Missed flight due to late connection on your way to or from the UK or Europe? Don’t worry! In many cases, you may claim for missed connecting flights and get up to €600 (£510).
If your flight arrives at the final destination with a delay of more than 3 hours, you may receive monetary compensation for missed connections. The good news is that your citizenship and residency do not affect your rights - any affected air passenger can seek protection under European law.
Read on and learn more about what to do when you miss a flight. AirAdvisor can answer all the questions you may have including, can I cancel my connecting flight? or how much EU flight delay compensation for missed connection can I get?
The trips with connecting flights mean that you have to take two or more flights to reach the final destination. If you have missed a connection, you may be entitled to compensation according to the European Regulation EC 261 2004.
Here are the criteria that your flight shall meet to qualify for EU flight delay compensation for missed connection:

If you book all your journey as part of one reservation then the whole ticket will be cancelled in case of cancelling a connecting flight. This includes the return trip as well.
You may have to pay a cancellation fee and an additional airfare difference if you need to cancel a flight to rebook another flight. The rules and amounts are different for each airline, so it is better to get in touch with the airline directly for possible options.
At AirAdvisor, we are committed to helping all travellers who experience missed flights due to late connections. We know what to do when you miss a flight.
Most affected air passengers are unaware that they can get compensation in case of flight delay or cancellation. And even if they know and are trying to get paid, airlines are reluctant to respond.

You just need to fill in your flight information and ... relax. We will oversee the entire process: from verifying your eligibility to participate in a dispute with the airline to defending your case in court. No stress and no extra cost on your part.
