Your Rights as an
According to the European Passenger Rights Regulation, Air passengers who have been victims of either a flight delay or cancellation are eligible for compensation. However, a flight must have been delayed for at least 3 hours or cancelled without 14 days prior notification before scheduled departure date. In a situation where more than 14 days prior notice of an imminent cancellation is given, then the airline is mandated to make a replacement available and the passenger has the right to say if he wants to accept the offer or ask for a refund instead. Amount payable as compensation is often dependent on the flight distance and not on the ticket price. It must however be noted that airlines are not held responsible for compensation payment if flight delay or cancellation is as a result of bird strikes or Storm.
