Air Transat complaint

In the event of delay or cancellation of your flight, European law imposes compensation to the passengers taking off from the European Union or having it as a destination.

However, since Air Transat is a Canadian airline, European regulations only apply when the flight is departing from the EU. 

Time saving

By using a specialized company instead of contacting the airline yourself, you save a lot of time.

What compensation with Air Transat?

Depending on the size of the delay and the distance from the flight, Air Transat must guarantee passengers, free of charge: a refreshment, a meal, a hotel night, transportation to another airport or a delay of more than 5 hours and if the passenger renounces the trip, the reimbursement of his ticket.

This obligation of compensation applies for any delay of more than 2 hours for a distance up to 1500 km; more than 3 hours for flights within the EU over 1500 km and up to 3500 km for non-EU flights; more than 4 hours for flights over 3500 km.

In case of cancellation of flight or denied boarding, Air Transat must: either place the traveler on another flight, or refund his ticket.

Warning ! If the cancellation is not due to overbooking but to a case of force majeure (such as a weather event for example), the airline is not required to compensate the traveler.
