What are the EU flight compensation rules?
Skycop enforces the Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 of the European Parliament
and of the Council of 11 February 2004. The EC 261/2004 Regulation
establishes common rules on compensation and assistance to passengers in
the event of flight delays, cancellations and overbooking. According to the
Regulation, you are entitled to flight compensation if you: 1. Experienced a
flight disruption; 2. Your flight was to/from/within the EU; 3. The flight
disruption was the airline's fault.

You experienced a flight disruption
Flight disruptions occur when something unusual happens to your flight, making you reach your flight destination later than expected (or not at all). The most common types of disruptions are flight delays, cancellations and overbookings.
Delayed Flight Compensation
Time is money- if your flight was late to arrive at the final destination by 3+ hours you are eligible for a compensation.
>
Cancelled flight Compensation
Notification is a must - if you weren't notified of flight cancellation at least 14 days prior, you are eligible for a compensation.
>
Overbooked Flight Compensation
A seat must be guaranteed - if you were denied boarding due to overbooking, you are also eligible for compensation.
>

Your delayed flight was to/from EU
Your delayed flight was from or within EU or arrived to EU and was operated by an EU airline.
Your disrupted flight was
from or within the EU
Your flight departed from an airport at an EU country and landed anywhere else in the world.
Your disrupted flight arrived to EU and was operated by an EU airline
Your flight was operated by an EU-registered carrier and landed at an airport in the EU.

Flight disruption was airline's fault
Last of all, the flight is only eligible for flight compensation if the airline was responsible for the disruption! List of flight disruptions caused by the airline usually include operational issues, technical issues with the airplane, plane rotation issues and other airline-related issues. Here are some examples:
Operational issues
The flight was not able to arrive on time because the airline messed up with the crew planning.
Airplane technical issues
The flight disruption occurred because something broke down in the plane and it wasn't a manufacturing flaw.
Airplane rotation issues
The plane was late to arrive from previous flight to fly your route.
Other
There might be some other airline related issue that disrupted the flight, thus making it eligible for compensation.

How much can you get in compensation for
delayed flight?
Delayed flight compensations are issued in the amount of €250, €400 and €600. Your flight compensation depends on your flight distance - the longer the flight, the bigger the compensation.
Up to 1500 km
Relatively short hops of up to 1500 km are worth:
$250
From 1500 km to 3500 km
If your flight was from 1500 km to 3500 km long, you can get:
$400
More than 3500 km
If your flight was over 3500 km in length, your compensation can be up to:
$600

When are you not entitled to delayed flight
compensation?
There are several circumstances under which the airlines are not responsible for the flight disruption - and the flight is not eligible for flight compensation!
Late to arrive less than 3 hours
Your flight was delayed, but arrived at the final destination less than 3 hours late.
Flight cancelled more than 14 days prior
If your flight was cancelled more than 14 days prior the scheduled arrival date, the flight is not considered eligible for flight compensation.
Strikes and incidents
Strikes at the airline or the airport, or various other incidents that the airline can't control can be considered as extraordinary circumstances, making the flight not eligible for compensation.
Bad weather conditions
If the weather conditions at either the origin airport or the destination make operating an aircraft unsafe, your disrupted flight is not considered eligible for compensation.
Airplane manufacturing flaws
When a plane breaks down due to a manufacturing flaw (and not negligent maintenance), it is considered an extraordinary circumstance. Thus the flight is not eligible for compensation.
Non-EU flight/operator
If your flight is to EU, but your carrier isn't registered in the EU, the flight is not considered for a compensation.
