Extraordinary circumstances — can AlbaStar deny me compensation?

If the disruption was caused by a third party or force majeure — and therefore it is not the airline’s fault — AlbaStar is not obliged to pay compensation. These situations are called 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.

Be aware though that airlines sometimes say that extraordinary circumstances occurred even if that was not the case. They do it in an attempt to avoid paying out the compensation to passengers.
