UTair Aviation is one of the top three leading airlines of Russia as a passenger carrier and is headquartered at Khanty-Mansiysk Airport. The company is also one of the world’s leading helicopter operators with operations in South-East Asia and Europe apart from dominating in its region. The airline company mostly operates domestic flights with some international services with its chopper services mostly used to support the people in the oil and gas industry. The airline subsidiaries include UTair Cargo & Vostok Aviation Company.

Do the flights of this airline gets delayed or cancelled?

Being one of the popular airlines in Russia and in Europe doesn’t stop the flight from getting delayed or cancelled. The delay or cancellation can be for various reasons such as natural calamities like bad weather, earthquake, tsunami, or technical faults of the engine or strike or some un-imaginable incident. Now incidents which involve technical faults or strike which could have been easily handled by the airline company but failed to address it leading to the passenger’s distress is something you will have to worry about.

So what can you do?

UTair Aviation been registered under the EU law which follows EC Regulation 261/2004, which allows a passenger to claim compensation for flight delays of more than 3 hours, cancelled without prior notice or if passengers are denied boarding due to overselling of tickets. The EU law 261/2004, allows its passenger to get up to €600 if they face inconvenience due to flight delay, flight cancellation or overbooking. So a passenger can always contact the airlines through emails or the customer care numbers for the compensations.

What if the UTair Aviation doesn’t help you?

In scenarios, If you are the passenger travelled with an EU airline and you are not getting any help from UTair Aviation airline for your delayed or cancelled flight, then you can contact us (Claim Flights) to claim compensation. We have a special team in place which has access to all the flight information helping you get the compensation easily.

But there are conditions where you won’t get any compensation like:

  • If there is a flight cancellation/ delay due to bad weather, or some natural calamity
  • If an alternate transport has been provided at the earliest possible time for your cancelled flight.

An air passenger must be aware of their rights and we help them to know the Air Passenger rights in case of flight delay, flight cancellation or in case of denied boarding which happens due to overselling of tickets. Even an EU passenger can claim compensation for the flights that had been delayed or cancelled a few years ago. To know how much you can claim, use our flight compensation calculator.
