Check Your Claim Eligibility


Once your claim is on its way, typically, airlines aim to respond within six weeks. However, if there’s a radio silence, consider taking your complaint to the aviation regulatory authority in the country of the incident. Their intervention can keep airlines in check, ensuring they adhere to passenger rights.

Sometimes, airlines might resist your claim. If faced with such resistance, flight compensation specialists can stand in your corner, fighting to secure the compensation you’re due. Their efforts may range from legal processes to negotiations, and they might charge a fee from your received compensation.
