Passengers must note that flight delay compensation is subject to certain conditions and exceptions. There will be no compensation for a delays / cancellations caused by an extraordinary circumstance, under which such delays / cancellations 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 EU Regulation 261 of 2004.
