What are your rights when your flight is cancelled in Europe?I hope your travels have been smooth this holiday season, but we all know that delays and cancellations are risks that come with any flight. As such, it’s important to know your rights when your flight is cancelled or delayed, and what you may be owed in compensation. The Independent recently published a great guide to passenger rights in Europe that “aims to help you understand when you are entitled to care and/or compensation, and when you just have to put a dismal aviation episode down to experience.”

Europe’s established “regulations apply to all flights from a European airport, and on EU airlines anywhere in the world.” See the 14-part Q&A here to understand what you may be owed if you find flight trouble in Europe, how long your airline has to deliver it to you, and much more.
