Flight Cancellations or Reschedule

Denied Boarding, cancellation, or long delay of flights cause serious trouble and inconvenience to passengers, this is why there are Regulations that were created to provide basic protection for passengers.

During a Flight Disruption

Airlines will be required to keep passengers regularly informed if there is a flight disruption (flight and tarmac delays; flight cancellations; and denials of boarding).


Air carriers will have to tell passengers why their flight has been disrupted as soon as is feasible. This information will have to be provided through:

  • an audible announcement;

  • a visible announcement, upon request; and

  • the available communication method the passenger has selected (e.g., email, SMS).

Flight Cancellation Rights

Passengers whose flights are cancelled should be able either to obtain reimbursement of their tickets or to obtain re-routing under satisfactory conditions, and should be adequately cared for while awaiting a later flight. As under the Montreal Convention, obligations on operating air carriers should be limited or excluded in cases where an event has been caused by extraordinary circumstances which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures had been taken.

Compensations for Flight Cancelled

All passengers have also the right to compensation by the operating air carrier unless they are informed of the cancellation at least two weeks before the scheduled time of departure and the cause is extraordinary.

EU & UK flight cancellation rights

If you traveled on a European airline or left the European Union or the UK on any foreign airline, you may be entitled to financial compensation if the incident is not considered extraordinary.
