      Less than 24% of Scandinavian Airlines’ flights arrive late (at least 15 minutes after the scheduled time of arrival) - a performance slightly better than the industry average. The average delay of their delayed flights is less than 40 minutes, a good performance for the industry. The Scandinavian airline’s first quarter was their worst and was followed by a good on-time performance between April and June. Unfortunately, this didn’t last, and the third quarter registered a higher proportion of delayed flights, although still lower than during the first quarter. The airline was at its most punctual during the last quarter of the year. The average delay followed the exact same trend. Overall, Scandinavian Airlines ranks among airlines slightly above average when it comes to on-flight performance, with a rating of 5.7.

      Scandinavian Airlines Flight Cancellation Compensation 

      What could be worse than a delay for air travellers? A flight cancellation. Just like any other airline, Scandinavian Airlines sometimes has no other choice but to cancel a flight. They will do everything they can to rebook you on another flight at no extra cost. Know that if the arrangement doesn’t suit your travel plans, you can also ask the refund of your cancelled flight’s ticket.

      Don’t forget that as long as there are seats available on another flight to your destination, Scandinavian Airlines is obligated to rebook you on that flight. You don’t have to spend anything - even if the seat is in a higher class. 

      The EU Regulation 261/2004 also protects your passenger rights when your flight is cancelled. If the airline hasn’t warned you at least 14 days in advance, then you could be entitled to up to 600€. We can assist you in claiming the compensation you deserve. Just fill out the flight details of your cancelled flight in our Compensation Calculator and we’ll take it from there!
