Turkish Airlines is one of the leading airlines in Europe and the national flag carrier airline of Turkey, but even the best companies can suffer from delays, cancellations, overbooking, and other issues. When these kinds of incidents arise, passengers are often left to deal with the consequences.

However, if you have been faced with Turkish Airlines delays or a cancellation, you could be entitled to compensation of up to €600 (£520), if the disruption happed while leaving an UK or EU airport. AirAdvisor can help with this, and our no-win, no-fee approach means that you won't risk a single thing by asking us to help with you case against this Turkish airline.

Turkish Airlines Cancelled Flights and Delays Compensation

Turkish Airlines cancelled flights and delays do inevitably happen from time to time. But what can you do if your Turkish Airlines flights are cancelled? Well, thanks to a special part of EU Regulation, you could be able to claim up to €600 (£520) per traveller in compensation. This applies on all flights departing from European airports, and includes the following passenger rights:

  • Make a Turkish Airlines flight delay compensation claim for up to €600 (£520) per person.
  • You can claim compensation for all flights in the last three years.
  • Make a claim for all types of Turkish Airlines flight disruptions, like delays, cancellations, overbooking, and missed connections.

Denied Boarding and Missed Connecting Flights

Air passengers departing from an EU or UK airport are also covered in case they are denied boarding because of an overbooked flight. The compensation for Turkish Airlines overbooked flights is similar to the one for delayed or cancelled flights. This guide teaches everything you need to know about denied boarding.

Lastly, you're also covered in case you missed a connecting flight.

You can always use our flight delay compensation calculator to find out how much compensation you can receive for flight delays or flight cancellations.

Turkish Airlines Compensation: How Does it Work?

So, what can you do if Turkish Airlines change your flight, delay you, or cause a cancellation?

But this can be quite a complicated and time-consuming process.

Turkish Airlines Cancelling Flights: Steps to Follow

What should you do if Turkish Airlines are cancelling flights and you're affected? Here are the key steps to take:

  • First, find and speak to an airline representative at the airport who will explain the situation to you in greater detail. They should also be able to answer any questions you might have about things like Turkish Airlines delayed baggage compensation or how to claim a refund from Turkish Airlines.
  • You should then collect evidence to support your claim. Things like tickets, receipts, photographs, and so on can all be helpful later on when you try to claim compensation or get a Turkish Airlines refund from the company.
  • Thanks to EU 261, you can also request that the airline covers your basic needs while you wait during a delay or cancellation period. They should provide you with food and drink, and they may even have to pay for your accommodation if you need to wait overnight.
  • Next, to start preparing your compensation claim, use our free online compensation calculator. This will tell you exactly how much compensation you could get.

Note: In situations involving “extraordinary circumstances”, like bad storms or terrorist threats at the airport, the airline may not have to pay this kind of cancellation compensation. However, in the majority of cases, you can hold them responsible for delays and cancellations, and Air Advisor can help.

Can I Get a Turkish Airlines Refund?

It depends. If you cancel your own flight and don't book a flexible, refundable fare, you may not be entitled to a refund. But if the airline cancels your flight for reasons beyond your control, you should be able to get a refund.

How Much Time Do I Have to Make My Claim?

According to the details outlined in EU 261, passengers have a total of three years to claim for flight compensation:

  • Up to €250 (£205) per person for flights under 1,500 km.
  • Up to €400 (£330) per person for EU flights over 1,500 km. 
  • Up to €400 (£330) per person for international EU flights between 1,500 km and 3,500 km.
  • Up to €600 (£520) per person for the longest international flights (in excess of 3,500 km).

First flight was delayed by 1h+ to Istanbul. I have missed my connection. I was offered a new flight with a different airline, Arrived to the final point with a delay of 20h+. From 3 am to 6 pm next day - ONLY 2 meals incl (breakfast and lunch) at the hotel (1 night stay). I lost my "additional service" for which I paid - seat selection.

Lindsay from Canada (Turkish Airlines TK 1978 Flight cancellation)

We arrived over 24 hours late, as we were put on the following day's flight. We had to arrange this through our travel agency as the airline did not rebook us themselves. The airline cancelled the flight after we were boarded and sitting on the tarmac for 3 hours. The flight was cancelled due to technical/electrical issues. The airline put us in a hotel and fed us dinner and breakfast, but we had to pay for our own lunch the next day. We wasted an additional 24 hours on waiting around to travel, and had to reschedule 2 appointments with lawyers. We missed our time-sensitive appointments.

Louise from United Kingdom (Turkish Airlines TK 1992 Flight delay)

My plane took off from Manchester at 2pm and I didn’t arrive at my final destination until 12pm the following day, when I was meant to be there for 10pm. I was getting a connecting flight from Istanbul but I was flown to Ancara airport where we were delayed further causing me to miss 2 possible connecting flights (my original one and the next flight I could be transferred onto). There was little information given about what was actually going on and I was told that I would make the second possible connecting flight by the airline staff. I was travelling on my own for the first time and it was a very scary experience for a 20 year old girl to feel alone with no support from staff so far away from home. This caused me to lose a day of my holiday which was very stressful and disappointing as it was a waste of money paying for the hotel for that night as I wasn’t able to sleep in it. I was travelling for 18 hours for what should have been a total of 8 hours which includes an hour and a half stop in Istanbul airport. My total flight time should have been 6 hours but instead it was a day and a half.
