Finnair flight compensation
Were you unlucky to arrive at your destination with a flight delay of over 3 hours? It may not be bad luck entirely. Did you check in on time to your travel with Finnair? If the cause of the flight delay was under the airline’s control, you are entitled to reimbursement up to 600 EUR. Here’s what to do to claim flight compensation from Finnair.
How much can you receive flight delay compensation from Finnair?
The flag carrier and the largest airline of Finland, Finnair has a modern fleet of over 70 aircraft that operates flights to over 130 destinations all across the globe. Were you one of the 12 million passengers who travelled with Finnair in 2018, and your air journey was disrupted? If the airline was to blame, you could receive up to 600 EUR in compensation.
The amount of reimbursement you can claim from Finnair depends on several circumstances:
- Were you delayed more than 3 hours from the scheduled arrival time?
- Was the reason for the delay under Finnair’s responsibility (mechanical problem, insufficient crew, catering issues, denied boarding due to overbooking)?
- How long was the distance of the air journey (up to 1,500 km, between 1,500 and 3,500 km, more than 3,500km)?
- Was the flight in the last 6 years?
Depending on your answers to these questions, you could receive from 250 EUR to 600 EUR compensation for the delayed flight. The next steps to follow are introducing your information on the AirClaim calculator to find out exactly how much to request. Then, our customer service can contact for you the Finnair airline, we will tell them about your situation, and ask them a written response with the reason why your flight was delayed. When you fill the application form on our website to claim reimbursement, we will use the “EU 261” – which is the European Regulation that protects air passengers who travel to or from a European destination.
Should you choose a ticket refund or flight cancellation compensation?
The AirClaim professionals explain the moment when Finnair announces the cancellation of your air journey is essential. If they call you 14 days or less before the scheduled departure, you are eligible for flight cancellation compensation. The EU 261 makes it clear that the airline – in this case, Finnair – must offer you these options:
- Partial or full refund of your original ticket and a return flight to the original departure destination, if needed.
- Alternative transport to your final destination at the earliest possible.
- A new ticket to your destination at a later date – when you want.
If you choose to get a refund for your original ticket, Finnair must pay the money within 7 days after your request. Plus, they might explicitly say that this exonerates them from further compensations. If you choose one of the other options, get in touch with AirClaim and find how to request reimbursement for cancelled flight.
