If you have encountered flight cancellations or delays with Flybe, it is crucial to understand that your rights as an air passenger are protected by British regulations. In certain situations, you may be entitled to Flybe compensation of up to £520 and a full refund of the ticket price for your cancelled Flybe flight.

  • Was your Flybe flight cancelled? If you did not take an alternative flight offered by the airline, you are entitled to a refund. Additionally, if the flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days before departure, you might be entitled to cancelled Flybe flight compensation.

  • Regardless of the flight disruption or its cause, airlines must provide passengers with special assistance, known as the "right to care.” This includes: food and beverage vouchers, communication services, and, if needed, accommodations and transportation. You can claim those directly at the airline’s service desk at the airport, if the airline refuses to give you a voucher, just go and buy what you need — they will have to pay you back those expenses (as long as they are reasonable).

Warning: If your flight was delayed or cancelled because of “extraordinary circumstance”, you won’t be entitled to flight compensation as the airline needs to be responsible for the flight disruption to provide compensation to passengers.
