How long does it take to get flight delay compensation?
Qatar Airways is the state-owned flag of Qatar and operates domestic and international flights to over 170 destinations worldwide. The airline headquartered in the Qatar Airways Tower in Doha has an impressive fleet of more than 220 aircraft which transported over 35 million passengers in 2018.
You had a reservation for a flight with Qatar Airways, and your trip was disrupted or diverted? You might be entitled to flight delay/cancellation compensation.
According to the European legislation EU261, if you traveled to or from a European airport and your trip was delayed by more than 3 hours, you can request up to 600 EUR flight delay compensation from Qatar Airways if it was the airline that operated the flight. Listen to the advice of the AirClaim experts, and get in touch with the airline when you want all the details regarding how to make a claim.
Once you gather your information and fill the compensation form on our website, it can take a while until the airline would answer. If the delay was because of their fault, Qatar Airways could compensate you as soon as a few days after receiving your request. But the truth is that most airlines aren’t happy to pay whenever passengers ask for reimbursement.
It could take up to several months until they finally answer. Perhaps they will even reject your claim. In this case, we will have to address the Civil Aviation Authority for further investigations. To shorten and simplify the process, hire the AirClaim professionals to handle the negotiations and retrieve what is yours.
