OTS Successful delayed flight compensation claim against European airline
Our client, RS, planned a flight with a European airline to Armenia by flying from London to Vienna, and then from Vienna to Zvartnots, Armenia, of which her return route would be the opposite. Upon returning home, our client’s flight to Vienna was delayed at Zvartnots airport and because of the time lost our client missed her connecting flight from Vienna International airport to London. Our client’s flight was rebooked onto another flight back to London which was over three hour later. Our client then approached OTS Solicitors and instructed the firm to make a claim for compensation from the airline responsible for the delay on her behalf.
We argued that Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 gives the sufferers of delayed flights the right to compensation as the rescheduled flight was delayed by over three hours and that the distance between the two designations accumulates over 1,500 kilometres. The airline replied to OTS Solicitors and granted our client the required amount in compensation under Regulation (EC) No 261/2004.
This case was a success due to the application carried out by OTS Lawyers, Oshin Shahiean.
