    Flight check / Flight Information
    Route change.
    If the passengers opts for route change, the airline must provide him further support. It may include meals and refreshments, telephone communications, accommodation and transportation from the airport.

  • The rules of obtaining a compensation apply to connection flights exactly the same way. The only difference might be intermediary points outside EU or operation by several EU, which can affect the applicability of 261/2004. The thing you should consider is your departure and arrival points in your itinerary.
    If one or more flights were delayed or cancelled, the total delay to our final destination point determines your right for compensation.
    All connection flights must be booked under a single booking code. If you book several flights under different booking codes, each will be regarded as a separate flight with own starting and final points.
You can estimate your compensation via our calculator or with the help of the table below, except for the flights within Turkey.
