Ryanair Flight Cancellations - What To Do


If you’ve read the news or have a flight booked with Ryanair in the next 6 weeks then you surely know by now that there is a problem with cancellations between now and 28 Oct. Of course, there is a chance this could just be the start and the problem could extend beyond this date.

Below is some advice from us which also references the latest BBC article on the matter (at time of publishing).



- You should have already received an email from Ryanair if your flight has been affected.


- 200+ cancelled flights are either in/out of London Stansted with some in Edinburgh, Manchester and Birmingham.


- Rome, Milan, Brussels and Barcelona airports will also see flights in and out cancelled.


- Ryanair state they will honour their obligations to compensate passengers under EU regulations but will not book passengers onto flights with rivals.


EU compensation rules for cancelled flights are:

  • Passengers are entitled to assistance and compensation, if the disruption was within an airline's control.

  • Airlines have to offer full refunds, paid within seven days, or re-bookings for a flight cancelled at short notice.

  • In addition, passengers can also claim compensation.

  • Cancellation amounts are: 250 euros (£218) for short-haul, 440 euros (£384) for medium-haul and 600 euros (£523) for long-haul.

  • Passengers who reach their destination more than three hours late can be compensated from 200 to 600 euros, depending on the length of flights and delay.



If you would like to process a compensation claim in addition to any refunds you may be due from the airline, use our approved partner HERE
