Delays and cancellations at Heathrow — Frequently Asked Question

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

Unfortunately, there are times when an airline is unable to compensate you for a delayed or cancelled flight. These are referred to as "extraordinary circumstances" and they occur when a third party or unforeseeable incident caused the delay or cancellation, negating the airline's responsibility.

Some examples of those 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.

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

If you were flying to or from Heathrow, you have 6 years to file a claim for flight compensation and/or a refund under British law

About Heathrow Airport

London Heathrow Airport (LHR), also known as London Airport from 1966, is a huge international airport in London, England. Of the six international airports servicing Greater London, it is the largest.

London Heathrow is the busiest airport in the UK. More than 80 airlines use Heathrow Airport to connect to 185 destinations across 84 countries. The airport serves as both a base for Virgin Atlantic and British Airways' main hub. It contains a cargo terminal as well as four passenger terminals numbered from 2 to 5.

For those with long layovers, around six hours or more, you can easily head into London’s city centre to explore. The Heathrow express train, which leaves every 15 minutes and travels to Paddington Station in around 20 minutes, is your best option. The underground/Tube, is less expensive but will take around an hour, or London black taxis, which are substantially more expensive, are your other options. You can use the journey planner to get a detailed door-to-door itinerary, timetables, and instructions to or from Heathrow by car or public transportation.
