Jet2 is a well-known low-cost airline in the United Kingdom. It’s headquartered at Leeds Bradford Airport. It operates over 60 aircrafts and services nearly 30 destinations across 9 countries in Europe.

If your Jet2 flight is delayed by 3 hours or more, you’re entitled to compensation. The amount of compensation you can claim from the airline depends on the length of the flight.

  • On short-haul flights, which under 1,500 km, you can claim up to €250 for a delay of 3 hours.
  • On medium-haul flights, which are between 1,500 km and 3,500 km, you can claim up to €400 for a delay of more than 3 hours.
  • On long-haul flights, which are over 3,500 km, you can claim up to €600 for a delay of more than 4 hours. In case the delay on a long-haul flight is between 3 and 4 hours, then you can claim up to €300.

Besides paying you this compensation, the airline is also obligated to provide you with food and drinks, when the flight is delayed more than 2 hours. In case they can’t or don’t provide refreshments, save all the receipts for food and drinks you purchase. You can ask for reimbursement later on.

The airline is also supposed to provide you with the means to make a call or email if the flight is delayed for more than 2 hours.
