In which cases is there a right to compensation?

Any flight that arrives at its destination with a delay of at least 3 hours, is canceled less than 14 days before departure or is denied boarding is entitled to compensation, provided that the causes of the unforeseen event are attributable to the airline and fall within the scope of EU regulations. In exceptional circumstances, the airline is exempt from paying compensation. The flight must have taken off or landed in a European country; in the latter case, the airline’s registered office must also be in an EU member state. The amount of compensation does not depend on the price of the ticket or the reason for the trip, and the claims apply to flights that are no more than 3, 5, and 6 years old in Germany, France, and the UK, respectively. Important: Do not let your airline excuse you! Hotel or meal vouchers or gift vouchers do not release the airline from paying your compensation.

In these cases, it is possible to claim compensation:

  • Delays: Your flight has arrived at its destination more than 3 hours late.
  • Cancellations: You were informed of the cancellation less than 14 days before departure.
  • Overbooking: The airline overbooks your flight and you can no longer find a seat on board.
  • Missed connecting flight: You miss your connecting flight and reach your final destination with a delay of 3 hours or more.

The amount of compensation depends on the flight distance:

  • Short-haul flights – less than 1500 km – €250 compensation for affected passengers.
  • Medium-haul flights – between 1500 km and 3500 km – entitlement to €400 compensation per passenger
  • Long-haul flights – more than 3500 km – entitlement to €600 compensation for the affected passengers

What are my passenger rights if my flight is canceled due to a strike at Gothenburg Airport?

If your flight is due to depart from Gothenburg Airport and there is a strike at the airport in question, first check whether your flight is affected by the cancelations due to the strike. According to the EU Passenger Rights Regulation, you are entitled to alternative transportation or a refund of the ticket price. You may also be entitled to compensation if there are no extraordinary circumstances and it is an internal airline strike, for example. Contact your airline for more information about replacement transportation, rebooking or ticket refunds, as well as local services such as meals and, if necessary, accommodation and transportation to the hotel.

Can I receive flight compensation if my flight at Gothenburg Airport is delayed or canceled due to a strike?

A flight cancelation or a significant delay of more than three hours due to a strike is often considered an extraordinary circumstance, provided the strike is not the fault of the airline or the airline’s staff. There is no entitlement to compensation in exceptional circumstances. Nevertheless, passengers should check their rights to basic care and catering services at Gothenburg Airport. This includes meals, refreshments and, if necessary, accommodation, depending on the length of the delay and the flight route. Also important to know: If your flight is canceled because the airline staff is on strike, then you are entitled to your ticket price refund, alternative transportation, meals on site and additional compensation.
