Flight delay and cancellation with SAS
SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) is mutually owned by Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The airline company, which has history back from the early 1900s, transports annually about 30 million passengers to 119 destinations worldwide. The airline is also one of Denmark's most preferred airline companies for travellers.
If your trip has been purchased through SAS, your chances for financial compensation are quite high if your flight is cancelled, delayed or you are denied to be boarded on flight.
Delayed or cancelled flight with SAS?
As SAS is one of Denmark's most used airline companies, they also have a high flight disruption rate in Denmark.
If you have booked a trip through SAS, your chances for compensation are quite high if your flight is cancelled, delayed for at least 3 hours or if you are denied to be boarded on flight.
According to EU Regulation 261/2004 about air passenger rights, you can claim for compensation if your flight is cancelled, delayed for at least 3 hours or if you are denied to be boarded on flight.
The regulation applies to trips made within EU (including Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, etc.) and with airline companies that belong to these countries. As SAS belongs to this category, you may therefore be entitled to financial compensation.
