Air Algérie flight compensation — what are my rights?

Because Air Algérie is a non-EU airline, your rights to flight compensation may not always be protected by British or EU law.

In order for you to be eligible for Air Algérie flight compensation, your delayed or cancelled flight must have departed from a UK or EU airport.

In general, it makes no difference which airline you fly with if you are flying from the United Kingdom or Europe.

Unfortunately, when flying to the UK/EU on a non-EU airline, your passengers' rights are not protected under British and European flight compensation regulations.

More information on this can be found in the table below.

Delayed Air Algérie flight — get compensation.

Under the British and European regulations, if your Air Algérie flight from the UK/EU was delayed for more than 3 hours, you are likely entitled to flight compensation. Compensation is only available if the airline is the party at fault for the delay; if the delay was caused by a third party or by force majeure, compensation is not applicable.

To check if you are eligible for compensation, use our no-obligation Claim Calculator. If you are eligible, we can handle the entire claim on a "no win, no fee" basis and even fight for your rights in court if necessary!

Extraordinary circumstances — can Air Algérie deny me compensation?

When the delay or cancellation was caused by a third party or force majeure, Air Algérie has the possibility to refuse compensation. Those situations are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.

Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are:

  • Bad weather conditions, such as thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.

  • A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry (for example, a strike of air traffic control workers at a specific airport).

    However, a strike of the airline's crew is not considered an extraordinary circumstance!

  • Political circumstances, such as a terrorist attack or general security risk due to political unrest.

  • Natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions and hurricanes.

  • A collision between the aircraft and birds or other foreign objects.

  • An ill or unruly passenger.

  • Flight delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.

If your Air Algérie flight was not departing from the UK or the EU, you are not entitled to flight compensation under the British and European regulations.

Beware: airlines sometimes claim that an extraordinary circumstance happened, even if that was not the case! They do it to avoid paying out compensation.
