The cancellation of a flight can be extremely stressful, especially if it is an international flight such as that of Air France. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to claim compensation and assert your rights as a passenger.
Firstly, it is important to know that the European regulation EC 261/2004 sets out the rights of passengers in the event of flight cancellations. If your Air France flight is cancelled with at least 14 days notice, you are not entitled to any compensation. If the cancellation occurs with less than 14 days' notice, you are entitled to compensation of up to €600. In addition, the airline is obliged to provide you with assistance, such as meals and drinks, free phone calls or messages, and accommodation in case of need.
To claim your compensation, it is important to collect all documentation related to your flight, such as the booking confirmation and proof of cancellation. It is also useful to note down all the details of the situation, such as the date and time your flight was cancelled and the names of the people you spoke to at the airport.
Once you have collected all the necessary documentation, you can submit your claim directly to Air France. However, this process can be complex and time-consuming. Alternatively, you can use a company such as Trouble Flight that will guide you through the claim process and handle the submission of your claim to the airline.
