Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

China Eastern Airlines Flight Delays Compensation 

When your international flight with China Eastern Airlines is delayed, there is a chance that you’re eligible for a compensation. But because China Eastern Airlines is not a European airline, this applies only to their flights departing from Europe, not to flights leaving from out of Europe and arriving in Europe.

Why can you hope for a compensation in these cases? Because the EU Regulation 261/2004 (EC261 in short) protects your passenger rights. The airline (probably) hasn’t told you about those - few airlines do, especially non-EU airlines.

So next time your flight from Europe with China Eastern Airlines is delayed, take the time to verify whether you’re eligible: you may get up to 600€ from the airline. Just fill out our calculator and you will know in less than 3 minutes what you can hope for!

      Keep in mind that the EU law is slightly more complicated than with delays. The exact amount varies according to more factors, including the length of the delay for example. Also, your eligibility depends on when (or if) the airline warned you about the cancellation.
