Were you offered a voucher for your cancelled flight from Berlin? Here’s what you should know. 

Generally speaking, we advise against accepting a travel voucher in place of a cash return. This is the case for the following explanations:

  1. Accepting a travel voucher requires booking a second journey with the same airline that you've already had issues with. In addition, airlines typically specify a deadline for using a voucher.

  2. You might not be able to turn your voucher into a cash refund if the airline files for bankruptcy, which would mean you would lose your money.

Flight to Berlin delayed or cancelled, am I also entitled to flight compensation?

There are slightly different requirements for obtaining a flight refund or compensation if you were travelling to Berlin.

  • If you were flying from a European nation or the UK, you may be eligible for flight compensation for a delayed or cancelled flight to Berlin.

  • Your eligibility also applies in the case that you took a flight from outside of the EU on a European airline.

You won't be subject to European laws governing flight compensation if a non-EU/UK airline flew you to Berlin and if your flight originated in a non-EU country. The table below provides more details on this.

Extraordinary circumstances disrupted my Berlin flight — can the airline really deny my claim? 

The airline is not responsible for the delay or cancellation of your flight where a third party or a situation of force majeure is at fault. Should these "extraordinary circumstances" occur, airlines are not compelled to compensate the impacted passengers. If your flight from Berlin is cancelled or delayed and any of the following applies, you could not be eligible for flight compensation:

  • 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.

You can relax, as you don't have to investigate the cause of your delayed or canceled flight to Berlin. Our team of experts will handle this for you by carefully comparing internal and external aviation data, ensuring you receive the compensation you're entitled to for your flight to Berlin.

How long can I claim for my delayed or cancelled flight from Berlin?

The European Union Regulation (EU261) on Air Passenger Rights applies to all flights into Berlin. So, 2 years after the flight, you can submit a claim for compensation for a flight to or from Berlin.

You have 6 years to file a claim for flight compensation or a refund from Berlin if you are travelling to or from the United Kingdom.

About Berlin flights 

Berlin used to be home to three smaller airports, Schönefeld, Tegel, and Tempelhof until it was decided to build a new airport in Berlin. On October 31, 2020, Berlin Brandenburg Airport's doors officially opened. It has replaced the already-closed Tegel and Tempelhof Airports as well as Schönefeld Airport, which will continue to be in use as the new airport's terminal 5 until 2025. The airport is officially known as Berlin Brandenburg International Airport, Willy Brandt (BER).

Berlin Brandenburg Airport is a world-class airport located in Schönefeld, a suburb of Berlin in the German state of Brandenburg. EasyJet, Eurowings, and Ryanair use it as a base; it is situated 18 km (11 mi) southeast of the city centre. It primarily offers flights to popular tourist and business destinations in Europe as well as a few intercontinental services.

Germany's capital city, Berlin, is recognized for its extraordinary collection of landmarks, thriving cultural scene, and lifestyle that manages to be both active and laid-back. The city is best recognized for its stark contrasts, in actuality. The past and present coexist as modern and historical monuments stand side by side. Among the 28 well-known European cities, Berlin has been deemed the most environmentally friendly.
