Your Rights as an
Ever since the introduction of the European Passenger Rights Regulation Act, flight delays and cancellations has reduced drastically and this is because Airlines are made to pay compensation to affected Passengers. Compensation is paid if a flight is delayed for at least 3 hours or cancelled without prior notification of at least 14 days before scheduled departure date and amount payable is solely dependent on the flight distance and not the ticket price. Airlines would normally inform passengers of an imminent cancellation on time and in a situation where more than 14 days notice is given , the Airline is then mandated to make an alternative flight available without offering monetary compensation. It must be noted however that Airlines are not held responsible if flight delay or cancellation is as a result of exceptional circumstances such as Bird strikes or storms.
