Our Flight Cancellation Compensation Calculator

The tickets bought, the suitcases packed, the journey is ahead, the airport is already noisy and bustling around... And suddenly - like a bolt from the blue: the flight is cancelled!

Do not panic. The responsibility of any airline is to make sure that you arrive at your final destination on time. If your flight was delayed or cancelled, you have the right to receive a full refund or choose an alternative flight.

You could also be entitled to compensation of up to €600 (£510).

Flight compensation regulation, or Regulation EC261, is among EU regulated laws. It enforces the rights of air passengers in case of delayed or cancelled flights. The Regulation includes the list of criteria required to be eligible for compensation

It does not matter what your citizenship is or where you live. You are entitled to compensation if your situation satisfies the following three conditions:

 

  1. Your flight is cancelled less than 14 days before the departure date. 
  2. Your cancelled flight departed from an EU airport, or was operated by an EU airline
  3. Your flight cancelled due to the fault of the airline: 
    • the crew or the plane is not ready for the flight
    • flight scheduling problems 
    • overbooking (when airlines deny boarding some air passengers). 
    • aircraft technical problems 

 

Sometimes flights are cancelled due to the extraordinary circumstances when an airline does not have to pay the compensation.

Such cases include bad weather, air traffic control, terrorism, airport employee strikes, etc. 

compensation after flight cancellation in bad weather is not applicable since it is one of the extraordinary circumstances

For example, your EasyJet flight from London to Paris is cancelled. The reason is a strike by the French Air Traffic Control.

How much compensation for cancelled flight EasyJet must provide? No compensation because the strike by a third party is considered an extraordinary circumstance. Thus, you are not entitled to compensation in this case. 

Almost 90% of air passengers do not claim compensation because they do not know about having such a right. Those who know prefer to avoid stressing time-consuming court trials. 

This is explained by the fact that many airlines are reluctant to pay compensation. Yet, the Commission for Aviation Regulation of Ireland recovered €1.25m (£1.07) in refunds and compensation for air passengers last year 2020. 

With our flight cancellation compensation calculator, you can check how much compensation after flight cancellation you can receive. It takes only 2 minutes.

If you are entitled to compensation we will help you to obtain it. Since we do not take any upfront payments, you have nothing to lose.
