We all consider a flight’s cancellation a big complication. Especially when this disrupts your business or holiday plans. There is nothing worse while travelling than finding out that you’re going to have to spend 2 days fewer in the tropical island you were travelling to. Or, all of the sudden, hearing that you will have to cram 3 important meeting into 1 working day. All because your flight was cancelled.
Do not despair however, you may be entitled to EUR 250, 400 or 600 in compensation for your flight’s cancellation.
How is that possible? Well your rights as an air passenger are protected by Regulation EC 261/2004. That means a simple thing; if your flight was cancelled you may be entitled to financial compensation. Great news! We know.
