Remedies for the passenger in case of a canceled flight
We are facing the cancellation of a flight when the airline does not operate the scheduled transport, despite the regular booking of the passenger.
In this case the carrier has the following obligations:
- Offer the passenger the choice between the restart (alternative flight) to the final destination and the refund of the full ticket price within seven days;
- Offer the passenger meals and drinks and, if necessary, hotel accommodation until the new departure, in addition to transportation between the airport and the place of accommodation;
- Pay the passenger a cash compensation which, depending on the length of the route, varies from 250 € to 600 €.
Conditions under which the passenger is not entitled to cash compensation
There are basically 3 cases in which the airline is not required to pay the European compensation to the passenger:
- the flight was canceled due to exceptional events, such as a strike or bad weather;
- the passenger was informed of the cancellation of the flight at least two weeks in advance;
- the flight departs from an airport located in a non-EU country, operated by a non-European carrier (in this case the passenger is still entitled to a compensation).
