About Aegan Airways and Reasons for flight Delay or Cancellation
Aegean Airlines is the largest Greek airline by total number of passengers carried, by number of destinations served and by fleet size. A Star Alliance member since June 2010, it operates scheduled and charter services from Athens and Thessaloniki to other major Greek destinations as well as to a number of European and Middle Eastern destinations. Its main hubs are Athens International Airport in Athens, Thessaloniki International Airport in Thessaloniki and Larnaca International Airport in Cyprus. It also uses other Greek airports as bases, some of which are seasonal. It has its head office in Kifisia, a suburb of Athens. Although the airline is the largest airline in Greece, it is not a flag carrier and therefore prone to flight delays and cancellations. Reasons for this include nonchalant attitude of one or more number of crew members, illness, technical defects, Bird strikes and Storms.
Your Rights as an
In general, Aegean Airlines is responsible for compensation payment for cancelled or delayed flights provided Passengers weren’t informed at least 14 days before scheduled departure date for flight cancellations and if a flight is delayed for at least 3 hours. In the event of a flight cancellation, the Airline is mandated to make a replacement flight available and the passengers have the right to either accept it or ask for a full refund of money. It must be noted however that compensation cannot be paid for flight delays and cancellations that are as a result of exceptional circumstances such as Bird strikes or Storms. Amount payable as compensation is solely dependent on the flight distance and not on the ticket price and this money is oftentimes higher than the actual ticket price.
