Despite the indisputable fact that Britain is not any longer a part of the European Union, this regulation still applies to all UK or EU regulated flights departing from a UK or EU airport, whatever the airline you might be travelling on.
Martin Lewis, founding father of the MoneySavingExpert.com explained that under these rules, EU airports also include those in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
Nevertheless, your rights under this regulation don’t apply in the event you weren’t on a UK or EU regulated flight, meaning you won’t receive a refund or compensation through this avenue.
In line with Flight Right, passengers who experience a flight cancellation are entitled to their a reimbursement in the shape of:
- A ticket refund
- A alternative flight
- Compensation from the airline (if the airline informed you 14 days or less before the flight was scheduled to depart)
