We are experts in making flight delay compensation claims

Each year millions of pounds go unclaimed as many airline passengers are still unaware that they are entitled to claim flight delay compensation if their flight was either cancelled or delayed by more than 3 hours. FairPlane UK has reclaimed millions of pounds in flight delay compensation for its clients in recent years and we’ll take the stress and effort out of making a claim.

We are Legal Experts

Airlines rarely pay flight delay compensation voluntarily. 70% of our customers report that their own attempts to obtain compensation directly from the airlines either fall on deaf ears or are routinely rejected. Our legal experience and expertise ensures you won’t be ignored.

Our service is provided on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means that there’s nothing to pay unless your claim is successful.

If your claim is successful, the airline will initially pay your compensation directly to us. We will then deduct our fee of 21% + VAT (and the insurance premium of £27.50) from the monies we receive. We will then either transfer your compensation directly to your bank account or send you a cheque in the post.

The compensation you receive for a flight delay or cancellation is not taxable.
