Frequently Asked Questions – Delays and cancellations at Edinburgh Airport

1. Delays and cancellations at Edinburgh Airport: can the airline deny my claim?

There are a few instances, nevertheless, in which an airline is not required to compensate you for a cancelled or delayed flight. When a third party or unexpected event renders the airline not responsible for the delay or cancellation, these situations are referred to as "extraordinary circumstances."

Some of these situations are as follows:

  • 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?

You have 5 years from the date of the flight's departure or arrival in Scotland to submit a claim. You have 6 years to make a claim if you travel by air to or from another location in the United Kingdom

About Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is the 6th busiest UK airport located in Scotland’s capital city and boasts an average of 14.7 million passengers per year. Over 40 airlines travel to over 150 locations globally on approximately 221 different routes from the airport's single terminal and one runway. The busiest routes include flights to Dublin, Amsterdam, and Paris-Charles de Gaulle. The airport welcomes travellers from all over the world, from UK-based airlines like EasyJet to international carriers like Air Canada.

As long as you have a layover of at least five hours, you are in a good position to observe Edinburgh rather than the airport traffic. About 9 miles west of the city centre is where you'll find the airport. Before boarding the bus or tram to get into the city, check your bags in the arrivals area. Every ten minutes, the Airport Link 100 bus leaves towards Waverley Bridge, which is located in the centre of the Old Town, and it reaches there in around 30 minutes. You can purchase a one-way fare or a discounted round-trip on the Edinburgh Trams, which run every 7 minutes and take roughly 30 minutes. Also available are taxis.
