Flight delay and cancellation with Norwegian airlines
Norwegian Air Shuttle is a Norwegian low cost airline, founded in 2002 with the vision of "affordable fares to all". The airline company, one of Denmark's most preferred ones, has 400 routes to 130 destinations worldwide.
When your trip is purchased from Norwegian, and your flight is cancelled or delayed, you have very good opportunities to get financial compensation with value of up to 600 € per person.
Is your Norwegian flight delayed or cancelled?
Every year many Danish passengers travel with Norwegian airlines. In fact, the airline company is among the most used airlines in Denmark along with SAS. Therefore, as per the statistics the airline company has a quite high delay and cancellation rate.
You may be entitled to a compensation valued up to 600 € per person. The condition for eligibility to the compensation is that your flight must be delayed for at least 3 hours or cancelled. If you are denied to be boarded to a Norwegian flight, you may also be entitled to compensation.
According to EU law (regulation 261/2004) you can claim for compensation if your flight is cancelled, delayed for at least 3 hours or if you are denied to be boarded to your Norwegian flight.
The only condition is that the flight must be realised within EU (including Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, etc.) and with airline companies that belong to these countries.
As Norwegian is a Norwegian airline company, you may therefore be entitled to financial compensation if your flight is cancelled or delayed for more than 3 hours.
