    • Regardless of what caused the flight delay, airlines must provide passengers with special assistance, or the "right to care," as mandated by law. Vouchers are offered for food and drink requirements, communication needs, and, if necessary, travel and lodging. Purchase what you require even if the airline's service counter at the airport declines to offer you the vouchers because they are legally required to reimburse your costs (as long as they are reasonable).

If your flight was cancelled or delayed because of an "extraordinary circumstance," you will not be qualified to request flight compensation. To reimburse passengers, the airline must be held liable for the flight disruption.

Extraordinary circumstances — can Flydubai deny me compensation?

Even if your Flydubai flight was delayed 3 hours or more or cancelled at the last minute, in certain circumstances, Flydubai can rightfully decline to pay flight compensation.

In cases when the disruption was caused by a third party or a force majeure, the airline is not obligated to pay claim compensation to passengers and therefore, they may refuse your claim. These situations, called extraordinary circumstances, vary greatly.

Here you can find a list of some of the most common extraordinary circumstances.

  • Bad weather conditions, such as thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.

  • A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry (for example, a strike of air traffic control workers at a specific airport).

    However, a strike of the airline's crew is not considered an extraordinary circumstance!

  • Political circumstances, such as a terrorist attack or general security risk due to political unrest.

  • Natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions and hurricanes.

  • A collision between the aircraft and birds or other foreign objects.

  • An ill or unruly passenger.

  • Flight delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.

Keep in mind — It’s often the case that airlines claim that extraordinary circumstances happened when they did not, in order to avoid paying passengers their owed compensation.

Has the airline denied your claim on the grounds that extraordinary circumstances occurred? If you have reason to believe that this was not the case, you can use our online Claim Calculator to determine in just 5 minutes if you qualify for Flydubai flight compensation.
