Alitalia Cancelled and Delayed Flight Compensation

Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

Alitalia Flight Delay Compensation 

Alitalia is subject to the EU Regulation 261/2004 and as such, the Italian airline owes you a compensation for flight delay when their flights arrive at least 3 hours later than planned at destination. 

 

Airlines do their best to respect their initial schedule - but that doesn’t prevent them from arriving late from time to time. While some delays are minors, those above 3 hours are particularly annoying for their passengers. ClaimCompass seeks to turn that bad experience into a better one by helping travellers who suffered from such a delay get up to 600€ in compensation for their trouble.

 

The EU law acts as the reference for the protection of air passenger rights. It states that in cases of long flight delays, airlines must pay compensation to their passengers. However, if the delay was caused by extraordinary circumstances, out of Alitalia’s control, then the airline doesn’t have to pay. 

 

The amount of your compensation varies according to the distance of your journey, from 250€ to 600€. You can use our Compensation Calculator for Delayed Flights to determine how much you are entitled to. All we need is your flight number, itinerary, and a few more info.

      Alitalia Flight Cancellation Compensation 

      Delays are only one of the flight disruptions that travellers can be confronted to. Alitalia sometimes has no other choice than to cancel flights. Obviously, they don’t do it to annoy their passengers, and when it happens, they try to rebook them on another flight. It doesn’t change the fact that passengers’ plans take a serious hit when this happens.

       

      On the brighter side, if the airline was responsible for the cancellation and failed to send you a 14-day notice, then you are likely to be eligible to a compensation under the EU Regulation 261/2004. The EU law protects your rights when Alitalia is responsible for the cancellation and states that you may be entitled to a compensation. 

       

      There are a few additional rules that make the calculation of your compensation slightly more complicated than in cases of delayed flights. But the experts at ClaimCompass always make sure that you get the maximum amount that you are entitled to. Submit your claim in less than 3 minute, sit back, and wait till we secure your money for you.

      Alitalia and Compensation Claim Processing

      Unfortunately, the Italian airline’s good flight performance isn’t coupled with a good processing of passenger claims. Alitalia isn’t part of the most cooperative airlines when it comes to processing their passengers’ claims for delayed or cancelled flight, as the data below suggests.
