What if strikes had affected my flight?

Certain types of strikes and political unrest qualify as extraordinary circumstances which may exemp the airline from its obligation to pay compensation. Air traffic control (ATC) strikes and political unrest giving rise safety concerns count as such circumstances, but airline crew strikes for example, do not. FlightClaimEU will always investigate the circumstances surrounding the disruption carefully using its range of information sources. We have an intuitive flight rights page to guide you through the eligibility criteria.
