What happens if you miss your flight because of a delay? When can I apply for delayed flight missed connection compensation? How long does a flight have to be delayed to get compensation?

Last updated on November 6, 2018

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 delayed flight missed connection compensation. Unfortunately, if you bought your tickets separately with different reference numbers, this means that your flights are not connecting flights and their disruption must be estimated separately. In other words, at least one of your flights has to be delayed for 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.
