Passengers whose flights have been delayed to be compensated

London.- Where passengers reach their final destination three hours or more after the scheduled arrival time, they may claim fixed compensation from the airline, unless the delay is caused by extraordinary circumstances, a report from Travel Daily News said.

 

EU law provides that, if their flights are cancelled, passengers may receive fixed compensation amounting to between €250 and €600.
The Court of Justice found that passengers whose flights are delayed may be treated the same way as those whose flights are cancelled as regards their right to compensation.

Thus, the Court held that if passengers reach their final destination three hours or more after the arrival time originally scheduled, they may claim fixed compensation from the airline, unless the delay is caused by extraordinary circumstances.

The Court also finds that the requirement to compensate passengers whose flights are delayed is compatible with the Montreal Convention.
