Swiss International Air Lines Cancelled and Delayed Flight Compensation

Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

Swiss International Air Lines Delayed Flight Compensation 

Airlines operate hundreds of flights every month - even thousands or tens of thousands for the largest ones. It’s no surprise that a portion of these flights is delayed. Swiss International Air Lines is no exception: some of the airline’s flights arrive later than planned at their destination.

 

When Swiss International Air Lines could have avoided the delay but failed to do so, it’s only fair that passengers get compensated. That’s what the European law states. EC261 protects your passenger rights and requires airlines to pay up to 600€ per passenger in compensation for flight delays

 

ClaimCompass is here to make sure that airlines like Swiss International Air Lines respect the law and to help air passengers have their rights enforced. Once you’ve given us permission to handle your claim, we contact the airline, take care of the whole for you, and send you your compensation. You don’t have to lift a finger!

 

Check if you're eligible with our Compensation Calculator. In less than 3 minutes, you will also know how much you're entitled to. The time limit to submit a flight compensation claim varies from one country to another, so you might still be eligible for a flight that was delayed a few years ago.

      Swiss International Air Lines Flight Cancellation Compensation 

      Swiss International Air Lines sometimes has no choice but to cancel their flights. While it’s going to disrupt your travel plan, the EU Regulation 261/2004 once again protects your air passenger rights. In this situation as well, the airline must be responsible: travellers on flights cancelled for extraordinary circumstances are not eligible to compensation. These circumstances include strikes, air traffic control restrictions, adverse weather conditions, security threats, and a few more.

       

      But when the airline was responsible and failed to let you know about the cancellation at least 14 days before the departure date, EU law states that you can get up to 600€ for your trouble - the exact amount depends on the length of your journey and how late the flight was exactly (if you have accepted the rerouting). 

       

      Even if it turns out that you are not eligible to compensation, remember that when Swiss International Air Lines cancels a flight, they must either refund your ticket price or rebook you on the next flight to your destination (if there are seats available).

       

      ClaimCompass can help you get the money the airline owes you. Just fill out your flight details in our Compensation Calculator and we will take care of the whole process for you.
