Check Your Claim Eligibility


Upon submission, you can generally anticipate a response from the airline within a span of six weeks. But this isn’t set in stone. If there’s radio silence, you can channel your claim to the enforcing authority in the country where the delay transpired. Although they may not have the mandate to overturn the airline’s decision, it’s crucial for compliance monitoring.

Bear in mind, airlines sometimes might challenge your claim, possibly to sidestep payment. If you find yourself in such a situation, flight delay compensation companies can be your advocates, ensuring you aren’t shortchanged. They might have to resort to legal avenues or steer negotiations, and for this, they might deduce a fee from your compensation.

Remember, time lost is never regained, and it’s only just that you get compensated for any inconveniences suffered. Our tailored EC261/2004 form is your first step towards this end.
