CAR Update on EU240 Compensation with Ryanair

CAR Update on EU240 Compensation with Ryanair

Ryanair has said all passengers that had their flights cancelled up to 28th October were notified on or before Monday 18th September and that any cancellation after 2nd October will not qualify for compensation. Any cancellations between 10th September and 2nd October included that were cancelled due to Ryanair’s scheduling issue will be entitled to compensation.

Ryanair has assessed all the impacted flights within the 14 days and has identified all passengers who qualify for compensation. Ryanair has said that on 10th September and 12th September there were some cancellations due to thunderstorms in Italy and the French ATC strike. Ryanair has stated these passengers will not be entitled to compensation as these issues were outside of Ryanair’s control. All other flights within the 14 days are entitled to full compensation.
