Luxair delayed or cancelled flight — what are my passenger rights?

When you fly with Luxair, your air passenger rights under EU Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, also known as EU261. According to this regulation, if your flight is delayed or cancelled, you may be entitled to flight compensation.

Were you flying with Luxair from or to the United Kingdom? In that case, the 'The Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers' Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019' will also protect your rights. It's the British equivalent of EU261, enacted following Brexit.

Cancelled Luxair flight — refund and compensation rules

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

When can I claim compensation for a cancelled Luxair 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 Luxair flight?

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

Cancellation noticeAlternative flightCompensation

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

Luxair 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.

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


Even though Luxair mainly offers flights within the European Union, with LuxairTours, the airline operates on a larger scale to Africa and the Middle East.

Luxair is a Luxembourg airline and therefore is headquartered in Europe. As a result, EU261 applies to all Luxair flights that are delayed or cancelled.

However, for your reference, 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 Luxair deny me compensation?

We call extraordinary circumstances situations in which the airline is not the party to blame for the delay or cancellation of your flight. If any of the following conditions apply to your Luxair 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.
