Air Passenger Compensation and Beyond
Millions of air passengers travel each year, but a large number do not realize that there are air passenger rights to protect them while in transit.
Air passenger rights involve specific laws that support travellers and advocate for protection and compensation when people face flight disruptions. The problem is that many people are not aware that the law is on their side or even that passenger rights exist. In fact, 85% of EU air passengers do not know their rights and 92% of US air passengers.
Air Passenger Rights and Regulations You Should Know
While it’s true that individual countries abide by their own laws, there are some key features of regional or international laws that serve as powerful tools to air passengers. These include, but are not limited to, EU legislation EC 261, various US laws, Brazil’s ANAC 400, and the Montreal Convention.
Certain regulations have a wider reach or prove more advantageous than others. However, it’s best to remember that disrupted flight circumstances can differ significantly, and it’s helpful to know which strengths you can rely on for your journey.
If your flight was delayed, cancelled or overbooked within the last 3 years, you could be eligible for up to $700 in compensation. Check the compensation link below for eligibility.
