Understanding Your Rights at Heathrow Airport

In the UK, air passenger regulations (UK 261) protect travellers from UK airports, including Heathrow. If you’re flying between Heathrow and EU member states, European Union regulation EC 261 also applies. These regulations ensure compensation for flight delays, cancellations, or overbooking, with amounts of up to £520 or €600 per passenger. You can even claim compensation for flights within the past 6 years.

Eligibility for Compensation Due to Delays

You can claim up to £520 for delays of 3 hours or more. Your eligibility depends on the delay relative to the scheduled arrival time. These regulations don’t apply to ‘extraordinary circumstances’ beyond the airline’s control, like bad weather or labour strikes.

Understanding Flight Cancellation Compensation

When your flight gets cancelled, UK air passenger rights require the airline to provide an alternative flight or a refund. For last-minute cancellations (within 14 days of departure), you might be eligible for up to £520 per passenger due to the inconvenience. Airlines are exempt from paying compensation in ‘extraordinary circumstances.’
