or cancelled flight compensation easy. In return, we charge a fee of only 30% of the sum you receive. But we get paid only if we successfully obtain compensation on your behalf.

We assume all legal costs

All you have to do is submit the application and wait for the compensation to be received.

If you've had a cancelled or delayed flight and are looking for information about a refund or Air Europa flight compensation, we are here to help. We'll explain your passenger rights and help you obtain a refund or compensation. 

Air Europa Flight Compensation Claims

As air passengers, you or your loved ones may be entitled to compensation, according to EU regulation, if one of the following has occurred:

  • Flight delay: If your flight arrives 3+ hours late at your final destination.
  • Air Europa Flight Cancellation: if Air Europa cancelled your flight and informed you less than 14 days before departure.
  • Denied boarding: If you were not allowed to board the airplane due to overbooking.
  • Missed connecting flight: If you missed a connecting flight due to a delay in one of the legs and you arrived at your destination 3+ hours late.

What Should I Do in Case of Cancellations or a Air Europa Delayed Flight?

If you're experiencing a cancelled or delayed Air Europa flight, you should take the following steps:

  1. Confirm the reason for the delay or cancellation.
  2. Collect proof: photos, receipts of expenses, Air Europa booking number, vouchers, etc.
  3. Insist on your basic benefits and services at the airport.

Air Europa Flight Delay Compensation

While all airlines attempt to operate all flights on time, sometimes delays happen. EU regulation 261 (EU 261) protects air 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 Air Europa delayed flight compensation claim form to receive up to €600 (£520) as a flight refund.

Exclusions: Air Europa 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, an event that is outside Air Europa's control. 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.

Air Europa Flight Cancellations: When are they Liable?

Just like with delays, there are some cases where you can't get compensation for cancelled Air Europa flights.

When Air Europa can escape liability: Air Europa 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 Air Europa 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 to 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 Air Europa flight compensation.

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

When Air Europa cannot escape liability: When Air Europa cancels flights, EU 261 Regulation on air passenger rights is 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 (£520) per person in compensation. Additionally, you may receive Air Europa flight delay compensation if you arrived 3+ hours later than the scheduled arrival time of your initial flight.

AirAdvisor is happy to help with your claim, so you can avoid the stress of dealing with airlines and complicated laws.

Air Europa 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 the airline 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 an Air Europa 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 Air Europa 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.

Common questions: Compensation Claims and Refunds

What to do when your Air Europa flight is cancelled?

Confirm the reason for a flight cancellation with the airline ticket desk. Also, collect receipts for any additional expenses for reimbursement later. Ask the airline to provide food and refreshments for a delay of 3 hours or more. If your replacement flight is departing the next day, the airline must provide hotel accommodation and transportation. Finally, use our free online compensation calculator to check if you are eligible for compensation and submit a Air Europa refund for cancellation.

What if I cancel my Air Europa flight? Can I get a refund?

If Air Europa cancels the flight, they must refund the price of ticket to passengers. But if you decide to voluntarily cancel your scheduled flight, you are not entitled to a refund. Air Europa cancellation policy is restrictive, unless you have a flexible fare, which allows you to reschedule your flight to a later date with minimal cost.

Note: regardless of ticket type, passengers have the right to request a refund amount for airport taxes and fees as part of a cancellation refund.

Do I also get my money back for the Air Europa cancelled a flight due to Covid-19?

If Air Europa cancelled a flight due to Covid-19, passengers are entitled to a reimbursement as part of flight cancellation rights. If Air Europa attempts to reimburse your cancelled flight with a voucher, we do not recommend taking it. Instead, apply for a refund. If your refund claim is rejected, AirAdvisor can help enforce your claim through our external lawyers.

Can I Get a Air Europa Refund?

In the event that you do not book a refundable, flexible fare and end up canceling your own flight, it is unlikely that you will be reimbursed. Conversely, if Air Europa cancels your flight without any fault of yours then rest assured as it is obliged to provide a full refund.

How many hours for flight delay to be eligible for Air Europa compensation?

Your Air Europa flight delay of 3 hours or more at the airport of final destination (under the same booking) may make you eligible for compensation. However, the amount of compensation may depend on the period of delay and flight distance. You can use the AirAdvisor flight delay compensation calculator to check your Air Europa flight.

How long does it take to get Air Europa flight delay compensation?

Air Europa may take up to 2-3 months to process and reply to flight compensation claims, even though EU regulation 261 sets a period of one (1) month. Also, Air Europa may attempt to delay or ignore claims made by passengers, as airline knows that more than 60% of passengers will not succeed. AirAdvisor team has experience dealing with Air Europa since 2017, so we would be happy to help your case.
