Passengers who have fallen victim of a flight delay or cancellation within the last three years may be eligible for compensation. According to the European Passenger Rights Act 261/2004, Passengers whose flight is delayed for at least 3 hours or cancelled without prior notice of at least 14 days can all lay claims to remuneration. If notice is given on time, the airline is then mandated to make provision for an alternative flight and the passengers have a right to say if they choose to accept the offer or if they want a full refund instead. Amount payable for compensation is totally dependent on the flight distance and not on the ticket price. It must be noted however that airlines are not to be held responsible if flight delay or cancellation is as a result of exceptional circumstances such as Bird strikes or storms.
