Each affected passenger can claim compensation for flight delays and cancellations, as long as there are no extraordinary circumstances.
We'll just need a few contact details and information about your flight, to create a compensation claim letter that you can send to your airline.
Before starting you'll need to know your flight number and a copy of your tickets or any proof of purchase.
Please note if you were flying into the UK from outside of Europe, it will need to have been on an EU-based airline for your compensation claim to be valid.
