AIR BERLIN Flight Delays / Cancellation / Denied Boarding Problems

Flight delays, flight cancellations and Denied Boarding are the common problems faced by air travellers. If your flight gets delayed at the arrival airport for 3 or more hours; flight cancelled without notice of 2 weeks OR if you were denied boarding due to overselling of flight seats EC Regulation 261/2004 entitles you to claim flight compensation up to 600 € from the airlines for the inconvenience caused to you. Flight delayed for 2 hours or more from departure airport, airlines are obligatory to provide you assistance. You are entitled to claim compensation for a cancelled flight if you were not informed about the cancellation at least 14 days before the scheduled time of departure. You can claim financial compensation for denied boarding, if your alternate flight is delayed for 2 hours or more.

Airlines can deny any compensation payment due to extraordinary bad weather. The situation might however be very different if the harsh weather conditions at any particular airport are constant or to be expected and other airlines are allowed to fly. Constant "normal bad weather" at the airport is not considered to be an extraordinary situation that would justify the cancellation or delay of flights. This is due to the fact that the airline has to take normal, and therefore foreseeable, weather conditions into account when scheduling flights i.e. when deciding whether or not to allow aircraft to fly to and from certain airports. You can find a comprehensive overview of court decisions regarding bad weather in the Claim Flights free case database.


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 travelled with Air Berlin 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, Air Berlin 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 travel 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 up to 1,500 km or less then you claim up to €250
  • If the distance is between 1,500 - 3,500 km then you claim up to €400
  • And if the distance is more than 3500 km and flight delays for 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 case of EU based flights travelling within Europe or to or from an EU Member State.
