EU 261 Rule – EasyJet Compensation Rights
If your flight was delayed or cancelled or overbooked, you are entitled to compensation of up to 600€ from your travel airline. EC Regulation 261/2004 (dated 17 February 2005) applies to airline passengers, for flights departed from any EU airport, or from a non-EU airport with an EU airline to an EU destination.
Note: If your flight was delayed at departure for 2 hours or more, you should get assistance from the airlines that involves getting vouchers for free food and drinks, access to minimum 2 phone calls and emails. Airlines should also provide you with hotel accommodation if you’re delayed overnight.
If they don’t give you help at the airport, keep receipts for expenses and try to claim from the airline later. Airlines only pay for ‘reasonable’ expenses – you won’t get money back for alcohol, expensive meals or luxury hotels.
Passengers must note that compensation is subject to certain conditions and exceptions. There will be no compensation for disruptions caused due to extraordinary circumstances, under which such delay or cancellation becomes uncontrollable. These exceptional cases include extreme bad weather or strike or security concerns such as fear of a terror attack. In such situations, passengers will not be given any compensation.
Nevertheless, if there is a delay of more than 4 hours for a flight of 3500 km or more; delay of 3 hours or more in intra-community flight of 1500 km or more; and delay of 3 hours in case of flight under 1500 km, the passenger is entitled to compensation under EU norms as set by the Regulation.
If you are an EasyJet flight passenger and your flight had been delayed or cancelled, for reasons which could have been easily solved, then according to Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, you are eligible for compensation, taking into account, the distance travelled both within Europe and Outside Europe and the duration of flight delay which should be more than 3 hours.
- If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you can claim up to 250€
- And over 1,500 km, you can claim up to 400€
