Can you claim compensation for missing connecting flight? Can I apply for missed connection flight compensation if my first flight was overbooked?

Last updated on November 6, 2018

It depends on the reference number. If you paid for both connection flight tickets at once – by one bank transfer, and your arrival in your final destination was more than 3 hours later than it was planned, you can apply and receive overbooked flight missed connection compensation. Unfortunately, if you bought your tickets separately with different reference numbers, your flights are not connecting flights and their disruption must be estimated separately. In other words, at least one of your flights arrival must be late more than for 3 hours in order to receive compensation. The best way to claim is to choose the airline claim company from our Best Companies list.
