Rerouted Flights

Things You Need to Know About Rerouted Flights Compensation

Each and every year there are thousands of flights that are re-routed. These issues can cause serious disruption to travel plans and arrangements for affected passengers.  If a flight in or out of Europe is rerouted due to issues at an airline that were not caused by extraordinary circumstances then affected passengers may be eligible to claim u to €6oo in compensation

When a flight is re-routed it will usually result in delays for the passengers as their new arrival arrival airport is likely to be much further away from their original and scheduled destination. If this causes delays of 3 hours or more to a passenger then they are eligible yo seek compensation under EU Regulations.

EU Regulation requires airlines to ensure that their passengers are compensated if they experience delays of 3 hours or more which are not caused by extraordinary circumstances. Airlines should make passengers aware of these rights but in lots instances that does not happen.

In order for you to make and successfully receive compensation as a result of delays caused by a rerouted flight you must have been travelling to or from a European destination.  You must prove that the airline could have prevented and avoided the delay, and it was not caused by “extraordinary circumstances”. In addition to this your flight must have been within the last 6 years. Once you have this information to handle you are legally entitled to make a claim. Doing so however is not always easy due to the challenges you will face from the airlines who in most cases will not want to issue compensation.
