Current EU laws are in place to compensate passengers for long delays and cancellations. Financial compensation can be sought if a flight is cancelled less that 2 weeks before the scheduled departure, and tickets may be refundable if a delay exceeds 5 hours. Airlines may also be eligible to pay damages resulting from delays to a maximum of around £4000 (€ 4 800.)
MEPs have stressed the need to clearly inform passengers of their rights at the time of booking and during travel. They have also called for improved price transparency and an end to unwarranted extra costs such as administration fees or credit card transaction costs.
Something we’d all like to see!
