Every single year, there are millions of pounds that go unclaimed as many airline passengers do not realise they can receive delayed flight compensation if their journey was interrupted by three or more hours, or if it is cancelled altogether.
Many are unaware of EU Law protecting consumers when flying with a European airline or when departing from a destination within the EU. These laws come into effect if a flight is delayed by as little as 2 hours, with the compensation you are due varying depending on the length of the flight delay.
Capital Lawyers understand the disruption a delayed flight can cause and the potential a flight cancellation has to completely ruin a hard earned break or critical business trip. That’s why our expert Peterborough solicitors are ready to deal with all your flight delay compensation claims and flight cancellation compensation claims.
Flight compensation can vary massively depending on the length of your delay.
