About Manchester Airport and reasons for flight delay or cancellation at the airport.
Manchester Airport transports around 20.6 million passengers a year and has flights to around 255 destinations making it one of the 20 largest airports in Europe. Unfortunately, flight delays and cancellations are still easy to come by at the airport. Technical defects, bad weather conditions and illness of a crew member are all reasons why there could be a flight delay or cancellation.
What you can do while waiting.
To bridge the waiting time, Manchester Airport offers a range of good-brand shops and a large array of cafes and restaurants where passengers can go to for shopping or to relax. However, it is strongly advised that passengers collect proof of the flight or delay or cancellation in writing from the airline operatives. They usually have forms for this. Also ensure that the reason(s) for the delay or cancellation is clearly stated. This helps greatly to enforce compensation claims.
Your Rights as an
According to the European passenger rights regulation, passengers are entitled to compensation from airlines if a flight has been delayed for at least 3 hours or cancelled without at least 14 days prior notification to passengers. However, airlines are not expected to pay compensations in event of exceptional cases such as bird strikes or storm. Amount payable is solely dependent on flight distance and not the ticket price. In a situation where there is a 2 hours waiting time, the airline must make snacks and beverages available to passengers.
