Frequently Asked Questions — Delays and cancellations at Bristol Airport

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

An airline may, however, occasionally find itself unable to make up for a delayed or cancelled flight. These situations, which are referred to as "extraordinary circumstances," take place when a third party or unanticipated event renders the delay or cancellation inevitable and disqualifies the airline from responsibility.

Here are some examples of those 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.

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

If you are travelling to or from the United Kingdom, you have 6 years to file a claim for flight compensation and/or refund. Scotland is the only exception in the UK, where you have 5 years to submit a claim.
