Your Rights as an
The EU passenger rights regulation no. 261/2004, which was introduced in 2004, has helped to cut down on flight delays and cancellations a great deal. Passengers are entitled to compensation if a flight is delayed for at least 3 hours or canceled without prior notification of at least 14 days before scheduled flight departure date. It is usual practice for the airline to give sufficient notice of an imminent flight cancellation. In a situation where at least 14 days notice before scheduled departure date is given, the the airline is required to make provision for a replacement flight and passengers have the right to say if they want to accept the offer or not. Airlines are however not held responsible for monetary compensation if delay or cancellation is as a result of Bird strikes, storms and other related bad weather conditions.
