VY 3163 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If your Vueling Airlines flight VY 3163 departing Gran Canaria heading to Santiago 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 Vueling Airlines to pay compensation for minor delays less than 3 hours. Eligibility criteria for valid compensation claim requires that your flight VY 3163 must arrive in Santiago at least 3 hours late. The distance between Santiago and Gran Canaria is the one of the major factors that influences the amount of compensation that you might be able to claim for your flight VY 3163.

Tip: If Santiago is not your final destination, the amount of compensation must be calculated based on the distance between the point of your original departure: Gran Canaria 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 VY 3163 eligibility and determine the correct amount of compensation due to you. It is free to check your flight.

Our team recommends you to avoid accepting airline vouchers in lieu of a ticket refund, as Vueling Airlines vouchers or credits typically have a lot of limitations and a short validity period without option of extension. Airlines often insist on offering passengers to accept vouchers, because Vueling Airlines knows well that most passengers will not use vouchers.
