Flight Delays / Cancellation / Denied Boarding Problems

Aer Lingus airlines not only have heavy air passenger traffic but also equally substantial cargo and mail traffic which sometimes leads to flight delays or cancellations. According to EU passenger rights regulation, any air passenger travelled with Aer Lingus airline has complete right to claim a compensation up to 600€ for flight delays of 3 hours or more; flight cancellation without any prior notification; denied boarding due to over booked flights in accordance with EC Regulation 261/2004.

EC Regulation 261/2004 / Know Your Rights / Air Passenger Rights

EC Regulation 261/2004 (dated 17 February 2005) applies to air passengers departing from any EU airport, or from a non-EU airport with an EU airline to an EU destination.

Passengers must note that flight delay compensation is subject to certain conditions and exceptions. There will be no compensation for a delay / cancellation caused by an extraordinary circumstance, under which such delay / cancellation becomes uncontrollable. An example of such situations includes bad weather or security concerns such as fear of a terror attack. In such situations, passengers will not be given any compensation.

Nevertheless, if there is a delay of more than 4 hours for a flight of 3500 km or more; delay of 3 hours or more in intra-community flight of 1500 km or more; and delay of 3 hours in case of flight under 1500 km, the passenger is entitled to claim compensation under EU norms as set by the Regulation. This entitlement is when the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances.

If you are an air passenger travelling with Alitalia airline and your flight has been delayed or cancelled (without any prior notice) or for reasons which could have been easily solved then according to Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, Alitalia flight passengers can claim up to 600€ as flight delay compensation. This takes into account distance that you travelled both within Europe and outside Europe and the time for flight delay which should be more than 3 hours.

Within EU,

  • If you travelled up to 1,500 km or less then you can claim up to €250
  • And over 1,500 km you can claim up to €400

Between EU airport and non-EU airport

  • If you travel upto 1,500 km or less then you get €250
  • If you travelled more than 3500 km and flight delays between 3 -4 hours then you claim up to €300
  • And if the distance is more than 3500 km and flight delays more than 4 hours then you claim up to €600

Note: If you are travelling to a Non-European country from a Non-European country by a European Flight, EU 261 Rule won’t apply to you. It is only applied in the case of EU based flights travelling within Europe or to or from an EU Member State.

Delayed Flight Distance Based Claim Amount
