Understanding Air Passenger Rights at Manchester Airport

The UK’s air passenger laws (UK 261) safeguard passengers flying out of UK airports, including Manchester Airport. There’s also a similar EU law called EC 261 that covers flights between Manchester Airport and the EU.

Both laws state that passengers are eligible for compensation when flights are delayed, cancelled, or overbooked. The compensation amounts are fixed by the law and can be as much as £520 or €600 per person. You can also backdate your claim by up to 6 years.

Eligibility for Compensation Due to Manchester Airport Delays

Passengers  can claim up to £520 in compensation if their flights are delayed by 3 hours or more. To determine eligibility, consider the delay in reaching your final destination compared to the scheduled time. It’s also important to note that these laws focus on airline responsibility for delays, and they don’t apply in cases of ‘extraordinary circumstances,’ which are situations beyond the airline’s control, such as bad weather, dangerous conditions or strikes.

Understanding Manchester Airport Flight Cancellation Compensation

Nobody wants to hear the news that their flight has been cancelled- especially at the last minute. Flight cancellations at Manchester Airport can feel chaotic, but our friendly experts at Air Trave Claim are here to help you understand and navigate what you could be entitled to.

 

Know your air passenger rights 

Under UK air passenger rights, the airline must offer an alternative flight or a refund.

For last-minute cancellations (within 14 days of departure), you may also be eligible for up to £520 per person for the inconvenience. Airlines are exempt from compensation if they offer a similar alternative flight or if cancellations result from extraordinary circumstances.
