You must know about your rights on flight delays and claim your money back airlines owes of yours.


Since Air France and its subsidiaries are European regulated airlines, travelling with them within Europe or away from Europe will be governed by the European Law. Under EU law, as per Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, flight passenger is entitled to claim up to 600€ (£450) for delayed or cancelled flights. This comes into effect only when there is a delay of more than 3 hours or cancelled without any extraordinary circumstances such as bad weather or earthquake or for that matter any natural calamity. If the delay or cancellation was caused due to their negligence then you should get compensation from the airline. In cases, flight getting delayed by 2 ½ hours from the scheduled arrival time and it lands on the airport but doesn’t open the door to alight causing a further delay of 30 mins, you can claim compensation from the airlines as it amounts to 3 hours delay in total. And also, if you have booked your tickets with any of these airlines, Air France/ Transavia / HOP! and its denied boarding due to overbooked flights, cancelled their flight without any prior notice and if their flight delays on arrival for 3 hours or more then you can demand compensation from the airline.

EC Regulation 261/2004

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 or cancellation caused by an extraordinary circumstance, under which such delay or 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 France 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 the case of EU based flights travelling within Europe or to or from an EU Member State.
