How much compensation can I get for a delayed or cancelled Mexico flight?

Since Mexico is not in Europe, you can only be eligible for Mexico delayed or cancelled flight compensation if your flight originated in Europe and/or landed at a European airport. Flight compensation is only available if your flight was delayed by more than 3 hours upon arrival or if the cancellation of your Mexico flight was announced fewer than 14 days before departure. It should be noted that the airline is additionally required to be responsible for the cause of the flight disruption.

Thus, if your flight to Mexico was delayed by three hours or more, or cancelled less than 14 days before departure, you may be entitled to flight compensation. The amount of flight compensation is calculated per passenger and is determined by the distance of your flight.

Distance of your flightCompensation
Flights shorter than 1,500 kmGet £220 per passenger
Flight between 1,500 and 3,500 kmGet £350 per passenger
Flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EUGet £350 per passenger
Flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU
Get £520 per passenger

flight compensation amount

It's critical to remember that if your flight is delayed or cancelled, the airline has a duty to provide you with additional assistance. This includes the cost of eating and drinking, communications, travelling, and, if necessary, spending the night at a hotel. Your vouchers can be redeemed at the airline's service desk in the airport. If the airline does not supply you with vouchers, you can purchase what you require and save the receipts; in that case, they must issue you a refund.

Flight compensation for a delayed flight from/to Mexico — check if you're eligible now!

If your Mexico flight was delayed, you could be entitled to flight compensation under the EU regulations. Be careful, as Mexico is not part of Europe, you can only claim flight compensation for flights leaving from a European airport and/or operated by a European airline. If your flight from Europe to Mexico from Europe was delayed, regardless of which airline you were flying with, you may be entitled to up to £520 in flight compensation per passenger.

Moreover, Mexico delayed flight compensation depends on:

  • The length of the delay: your Mexico flight arrived more than 3 hours later than expected

  • The responsibility of the airline: the airline was responsible for the delay. (The airline is not required to compensate passengers for delays caused by "Extraordinary Circumstances," more information is below on this page.)

The compensation amount is dependent on the flight distance: the longer your flight, the more compensation you receive.

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

Airlines can offer travel vouchers instead of cash refunds when a flight is delayed. Here's why we strongly advise against taking them:

  1. With the travel voucher, you will have to make a new booking with the same airline. Moreover, the airline can impose a timeframe by which you must redeem the voucher.

  2. If the airline goes bankrupt, you may have difficulty getting your money back.

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

Yes, under certain circumstances. Because Mexico is not a member of the European Union, European regulations (EU261) only apply to flights departing from the EU and/or operated by European airlines.

Additionally, British post-Brexit air passenger rights regulations apply to flights from the UK and those handled by British airlines.

You cannot claim flight compensation if you flew from Mexico on a non-EU airline, according to European regulations. The table below contains additional information.

Type of flightExampleCompensation
Flying with a British carrierTokyo to London with British AirwaysYes
Flying with a EU carrierAmsterdam to London with KLMYes
Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier from the UKLondon to Tokyo with Japan AirlinesYes

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

The airline might refuse to compensate you even if your flight was cancelled or delayed for more than three hours. Extraordinary circumstances are used to deny flight compensation to passengers when a third party or unforeseen event, rather than the airline, is to blame for the delay or cancellation.

Here are a few 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.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to check the reason behind your Mexico delayed or cancelled flight! Our experts will do it for you by comparing internal and external aviation data to make sure that you get your Mexico flight compensation
