EW 826 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If your Eurowings flight EW 826 departing Cologne heading to Milano got delayed, you may be eligible for compensation for a flight delay, which depends on circumstances of a flight disruption. Regulation EU EC261/ 2004 is a European Union regulation that mandates the right to compensation for flight delay inconvenience and lost time for every passenger affected regardless of ticket price and if somebody else paid for tickets.

However, the EU Regulation does not require Eurowings to pay compensation for minor delays less than 3 hours. Eligibility criteria for valid compensation claim requires that your flight EW 826 must arrive in Milano at least 3 hours late. The distance between Milano and Cologne is the one of the major factors that influences the amount of compensation that you might be able to claim for your flight EW 826.

Tip: If Milano is not your final destination, the amount of compensation must be calculated based on the distance between the point of your original departure: Cologne and your ultimate final destination if both flights are booked under the same reservation.

To make sure you don’t miss a chance to claim compensation, our system allows you to instantly check your flight EW 826 eligibility and determine the correct amount of compensation due to you. It is free to check your flight.

Technology developed by our team from AirAdvisor allows you to check eligibility of your claim for flight EW 826 compensation and to determine the accurate amount of compensation payable by Eurowings. Make sure to use our free flight checker not to miss out on your compensation claim.
