Air Moldova 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.
  • Air Moldova Cancel Flight: if Air Moldova cancelled your flight and informed you less than 14 days before departure.
  • Overbooking: If you have been denied boarding 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.

 

Air Moldova Flight Cancellations: When are they Liable?

When Air Moldova can escape liability: Air Moldova 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 Moldova 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 Air Moldova flight compensation.

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

When Air Moldova cannot escape liability: When Air Moldova 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 Air Moldova flight delay compensation if you arrived 3+ hours later than the scheduled arrival time of your initial flight.

Air Moldova 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 Air Moldova 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 Air Moldova 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.

Air Moldova 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 Air Moldova delayed flight compensation claim form to receive up to €600 as a flight refund.

Exclusions: Air Moldova 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.

They flight was cancelled 4 days before it was set to go. There were not other flights scheduled (though they said you could reschedule). They didn't refund the ticket price until several months later. This cost me many hours in time so that I arrived at my destination several hours later than planned and a replacement flight with a different airline cost me $275. Here was the communication: Dear passengers! Please be informed that Air Moldova (9U 520) PRG – KIV flight for the 02-May-2023 08:50 was cancelled.

Mariia from Ukraine (Air Moldova 9U 745 Flight delay)
November 25, 2022, 2:44 pm

Me and my fellow passanger arrived to Istanbul 6 hours later than expected. Airline proposed a refund, the reason of delay hadn't been explained. The flight delay notification had been sent in the day of the flight, around 4 hours before original departure time. Because of this flight delay we had to rebook tickets to my next flight and had additional expenses.
