If you’ve been flying with China Airlines, it’s possible that your flight was delayed. While the airline does its best to stick to the scheduled arrival time, some of its flights do arrive late. When the delay was caused by “extraordinary circumstances” such as a strike, Air Traffic Control restrictions, or adverse weather conditions, then the airline cannot be held responsible and no compensation is due to their passengers.
But when the delay was the responsibility of China Airlines, then the airline must pay you up to 600€ for your trouble. This includes cases of “technical issues” or “operational difficulties”. The EU Regulation 261/2004, also known as EC261, protects your air passenger rights. And ClaimCompass is here to enforce them for you.
With our Compensation Calculator, you can fill out your flight details and know if you’re eligible and to what amount, in less than 2 minutes. Give us the authorization to represent you in front of China Airlines, sit back, and we’ll get your compensation for you.

China Airlines sometimes has no choice but to cancel their flights. While it’s going to disrupt your travel plan, the EU Regulation 261/2004 once again protects your air passenger rights. In this situation as well, the airline must be responsible: travellers on flights cancelled for extraordinary circumstances are not eligible for compensation. These circumstances include strikes, air traffic control restrictions, adverse weather conditions, security threats, and a few more.
But when the airline was responsible and failed to let you know about the cancellation at least 14 days before the departure date, EU law states that you can get up to 600€ for your trouble - the exact amount depends on the length of your journey.
ClaimCompass can help you get the money the airline owes you. Just fill out your flight details in our Compensation Calculator and we will take care of the whole for you.
Even if it turns out that you are not eligible to compensation, remember that when China Airlines cancels a flight, they must either refund your ticket price or rebook you on the next flight to your destination (if there are seats available).
