Where can I find out about my Air Passenger Rights

 

What righBackts do you have if your flight has been cancelled or your luggage has been lost or damaged, where do you stand? 

As a passenger you do have rights if your flight is delayed or cancelled.  Regulation EU 261/2004 describes what airlines must provide their passengers in the event that a flight is delayed or cancelled.  

You do need to be aware that those rights will vary depending on your circumstances and whether you are travelling with an EU carrier or a non-EU carrier.

It is always wise to be aware of your rights in advance in case there is an issue whilst travelling.  Airlines are obliged to make details of your rights available to you.  You may find that they are in the airlines terms and conditions or on a separate sheet that this handed to you when you check in.

Full information on Your Passenger Rights can be found on the following links:
