“My flight was delayed 6 years ago. Back then, I had no idea that I could get compensated for that. Can I still get a compensation for that flight delay?”
This is what many passengers who have only recently been made aware of their air passenger rights wonder.
Well, yes, you can probably still claim your canceled or delayed flight compensation – but there is a time limit. How far back you can claim varies from one country to the next.
If your flight was canceled or delayed by at least 3 hours, you can get up to 600€ in compensation from the airline. Check if you’re eligible by filling out your flight information here – it takes only 3 minutes!
How Far Back Can I Claim Compensation In Each Country?
So you can claim for flight disruptions which happened years ago. But how many years exactly?
The time-limit depends on the legislation of the country you bring the claim to.
For instance, in France, you can claim up to 5 years after the flight – but only 3 years in Germany and 3 in Italy. But you can still claim up to 6 years after the flight disruption in the United Kingdom.
However, keep in mind that to this day, no passengers on a flight disrupted over 6 years before getting compensated. Even though it is possible, in theory.
