I travelled with Lufthansa 3 years ago and my flight was disrupted. How far back can I claim flight compensation?

Last updated on November 2, 2018

Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004 does not define the exact time frame for flight claim application. Time limits for flight claim applications differ in various countries. For example, Belgium has 1 year, Germany 3 years, Luxemburg 10 years time frame to apply for flight claim compensation.
