When are you entitled to compensation?

The conditions are precisely defined in the European legislation (EU261/2004)

This legislation applies to ALL airlines for flights within or from Europe. Flights to Europe are only eligible when the flight has been conducted by a European airline.
Delay
You are entitled to compensation if your flight was delayed for three or more hours (at your final destination), unless exceptional conditions or force majeure occurred.
Cancellation
This depends, among other things, on when you were notified by the airline.
Downgrade
If you were assigned a seat in a lower class in contrast to the class indicated on your ticket.
Denied boarding
If you were not allowed to board and did nothing wrong (typically when the flight has been overbooked).

Would you like to continue sifting through the law? You can do so in our FAQ section or by checking out our new reports.

A happy customer

It’s never amusing to hear that your flight has been cancelled or delayed, but if you are able to let the Happy professionals take care of your compensation, you will only wonder why you even worried about a few unfortunate hours in a lifetime… Thanks a lot Happy Flights, we now have an initial budget for our next holiday destination…

A happy customer

What should have been a fun trip to London with the grandparents and children turned out to be a cancelled flight and subsequently a flight with considerable delay. Thanks to Happy Flights, we were able to claim a lovely compensation. And without any administrative inconvenience. We arranged everything by e-mail and were able to properly track the status of our file online. Even the grandparents thought it was a breeze. Thanks HF!
