Thomson flight delay compensation
We were having to issue a lot of legal proceedings against Thomson Airways to enforce their passengers’ rights to flight delay compensation however, due to the high volume of airline compensation claims, Thomson contacted us to request that we work based on a spreadsheet of cases and an agreed timescale. We now work closely with them to ensure all Thomson delayed flight compensation claims are processed promptly.
