Did you have a delayed or canceled flight? You may be entitled to compensation with AirHelp. Don't pass up this opportunity!
Your Air Passenger Rights explained
Air passenger rights involve specific laws that support travellers and advocate for some kind of compensation when people face flight disruptions caused by the airlines.
Though the contours of the law vary from country to country, these types of laws are prevalent domestically and internationally (in the US, Europe, and beyond). In essence, if a person travels on an aircraft, they have legal rights.
The problem is that many people are not aware that the law is on their side or even that passenger rights exist. In fact, globally 85% of air passengers do not know their rights.
Know Your Rights
The Montreal Convention is the oldest treaty created to protect passengers’ rights and it applies to most international flights. In case of a physical injury resulting from a flight accident, for example, airlines are liable for up to EUR 140,000 (to cover medical expenses). Passengers are eligible for up to EUR 1,400 for damages suffered as a result of lost or destroyed luggage.
The European Regulation EC261 rule is an extensive bit of legislation that requires airlines to compensate passengers in the event of:
- Denied boarding
- Flight cancellation
- Long delay of flights (three or more hours)
Under EC261 you may be eligible for compensation reaching up to EUR 600 if your flight is delayed by more than 3 hours or gets canceled. AirHelp helps air passengers around the world secure compensation for delayed, canceled, or overbooked flights.
