Monarch Airlines flight delay compensation claims

History

Monarch Airlines started life in 1967 as part of a Swiss-based company. Its first flight took place from Luton to Madrid in April 1968.  By 2014 the company was operating a fleet of more than 35 aircraft and carrying more than 7 million passengers each year. Popular destinations included Rome, Geneva, Ibiza, Rhodes and Tel Aviv.

Monarch Airlines ceased operating in October 2017, but in the United Kingdom, you still have six years during which you can bring a claim. This grace period means if you have flown with Monarch Airlines in recent years and suffered any delay, you may still be entitled to a Monarch compensation payment.

Monarch flight delays

While it was in operation, Monarch had a fairly poor record for punctuality. In 2015 7.9% of its flights arrived more than 1 hour late. In addition to this, 1.77% of all Monarch flights experienced delays of more than 3 hours. It was significantly more than the national average for airlines at the time which stood at 1.09%. Monarch was ranked 9th for delays out of the top 35 airlines operating in Europe.

Monarch flight delay compensation

In the early days of our dealings with them, Monarch flight compensation was refused. However, this changed after we issued a large number of legal proceedings against the company. As a result of our action, the company contacted us and put in place a streamlined system for dealing with Monarch cancellation compensation and Monarch flight claims.

Once this system was in place, Monarch began making bulk payment of all claims within the strict 14-day deadline we had imposed and became a far more efficient company to deal with. Although claims can still be made under EU regulations, the fact that the company is no longer operation may present additional challenges when it comes to recovering future Monarch flight compensation and payments.
