The amount of compensation is calculated according to the distance of your flight:

For flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km, the compensation is £350.
For flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU, the compensation is also £350.
For flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU, the compensation is £520 —but if your flight was delayed by fewer than 4 hours, the total amount might be reduced by 50%.
When flying from Europe or the UK with WestJet, chances are high that your flight distance is over 3,500km. Therefore, when a WestJet flight gets delayed or cancelled, passengers claiming with Flight-Delayed.co.uk usually get flight compensation of £520.
Yes. However, since WestJet is a Canadian airline, Canadian laws will apply instead of European ones. Learn more about the Canadian regulations on the official website of the Canadian Transportation Agency.
If your WestJet flight was delayed or cancelled, WestJet needs to be the party at fault for you to be able to claim flight compensation. If the airline is not, extraordinary circumstances would apply and you might not be able to get flight compensation.
Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are:
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.
The definition of extraordinary circumstances is open to debate. Airlines may thus make the allegation that extraordinary circumstances occurred even if they did not. They do this to avoid having to pay compensation. However, you can always contest the airline's claims!
If you were flying from the UK, you can claim flight compensation for up to 6 years after your disrupted flight.
Local rules apply if your itinerary does not include the United Kingdom. For instance, if you departed from France, you will have 5 years to claim; if you departed from the Netherlands, it is 3 years.
