Flights cancelled due to COVID-19 – passengers rights
Before the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic obtaining refunds for cancelled flights was a relatively easy process, but will hundreds of thousands of flights cancelled worldwide with millions of prepaid seats, airlines have been very unwilling to part with their cash, insisting instead on issuing travel vouchers in lieu of cash refunds. Passengers whose flights are covered by Regulation (EU) 261/2004 are entitled to a full cash ticket refund if their flight is cancelled, regardless of the reason. The European Commission reiterated this position on May 13th last, emphasising that airlines had a duty to refund passengers and to do so within 7 days of the request.
Remember that you have rights. When applying for your ticket refund cite Regulation (EU) 261/2004. Only accept a travel voucher if it really is in your best interests or you are given an extra bonus or incentive that you are happy with. If you are having difficulties obtaining your refund or the airline is procrastinating you can also use the services of a company that deals with passenger rights.
