Airlines are becoming more aware that passengers will be making flight delay compensation claims and so they are setting up departments to deal with them. Unfortunately, this tends to be just the larger airlines with the smaller ones simply handling any flight delay claims in their customer services department.
The speed that a claim is paid will be dependent on the airline but also on the company you choose to assist you in making your flight delay compensation claim. We give airlines a strict 21 days to pay flight delay claims before we issue legal proceedings against them. We do this because airlines have a habit of fobbing off delay claims and simply ignoring them. We are not prepared to allow this to happen and so we enforce your legal entitlement to flight delay compensation through the UK courts.
This can sound scary but in reality it isn’t. The reason is that you will never have to attend court or get involved in any legal work or issues – that’s our job. We prepare everything for you and do all of the leg-work which means you can just sit back and wait to be paid your flight delay compensation to arrive in your bank account.
So how long does this all take? Well our average is about 4 weeks but some airlines pay very quickly. Others just refuse to pay point blank so those delay claims can take longer. If we have to issue legal proceedings then it can take 3 to 4 months.
If you have a valid flight delay compensation claim then, if you use Fairplane UK Limited, you will get your money. We can’t say exactly when but we will always work as hard as possible to get your delay compensation as quickly as possible. We only get paid when you get your money so it is in our interests too!
