Frequently Asked Questions - Delays and Cancellations at Dublin Airport 

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

Unfortunately, when the airline is not responsible for the delay or cancellation, you are not entitled to flight compensation or a refund. These are referred to as extraordinary circumstances, which happen when a third party or unexpected event causes a delay or cancellation.

Here are some examples of 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.

How much time do I have to submit my claim for compensation and/or refund?

The time limit for submitting a flight compensation claim for a delayed or cancelled flight at Dublin Airport is 6 years from the date of the flight according to British regulation. However, it is always best to make your claim as soon as possible, as the longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to gather the necessary evidence to support your claim.
