Learn how to claim flight compensation from the airline.
How to get reimbursement for flight delay
SAS Scandinavian Airlines is the flag carrier of Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, and handles around 30 million passengers who travel domestic and international flights for leisure or business. If you flew with this airline to one of its 123 destinations, and you arrived late to the terminal, they should provide compensation for delayed flight.
It is explicitly written in the EU261 that the airline is obligated to pay reimbursement up to €600 for delayed/cancelled flight or denied boarding due to overbooking. When the plane arrives at the final destination with a delay of more than 3 hours, SAS Scandinavian Airlines must offer compensation to passengers. Depending on the distance of the air travel and how late the plane landed, you could get as much as €600 as compensation for your loss of time.
Claim your flight delay compensation with our help from SAS, by asking for help from the experts at AirClaim. Contact the airline for an answer about the reason for the delay/cancellation, keep evidence of your flight documents and expenses, if possible, then write the compensation letter or introduce your details on the airline’s form. Tell us about your air journey, what went wrong, then we will quote “EU261” to claim flight delay repay from SAS Scandinavian Airlines.
The best things to do when SAS announces flight cancellation
- Visit our website. Find more about the flight cancellation policies.
- Understand your rights. The European Regulation EU261 protects the rights of European and non-European passengers who travel to or from a European destination.
- Call the SAS customer support to re-schedule your air journey – and avoid the long lines at the ticket counter.
- Research whether other airlines provide alternative flights if you can.
- We will claim compensation for cancelled flight from SAS Scandinavian Airlines.
Why did SAS cancel your flight? Was it due to bad weather, technical problem, or strike of the airline members? When so-called “extraordinary circumstances cause the cancellation/delay”, passengers are no longer entitled to compensation from the airline. The airline will, however, provide vouchers for refreshments or accommodation, if it is necessary.
You find yourself at the airport on time, but your SAS flight won’t leave according to the schedule? The best thing to do is stay calm and avoid being rude or aggressive with the airline’s staff – they are not responsible for your trouble. SAS will probably come with several options for you, but choosing one of them could lead to the loss of your right to get reimbursement.
