Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

KLM Cityhopper Flight Delays Compensation 

When your international flight with KLM Cityhopper is delayed, there is a chance that you’re eligible for a compensation. Because KLM Cityhopper is a European airline, this applies to their flights departing from Europe, but also to flights leaving from out of Europe and arriving in Europe.

Why can you hope for a compensation in these cases? The EU Regulation 261/2004 (EC261 in short) protects your passenger rights and states that the airline owes you between 250 and 600€ when their flight is delayed by at least 3 hours. The airline (probably) hasn’t told you about those - few airlines do.

So next time your flight from Europe with KLM Cityhopper 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.
