  •   Nie wieder Regress ohne Flightcomp!!! Hatten einen um 3,5 Stunden verspäteten Anreise-Flug. Während der Wartezeit haben wir von anderen Mitreisenden viele verschiedene Möglichkeiten aufgezählt bekommen welche Entschädigungen wir von der Airline zu erwarten haben. Die Wahl stand auf 12 Monate auf 400,00 €/Person warten zzgl. Anwaltskosten oder den einfachen und schnelleren Weg über Flightcomp und nach kürzester Zeit 705,00 € auf dem Konto haben. Selbstverständlich haben wir uns für den Weg über Flightcomp entschieden. Die Abwicklung sucht seines gleichen. Von der ersten Kontaktaufnahme bis zum Erhalt der Entschädigung per PayPal sind keine 20ig Minuten vergangen. Der Kontakt per Mail und per WhatzAPP lief reibungslos. Ganz großes Tennis!!!!! So können wir als dreiköpfige Familie jetzt den Entschädigungsbetrag von 705€ noch im Urlaub auf den Kopf hauen und uns ein PREMIUM Leihwagen hier in Side/Türkei gönnen. Danke Flightcomp für den 5er BMW!!!!! Wer euch nicht in Anspruch nimmt bei Flugverspätungen aller Art ist selber Schuld. Kann euch nur Danke sagen. Erstklassiger Service!!!!!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

The compensation amount is linked to the flight’s distance from departure airport to destination.

Important: You can keep the amount received in any case, no matter the outcome of proceedings!


(1) Short-haul (less than 1500 km) => Cashout € 152

(2) Medium-haul (between 1500 km and 3500 km) => Cashout € 235

(3) Long-haul (more than 3500 km) => Cashout € 352

Cashout occurs per person. Your ticket price does not matter; even when you have paid with miles you can use our compensation service.

Airlines pay us a little more money, pursuant to EU Regulation 261/2004. The difference is our service fee. From this we have to transfer a part to the tax office. Further we have to finance courts and lawyers, cost of capital, IT and organizational cost.

(1) Short-haul (less than 1500 km) => Airline compensation € 250

(2) Medium-haul (between 1500 km and 3500 km) => Airline compensation € 400

(3) Long-haul (more than 3500 km) => Airline compensation € 600

You receive instant compensation in cases of delay 3h+, cancellation and overbooking. When we identify so called extraordinary circumstances which could not have been avoided by the air carrier (emergency case, strike, weather) we cannot compensate because the carrier is not obliged to pay in these cases – we will check that for you.

When the actual arrival time differs more than 3 hours from the scheduled time.

If you have been informed of the cancellation of your flight less than 14 days prior to departure, or if the airline has not offered you an alternative flight with a flight time similar to the originally booked flight time, you will be entitled to a compensation payment (whether the flight time was “similar”, we will check for you. In case of flight cancellations, the airline must always offer you one of these alternatives:

  • refund ticket price
  • other transport to the destination airport
  • rebooking to a later date suitable for you

And this regardless of the circumstances and reasons for flight cancellation.

We cover all flights that depart inside the EU, as well as flights, which arrive in the EU provided the operating airline is an EU-based carrier (we’ll check for you). Iceland, Norway and Switzerland are covered as well.
For example we compensate a flight by Emirates from Frankfurt to Bangkok; whereas a flight with an American carrier from New York to Paris is not in our compensation scope.

In Germany, compensation claims can be submitted 3 years (sometimes up to 4 years) after the originally planned departure date. E.g. you had a delayed flight on 1st Jan 2015 – in this case we can compensate you till December 2018.

No, because our service is for free and non-binding, no matter the eventual outcome of proceedings. After compensating you instantly, the case is done for you. Even if we do not receive the compensation from the airline later, you keep the received money – this is our risk.

As soon as you have entered your flight details our calculation tool provides you an indication of the amount payable. When we received all necessary details, we start the assessment immediately and we keep you informed. In a valid case you receive an offer for instant compensation, which you can accept paperless. Within 24 hours you receive your money.

While most of the other companies have a so called claiming/proceedings service we offer instant compensation – without delay, within 24 hours.

Yes you can. Even though you were not a passenger yourself, you can manage instant compensation process for others – just let us know.

The rights of air passengers and the obligations of airlines are stipulated in EU regulation 261/2004. The European Parliament and the European Council have defined cases in which airlines are obliged to pay compensation or provide services to passengers.

Yes, you can do it on your own. But it is a hassle – most of the time airlines do not respond to compensation requests coming from other than lawyers or compensation companies. In case of mandating a lawyer, you have an additional cost risk (lawyers fee, court fee).

As a rule, the traveler himself is entitled to receive compensation. It is irrelevant who has paid for the ticket (employer etc.) or whether it was booked by bonus miles or similar. However, clauses in the employment contract may stipulate that compensation for business flights must be paid to the employer.

In principle, the EU flight compensation regulation 261/2004 does not cover the advancement of a flight. However, a “more than minor advancement” will be treated as a flight cancellation. There is no clear time limit for this. Just submit your case to us and we’ll check it.
