Korean Air Flight Delays Or Cancellations Compensation

Korean Air passengers may sometimes face problems and issues such as flight delays, cancellations and denied boarding. This is an experience common to all airlines, which may happen due to overbooking, employee strikes and other factors. The airline becomes liable to compensate passengers for the inconvenience caused to them such as flight delays or cancellations, where the fault is attributable to the airline.

Know your rights to claim Korean Air flight delay or cancellation compensation

EU Regulation 261 of 2004 established the common rule for compensation and reimbursements that are applicable to any airline whose destination origin is in the EU. For flight delays, cancellations or denied boarding, passengers can claim up to 600€ from airlines as per EC Regulation 261/2004.

Flight delay compensation can be claimed only if your flight was delayed at the arrival airport for more than 3 hours than the scheduled arrival time. If your flight has been delayed at departure but arrives within the stipulated time of arrival, then you won't be able to make your claim. In cases where the flight has been delayed to depart but arrives 10 minutes before the 3-hour deadline, you cannot claim compensation from the airlines.

So if you are one of the victims of Korean Air flight delays or flight cancellations, you can claim compensation up to 600€ in accordance with EC Regulation 261 of 2004. To know how much you can claim from Korean Air you can make use of our Flight Delay Compensation Calculator.


Korean Air was founded as Korean National Airlines in 1946, but it only commenced operations in 1969 after its privatisation by the state. Its parent company is the Hanjin Group. Korean Air is the largest South-Korean airline. Its headquarters are located in Seoul. In 2012, Business Traveller readers voted it as the best Asian airline.

At Claim Flights, we are UK based facilitators and experts in EU compensation claims. Our specializations include filing EU compensation claims with the airline companies and disseminating information on EU air passenger rights. It is our belief that the lower incidence of claim filing even in the most genuine cases is due to the passengers’ lack of knowledge of their rights or the incorrect perception that EU claims are difficult to process.
With our help, passengers can understand, process and follow their EU compensation claims. Our chat option, which is available on our website, can be availed of by the passengers to talk directly with our legal experts. Our step-by-step guide can be used by the passengers to understand the entire process their claim will go through. Our Delayed Flight Compensation Calculator can be used to get an estimate of the compensation amount due to the passenger in their particular case.

Our particular expertise is in the area of filing and processing EU claims. Here the entire process is undertaken by us and we only charge a commission for our services when the passenger has actually received the compensation amount due to them by the airlines in their bank account. So, passengers can file their EU claims through us where we actively pursue the claim or use our resources to file and follow claims by themselves.
