Compensation for a Delayed Flight by Air France
Even though Air France tries to keep to their schedule, flights may still arrive late. Fortunately, as a passenger, you are protected by air passenger rights when Air France flights are delayed.
Since Air France is based in the EU, nearly all of its flights are protected by EC 261, one of the most comprehensive laws globally protecting air passenger rights.
EC Regulation 261 gives passengers the right to claim compensation for delayed, cancelled, or overbooked flights that are not their fault.
There are some extraordinary circumstances such as bad weather or airport problems that may exempt airlines from paying compensation. However, if the delay is caused by technical issues or a strike by airline staff, you will likely be eligible for compensation under Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004.
Additionally, you generally have up to 3 years to make a claim for compensation for a delayed Air France flight. Just enter your flight information, and our user-friendly flight delay compensation calculator will determine if you qualify for monetary compensation, and our team of professionals will be available to help you obtain it.

Flight Cancellation Compensation Air France
In the event of a Air France flight cancellation, European laws on air passenger rights are clear: Air France must offer you alternative transportation to get to your destination or, if you prefer, a refund.
Furthermore, if you received a notice regarding cancellation less than 14 days before departure, you may also be eligible to claim compensation of up to US$700 per person.
When Air France cancels flights, it will usually attempt to rebook passengers on another flight at no extra cost. If this does not work for you, you may request other changes or choose to no longer take the trip.
If Air France books you a new flight that arrives at a similar time to your original flight, it is not required to pay compensation. This is because your plans will have minimal disruption. However, in many cases, passengers whose flights are cancelled at the last minute have the right to file a claim for compensation against Air France.
These rights do not apply if the flight cancellation was caused by an event beyond Air France's control, such as severe weather conditions or an accident at the airport. Such events are referred to as exceptional circumstances.
