Frequently Asked Questions – Delayed or cancelled flight at Amsterdam Schipol Airport

Delays and cancellations at Schiphol: can the airline deny my claim?

Unfortunately, there are situations when the airline won’t be able to provide flight compensation for your delayed or cancelled flights. Those situations are called extraordinary circumstances: this is when the delay or cancellation happened because of a third party or an unforeseen event and, therefore, is not the airline’s fault.

Here are a few examples of those situations:

  • 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.

How much time do I have to submit my flight compensation claim?

This depends on the respective regulations in the country of departure, the country of arrival and the country where the airline is based.

For example, if you had a flight from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to London Heathrow operated by Air France, you would be able to claim under the:

  • Dutch law: 2 years

  • British law: 6 years

  • French law: 5 years
