TOM 217 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If your flight TOM 217 Boa Vista to Manchester was delayed, you may be entitled to compensation for a flight delay, depending on the circumstances. Regulation EC 261/2004 is a European Union law that gives passengers the right to compensation for flight delay inconvenience and lost time.

The law does not provide compensation for minor delays less than 3 hours. So to be entitled to make a valid compensation claim, your flight TOM 217 must arrive in Manchester at least 3 hours late. The distance between Boa Vista and Manchester is the main determining factor for compensation calculation for your flight TOM 217.
