Singapore Airlines flight compensation — what are my rights?

Because Singapore Airlines is a non-EU airline, your rights to flight compensation are only protected in certain circumstances by British and European regulations.

To be eligible for Singapore Airlines flight compensation, your delayed or cancelled flight must have originated in the United Kingdom or the European Union.

If your Singapore Airlines flight was

  • Delayed by more than 3 hours upon arrival

  • Cancelled within 14 days of the scheduled departure

  • Disrupted at the fault of the airline

Please note: If your flight was delayed or cancelled due to "extraordinary circumstances," you may not be able to get compensation. The airline needs to be responsible for the disruption in order to provide compensation to affected passengers.

Unfortunately, your passengers' rights are not protected by relevant UK/EU legislation when flying to the UK/EU on an airline headquartered outside of the UK/EU.

More information can be found in the table below.

Extraordinary circumstances — can Singapore Airlines deny me compensation?

Even if your flight was delayed for 3+ hours or cancelled at the last minute, Singapore Airlines has the right to refuse compensation if the disruption was caused by a third party or a force majeure. We refer to such situations as extraordinary circumstances.

The following are some of the 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.
