Singapore Airlines Flight Compensation Claims
As a passenger, you may be entitled to compensation if the following have occurred:

- Singapore Airlines Cancel Flight: if Singapore Airlines cancelled your flight and informed you less than 14 days before departure.

Singapore Airlines Flight Cancellations: When are they Liable?
When Singapore Airlines can escape liability: Singapore Airlines 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 Singapore Airlines 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 Singapore Airlines flight compensation.
An airport employees’ strike is beyond anyone's control. Learn more about cancellation compensation.
When Singapore Airlines cannot escape liability: When Singapore Airlines 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 Singapore Airlines flight delay compensation if you arrived 3+ hours later than the scheduled arrival time of your initial flight.

Singapore Airlines 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 Singapore Airlines 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 Singapore Airlines 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.

Singapore Airlines 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 Singapore Airlines delayed flight compensation claim form to receive up to €600 as a flight refund.
Exclusions: Singapore Airlines 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.

I missed the flight in Munich. The flight I got departed the next day. So I lost a day. My connecting transfer and first day of my stay in Bali needed to bee cancelled and rebooked. Also I'm 7months pregnant. So it was really stressful to organize all the things ... The flight from Singapur to Denpasar was horrible. Scoop Airlines gave me a seat on the window and I didn't even get water, because of the cancellation!! The trip took me a lot longer, which my body needed to compensate in the next week. The flight back was even worse! My flight got cancelled without anyone telling me. So again I needed to ran about the airports to find my own solution! Being pregnant and exhausted!! First I was told to fly the next day ...without anywhere to stay. And from Singapur I was on a waiting list for the connecting flight! My flight from Zürich was totally canceled without replacement. So I fought to get on the plane... Finally I got stuck in Zürich, because no-one took responsibility. I needed to provide myself with expensive food and drinks so spend my day there. I needed to label my luggage myself, because no-one was "having time". In the end my bag needed 4 weeks longer to arrive in Hamburg.
