What are Your Passengers Rights with Olympic Air?

EU 261 protects your rights, regardless of the airline that you’re traveling on, as long as you’re in the European Union or meet other qualifying circumstances. Depending on the circumstances of your delay or cancellation, you have the right to a refund, rerouting, and care, including meals, accommodation, and more.

Flight Delay Compensation

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.

  • Flights up to 1,500 km: €250
  • Flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km: €400
  • Flights over 3,500 km: €600

Flight Cancellation Compensation

You’ll need to contact customer service to receive your compensation, which can be issued as non-refundable or refundable vouchers.

  • Flights up to 1,500 km: €250
  • Flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km: €400
