Alitalia flight compensation
When you travel by plane to or from a European destination, your rights are protected. The European Regulation EU 261 forces Alitalia to compensate you for delayed/cancelled flights when the reason for the disruption was the airline’s fault. Were you their passenger, and you didn’t arrive at your destination on time? You might be eligible for flight compensation from Alitalia.
Do you qualify for flight delay compensation from Alitalia?
The flag carrier of Italy has the head office at Fiumicino, Rome, Italy, and operates air trips to 68 international destinations and 26 domestic flights. Alitalia has one of the most modern fleets in the world, as it transports air passengers with 98 aircraft. As for the travellers’ number, over 22 million passengers flew with Alitalia during the last year.
The air company is known as one of the most punctual airlines in the world. However, even Alitalia deals with flight disruptions every once in a while. When that happens, get help from AirClaim to write your compensation claim for the delayed flight.
If you travelled with Alitalia to or from an EU destination, you got to the airport on time, and your journey was delayed by more than 3 hours, you might qualify for flight delay compensation. Before filling the papers and enforcing your rights to the airline, the experts at AirClaim instruct searching for the real reason behind the delay.
Obtain a written statement from the Alitalia staff. If the delay was due to “extraordinary circumstances,” you are not entitled to reimbursement for the delayed flight. The crew will, however, provide vouchers for food and drinks for every 2-3 hours of waiting. But if the disruption occurs because of a mechanical issue, insufficient crew, or other reasons that fall under the airline’s control, they have to reimburse you – and you should request the assistance of AirClaim to claim flight delay compensation.
How much flight cancellation compensation should you receive?
First of all, you should know that Alitalia could not guarantee flight schedules. Unforeseen problems may arise – problems that may or may not be under the airline’s responsibility – and your air travel could be cancelled one month before leaving, 10 days before the scheduled departure, or even in the same day when you should have left.
It all depends on when you are notified of the cancellation of your air trip. If Alitalia calls less than 2 weeks before the scheduled travel, you can claim flight cancellation compensation up to 600 EUR. The first step the airline makes is to rebook you on the next flight, if you agree. In this case, they should provide the same class of service as your original flight. You won’t have to pay additional fees – moreover, if the reroute flight gets to your final destination 3 hours later than your scheduled arrival, they must reimburse you for the loss of time – and you should claim flight cancellation compensation.
