When your flight is delayed more than two hours, you are entitled to basic care, including meals, refreshments, hotel accommodation and transportation (where applicable), and access to communication. If your delay is three hours or more, you can also request reimbursement and transportation to your point of origin.

You are also entitled to compensation, which can be paid as a non-fundable transportation voucher or refundable voucher.
