Cathay Pacific Cancelled and Delayed Flight Compensation

Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

Cathay Pacific Flight Delays Compensation 

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 known as EC261 is 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 circumstances out of Cathay Pacific’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 to determine how much you are entitled to in less than 2 minutes. All we need is your flight number, itinerary, and a few more info.

      Cathay Pacific Flight Cancellation Compensation 

      Some of Cathay Pacific’s flights are also cancelled, leaving passengers into even more trouble. The airline isn’t always responsible, of course - in some cases, the decision is out of their control. But when Cathay Pacific is responsible, passengers are once again entitled to compensation.

      In the event of the cancellation of one of their flight, the airline is required to let the passengers know at least 14 days prior to departure. If Cathay Pacific failed to do so and was responsible for the cancellation, you may be entitled to compensation under EC261.
