Flight Canceled Due to Strike: How to Get Compensation

When planning a trip, nothing can be more frustrating than a flight canceled due to strike. If you have recently had a flight canceled due to a strike, it is important to know that you have rights and can obtain compensation for the inconvenience you have suffered.

What Are Your Rights?

Based on the European Regulation (EC) n. 261/2004, if your flight was canceled and you were informed less than 14 days before the departure date, you are entitled to financial compensation. Compensation amounts vary depending on the distance of the flight and the delay accumulated until the final destination:

  • 250 EUR for flights up to 1,500 km

  • 400 EUR for intra-community flights over 1,500 km and for all other flights between 1,500 km and 3,500 km

  • 600 EUR for flights over 3,500 km

In addition to financial compensation, you are entitled to a full refund of your ticket or an alternative flight to your final destination.

How Can You Get Compensation?

Getting compensation may seem complicated, but by following a few simple steps, you can ensure you receive what you deserve.

1. Collect the Necessary Documents

Make sure you have the following documents at hand:

  • Airline Tickets

  • Booking Confirmation

  • Any communication from the airline regarding flight cancellation

  • Extra expenses caused by cancellation (accommodation, meals, transport)

2. Contact the Airline

Send a formal request to the airline, specifying the details of the canceled flight and requesting compensation according to European rules. Include all relevant documents and clearly explain the impact of the cancellation on your trip.

Frequently Asked Questions about Flights Canceled due to Strike

What happens if the airline offers an alternative flight?

What Other Rights Do You Have Besides Financial Compensation?

In addition to financial compensation, you are entitled to:

  • Full refund of the ticket if you do not wish to accept the alternative flight offered

  • Accommodation and meals if the cancellation of the flight forces you to spend an additional night at the airport or in a transit location
