Flybe Cancelled and Delayed Flight Compensation

Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

Flybe Flight Delay Compensation 

Flight delays bother Flybe just as much as you. They also have a schedule to stick to, after all. However, not all delays are the same - and when the airline is responsible, it’s only fair that passengers get compensated for their trouble.


That’s what the EU Regulation 261/2004 is all about. You can get up to 600€ in compensation for your delayed flight with Flybe, depending on the length of your journey. To be eligible, you must have reached your destination at least 3 hours after the originally scheduled time of arrival, and the airline must be responsible for the delay.


Flybe is very representative of the industry average when it comes to punctuality, but they atone for it by doing a good job of processing passenger claims, as you can see below. This makes them one of the best airlines in the world


The easiest and fastest way to check your eligibility is to fill out your flight details in our Delayed Flight Compensation Calculator. In less than 2 minutes, you will know whether you are entitled to money from the airline or not. At ClaimCompass, we have already helped tons of passengers get their compensation from Flybe. All you have to do is let us do the work and we’ll get your money for you.

      Flybe Flight Cancellation Compensation 

      Some of Flybe’s flights are also cancelled, leaving passengers into even more trouble than they would with a mere delay. The airline isn’t always responsible, of course - in some cases, the decision is out of their control. This happens when air traffic control (ATC) has to change the flight schedules, or in cases of adverse weather conditions. These are two examples of extraordinary circumstances. But when Flybe 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 Flybe failed to do so and was responsible for the flight cancellation, you may be entitled to compensation under EC261


      Don’t forget that if the airline cancels your flight, they also have to offer you a choice between a rebooking on an alternate flight to your destination as soon as possible (provided that seats are available) or the refund of your ticket. That’s independent of your right to compensation.

      Flybe and Compensation Claim Processing

      Many air passengers have already entrusted their compensation claim against Flybe to ClaimCompass. As you can see from the data below, the airline is rather cooperative when it comes to processing passenger claims.

      Rating criteria
      Days / Rating
      Average number of days for the airline to reply once the claim is submitted
      Average number of days to solve the claim
      Average number of days to pay the compensation after the case was sent to court

      While Flybe provide their initial statement after the claim submission 20 days - which is only slightly better than the industry average - they are quick to pay the compensation when their passengers are entitled to it. The airline’s claim processing performance can, therefore, be regarded as good. Our experts are used to dealing with Flybe and work hard to secure your compensation in as little time as possible.
