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

When you fly with Blue Air, your rights are protected under EU Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, also known as EU261. This regulation states that if your flight is delayed or cancelled, you may be entitled to flight compensation.

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

Cancelled Blue Air flight — refund and compensation rules

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the cancellation of your Blue Air flight, you may be entitled to a ticket refund, compensation of up to £520, or both.

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

If your flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days before the scheduled departure date, you may be eligible for flight compensation.

You must also consider extraordinary circumstances, such as a natural disaster that prevents the flight from taking off — if these unusual circumstances apply to your flight, you may be ineligible for compensation.

When can I claim a refund for my cancelled Blue Air flight?

If your flight was cancelled and you did not take the airline's alternative flight, you may be eligible for a Blue Air ticket refund. You are also entitled to a ticket refund if you were not offered an alternative flight.

Cancellation noticeAlternative flightCompensation
Fewer than 7 days in advanceDeparts 1h+ earlier or arrived 2h+ laterYes
7-14 days in advanceDeparts 2h+ earlier or arrived 4h+ laterYes
Fewer than 14 days in advanceNo alternative flight offeredYes + refund

Blue Air 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. This is for two main reasons:

  1. Accepting a travel voucher binds you to fly with the same airline again. In addition, the airline usually assigns a time limit for redeeming the voucher.

  2. If the airline declares bankruptcy, you may be unable to convert your voucher into a cash refund — in other words, your money will be lost.

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

Overbooking is a common occurrence among airlines. They 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 Blue Air to a non-EU country. Can I still claim compensation?

You certainly can. Blue Air is a Romanian airline that operates within the European Union. As a result, EU261 applies to all Blue Air flights that are delayed or cancelled.

However, if you were flying with a non-EU/non-UK airline, the situation might be different. Details can be found in the table below.

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 Blue Air deny me compensation?

We refer to extraordinary circumstances as situations in which the airline is not to blame for the delay or cancellation. If any of the following conditions apply to your Blue Air flight delay or cancellation, you may be ineligible for flight compensation (n.b. this list is non-exhaustive):

  • 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 did not! They do so to avoid having to pay out flight compensation to passengers.
