Jet2.com flight delay compensation claims
Jet2.com is a low-cost airline operating out of Leeds Bradford airport in the north of England. Originally a cargo service, the company adopted the name Jet2.com shortly before its first leisure flight in 2003 from Leeds Bradford to Amsterdam. Jet2.com currently carries just under 7 million passengers each year. These stats make it the fourth largest airline in the UK, behind British Airways, EasyJet and Flybe but ahead of Virgin Atlantic in terms of the number of passengers carried. The company has a fleet of more than 50 aircraft and flies to more than 40 destinations. Jet2.com has purchased 34 Boeing 737-800 aircraft which will come into service in early 2019.
Jet2.com flight delays
On average, flights operated by Jet2.com land 13.25 minutes behind schedule. This means the company ranks a poor 25th out of the 35 airlines operating in the UK regarding its record for delayed flights. Delays of one hour or more occurred on 4.22% of Jet2.com flights while more serious delays of 3 hours or more occurred on 0.62% of flights operated by the company.
However, there has been a recent improvement in the situation. Air travel analysts OAG found Jet2.com to be the most punctual airline in the 12 months up to September 2017 and was the only British carrier awarded a five-star rating by the group thanks to 87.5% of flights running on time.
Jet2.com flight delay compensation
In the past, Jet2 flight compensation claims tended to be virtually ignored by the company, forcing the team at FairPlane to issue legal proceedings to recover compensation payments that were owed. Thankfully the situation has now changed. Jet2 flight claims and Jet2 cancellation compensation claims are now being dealt with in a far more sensible fashion. That said, any Jet2 compensation claims that the company believes to be unjustified are still being vigorously defended.
