    Don't Delay In Claiming Compensation From British Airways

    As the air passenger traffic exceeds one hundred million annually, British Airways flights may get delayed or canceled. According to EU flight delay compensation rules, air passengers should not tolerate the inconvenienced caused to them and they should demand compensation from British Airways Airline. EC Regulation 261/2004 entitles British Airways flight passengers to claim up to 600€ for delays of 3 hours or more.

    EC Regulation 261/2004 EU Rights For BA Flight Passengers

    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 also note that compensation is subject to certain conditions and exceptions. There will be no compensation for delay / cancellation caused due to extraordinary circumstances (such as extremely bad weather conditions, Tsunami, or any other 'Act Of God'), under which such delay / cancellation becomes uncontrollable.

    An example of such situations includes extreme bad weather or security concerns such as fear of 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 BA flights and your flight had 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, BA flight passengers can claim up to 600€ as compensation. This takes into account the distance that you travel both within Europe and Outside Europe and the duration of 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 distance of the flight is more than 3500 km and delay was of 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
