Flight compensation with Compensair
Claim up to €600 per passenger in the case of a delayed flight, cancelled flight, denied boarding or missed connection.

Like millions of air passengers, I've been there waiting for the delayed departure or a rescheduled flight, or worse finding out my flight has been cancelled. I know all too well how powerless you feel and how unfair it is if it impacts your holiday.
I found out last year from someone at work that I was entitled to up to €600 compensation when one of my flights was cancelled. I trowelled through the internet to find out more information. Eventually I found the correct sight to apply. Unfortunately for me I hadn’t kept the necessary flight details which seemed to make it impossible to continue with the compensation. After a frustrating call to Easy Jet I unfortunately hit another closed door when they too couldn’t provide the details the my flight I was booked on. Instead of feeling frustrated or getting a tad angry like myself, I can now share Compensair who make the whole process painless. Submitting a claim is absolutely free and Сompensair will only charge their 25% success fee if you get your compensation. With their easy application form I’d say it’s worth it.
Here’s what to do if your flight is delayed or cancelled – your rights and what you can do to help yourself when in this situation. The only requirement is that your disrupted flight needed to have happened in the last six years and within the EU. You just need to fill in a simple claim form and Compensair will handle all the paperwork, submit the claim and take care of all the further communication with the airline to settle your case. Checking if your flight is eligible for compensation. By law, you could be owed up to €600 per person. Whether your flight was delayed, cancelled or you were refused boarding, the Compensair site will you how much you’re owed within minutes!
First are you eligible for flight compensation?
In accordance with EU Regulation 261/2004 a passenger is entitled to 250-600 euros of compensation in case of:
Flight delay more than 3 hours
Denied boarding due to overbooking
Missed connection due to a delay of the first segment (you arrived at your destination more than 3 hours later than planned)
