Scandinavian Airlines Cancelled and Delayed Flight Compensation

Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

Scandinavian Airlines Flight Delays Compensation 

When your flight with Scandinavian is delayed, you can claim a flight delay compensation. Air passengers can get up to 600€ for their late flight with SAS: EC 261 protects their right when the air carrier doesn't manage to get them to their destination on-time. 

 

Obviously, airlines do everything they can to get you to your destination on time. Unfortunately, Scandinavian Airlines’ flights also arrive later than the scheduled time of arrival. Flight delays happen, right? Thankfully, the EU Regulation 261/2004 protects air passenger rights in these situations. You can read more about that in our complete guide to flight delay compensations

 

However, not all airlines are the same. If you're bound to have a delayed flight, you want it to be when you're flying SAS. As you will see below, Scandinavian Airlines are among the best air carriers when it comes to processing compensation claims. In fact, SAS is one of the best airlines in the world, according to our airline ratings 2019

      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 

      Flight cancellations are arguably worse than delays. But there's a silver lining here too: passengers can get up to 600€ as cancelled flight compensation. You can claim money from the airline when your reach your destination at least 3 hours late (if you've been rebooked on another flight) or if you don't reach destination at all. 

       

      Just like any other airline, Scandinavian Airlines sometimes has no other choice but to cancel a flight. Because they're one of the best airlines in the world, they will do everything they can to rebook you on another flight at no extra cost. Keep in mind 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 must rebook you on that flight, free of charge - 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 Cancelled Flight Compensation Calculator and we’ll take it from there!
