There will be no compensation for a delay or cancellation caused by an extraordinary circumstance under which such delay or cancellation becomes uncontrollable. Examples of such situations include bad weather or security concerns such as fear of a terror attack. In such cases, passengers will not be given any compensation.
Nevertheless, if there is a delay of more than 4 hours for a flight of 3500 km or more; delay of 3 hours or more in an intra-community flight of 1500 km or more; and delay of 3 hours in case of flight under 1500 km, the passenger is entitled to claim compensation under EU norms as set by the Regulation.

This considers the distance you traveled both within Europe and outside Europe and the time for flight delay, which should be more than 3 hours.
- If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you can claim up to 250€
- And over 1,500 km, you can claim up to 400€
