Plane Delay Compensation- Qatar Airways
Plane Delays Compensation and Qatar Airways
Plane delays can lead to compensation against Qatar Airways if, for instance, your plane from Heathrow to non EU Airport by more than 3 hours or more. The other criteria for passengers to make a claim are as follows:
- Was your Qatar Airways plane delay within the last 6 years
- Qatar Airways plane delay was not due to an “exceptional circumstance.”
Even though the Airline Company is not EU based, providing that the Airline departs from a UK based airport, the EU plane delay Regulations apply and thus if there is a delay of 3 hours or more, compensation can be obtained. No delayed plane compensation against Qatar Airways can be obtained if the plane was returning back to the UK from a non-EU Country.

Plane delays compensation and “exceptional circumstances.”
It was thought by Airlines that if the plane delays were due to mechanical or electrical failures which could not routinely be detected by the usual service and maintenance of the aircraft.
This argument was put to the test in court but the airlines failed. Even if it was a mechanical fault with the plane, it did not stop the chance to make a plane delay compensation claim against Qatar Airways or other Airline Companies that breach the EU Regulations.
The exceptional circumstances can be summarised as follows:
- Serious weather conditions. EG. Volcanic Ash Cloud,
- Traffic Control Strikes,
- Terrorism threats.
- Political Debates.
As such examples are completely outside Qatar Airways control, compensation for plane delays can be obtained
