Flight Delay Claim

  • Did you know that over 1 million flights are delayed for over 3 hours
  • Did you know that you could claim upto £540 in compensation
  • Did you know that our service is 100% No Win No Fee

Why was my flight delayed?

Flights delays occur all the time for a wide variety of reasons including aeroplane breakdowns, lack of flight crew, airlines strikes, incoming flight delays, baggage handling issues and of course THE WEATHER. But none of these are valid reasons that an airline can refuse to pay you compensation for your flight delay regardless of what they have told you. Airlines have a duty of care to their passengers and the EU Regulation 261/2004 sets out a series of rules airlines must adhere to and a recommended level of flight delay compensation.

Can i claim for my flight delay?

Under EU rules airlines have a duty of care to their passengers and the EU Regulation 261/2004 sets out a series of rules airlines must adhere to and a recommended level of flight delay compensation. In order to claim for a flight delay your flight must fit the following rules:

  • Your delayed flight departed from an EU country
  • Your flight was delayed by over 3 hours
  • Your flight delay was in the last 6 years

If you can answer YES to all of these questions then you may be entitled to flight delay compensation.

How Much Can I Claim?

If you think you are eligible for flight delay compensation the amount you could receive will depend on the distance you travelled.

Distance less than 1,500km i.e. London to Edinburgh

£520

Distance more than 3,500km i.e. London to Dubai

Even though the airline told us we were not eligible for compensation FDC were able to claim us back £350 each.

We were told it could take upto 6 months to process our claim but we actually recieved the cash within 6 weeks. Amazing work guys.

Our PIA flight was delayed by over 5 hours as we got £540 in compensation which was more than our ticket cost.

I found your online checker a lot easier to use than other websites - filled it in really quickly and claim processed straight away. Thanks again!

Great service, we were kept informed every step of the way and the app was really useful meaning we didnt have to keep calling for updates.
