Air Europa delayed or cancelled flight — what are my passenger rights?

As Air Europa is a Spanish airline, when your Air Europa flight gets cancelled or delayed, your rights are protected under EU Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, also known as EU261. The regulation states that if your flight is delayed or cancelled, you may be entitled to flight compensation.

Were you flying with Air Europa from or to the UK? In that case, your rights are also protected by the 'The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers' Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019'. It's a British version of EU261, enacted after Brexit.

You can claim for Air Europa flights from up to 6 years ago.

When can I claim compensation for a cancelled Air Europa flight?

If your Air Europa flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days before the scheduled departure of your flight, you could claim cancelled flight compensation.

You must also consider extraordinary circumstances, such as a natural disaster preventing the flight’s takeoff — if these extraordinary circumstances apply to your flight, you may not be eligible for compensation.

Air Europa is offering me a travel voucher instead of a refund — should I accept it?

We do not advise accepting a travel voucher in lieu of a refund. Here is why:

  1. Accepting a travel voucher forces you to fly with the same airline in the future. Also, the airline usually assigns a deadline to use the voucher.

  2. If the airline declares bankruptcy, you might no longer be able to convert your voucher into a cash refund — in other words, your money will be lost.

Air Europa overbooked flight — get a refund, compensation and extra care

Overbooked flights happen more often than you could think! Airlines frequently sell more tickets than there are seats on the plane, and if they can't find enough volunteers to give up their reservations, people may be denied boarding against their will.

I was flying with Air Europa to a non-EU country. Can I still claim compensation?

Yes, you can. Air Europa is an airline headquartered in Spain and therefore in the European Union. Because of this, EU261 applies to all overbooked, cancelled and delayed Air Europa flights.

However, it’s worth noting that the situation might be different if you were flying with a non-EU/non-UK airline. See the table below for details.

Type of flightExampleCompensation
Flying with a British carrierTokyo to London with British AirwaysYes
Flying with a EU carrierAmsterdam to London with KLMYes
Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier from the UKLondon to Tokyo with Japan AirlinesYes
Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier to the UKTokyo to London with Japan AirlinesNo

Extraordinary circumstances — can Air Europa deny me compensation?

If the Air Europa was not responsible for the delay, cancellation or denied boarding, they can deny your claim for flight compensation. Those situations are referred to as Extraordinary Circumstances.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of most common extraordinary circumstances:

  • 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.

You should be aware, however, that airlines sometimes claim that extraordinary circumstances occurred when they actually did not! They do so in hope of avoiding having to pay out flight compensation to passengers.
