Over the last few weeks, more than 40,000 passengers have been hit by the mass cancellations caused by the British Airways IT Glitch and with further talks of airline strikes and delays, there seems to be more pain for passengers ahead.
More than 26.5 million people pass through Manchester Airport every year, making it the third busiest airport in the UK with passenger traffic. With the number of passengers affected by the strikes and IT issues rising, we’ve joined forces with Manchester-born Flight Patrol as they believe they have a 99% success rate for claiming compensation with a No Win, No Fee basis.
Flight Patrol was established in Manchester in May 2019 and have been gradually developing as a business, helping passengers claim up to 600 euros on severely delayed flights or cancellations. And with an in-house legal team, they are making it much simpler to process passenger claims, without the middleman. The team believes there is still a lot of educating to be done on passenger rights, and Flight Patrol will equip customers with the facts before making their claim.
Blal Choudhry, CEO says “At Flight Patrol, it’s our continuing mission to educate airline passengers on their travel rights – we aim to look after you when you fly. Every day we tackle the airlines to get you paid the correct flight compensation you deserve. Making it a stress-free and simple experience”.
So how do customers qualify for a claim? Flight Patrol states the four facts on how to qualify;
- Departing from the EU, or arriving into the EU on an EU airline
- More than 3 hours late on arrival
- The flight was within the last 6 years
- Delay was not caused by extraordinary circumstances
Not only do Flight Patrol believe they have a 99% success rate, but it only takes 60 seconds to check if you’re eligible for compensation, there’s also a no win / no fee and if customers get accepted for compensation, Flight Patrol offers a transparent fixed fee.
Flight Patrol also states passengers should always keep records of their booking confirmation, boarding cards and letters from the airline or emails, with any information about the disruption. In the event of any strike, these documents will help support their claim and assist the team in a prompt claim on the passenger’s behalf.
