Passenger rights in cases of business trips
Did you know that you can apply for compensation for business trip flights also? Compensation follows the passenger and not the person who paid for the ticket. If your flight is delayed on a business trip, then it is you who has to claim for compensation as a passenger.
The business trips have the same conditions as all other ones. Therefore, you may be entitled to compensation either if your flight is delayed for more than 3 hours on arrival, or if you are rejected to be boarded or if your flight is cancelled while you have not been notified about it 14 days before the travel date.
Rights for compensation
If you arrive to your final destination with more than 3 hours of delay, you may be entitled to compensation. The amount to be claimed depends on whether it is a domestic or international flight and the distance between the starting and final destinations.
- You are entitled to compensation of 100 Euro for the domestic flights.
- You are entitled to compensation of 250 Euro for the international flights under 1,500 km.
- You are entitled to compensation of 400 Euro for the international flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km.
- You are entitled to compensation of 600 Euro for the international flights that are longer than 3,500 km.
Compensation can be received if the airline company causes the reason for the flight delay, i.e. if the delay happened not due to storms, terror or work strikes. Please note that there are other rules applied outside of EU (including Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and etc.).
