Your Rights as an Air-Passenger and how we can assist you
It is well known that flight delays or cancellations can be annoying as well as frustrating.The planned trip can be delayed or even cancelled in some circumstances. As a result, the European passenger rights regulation has put in place a system that helps to ensure passengers are compensated in the event of a flight delay or cancellation. This compensation is solely dependent on flight distance and not the ticket price and amount payable can sometimes be up to 350 €. Passengers are entitled to a compensation if a flight has been delayed by at least 3 hours or if a flight is cancelled without at least a 14-days prior notification of imminent cancellation.
Airlines are not willing to pay compensations and because of this, passengers who fight for claims on their own find it very difficult coming out with success; except when they have engaged the services of a lawyer. You can have us check your claims for free by submitting them on wirkaufendeinenflug.de. We will evaluate your claims and if after evaluation we find out your claims are valid, we will make you an offer which is payable within 3 - 24 hours * upon agreement.
