easyJet Flight Delays and Cancellations: Advice to Passengers

Flight delays and cancellations are inevitably becoming more common experience among passengers as air traffic congestion, changing weather patterns and security issues often prevail as reasons. The experience can be more excrutiating to those who endure long-haul flights, fighting jet lag while catching a connecting flight.

If you are flying easyJet and experience flight disruptions, it offers, at least on its website, a clear set of instructions to passengers.

Flight delayed by less than three hours:
If delays are less than two hours, passengers are advised to keep updated using easyJet’s Flight Tracker smartphone app. But if delay exceeds two hours, passengers may request easyJet to provide meal vouchers for use within the terminal. Just ask for ground staff for more details.

Flight delayed more than three hours:
Passengers are advised to reach out to easyJet customer team in the airport to avail of refreshments while waiting for the flight.

Flight delayed overnight:
Passengers are entitled to a hotel accommodation as well as meal in the evening and breakfast the following morning as they wait for their flight. Please make necessary arrangements with easyJet staff at the airport.

Should easyJet fail to book hotel accommodations, passengers can book by themselves and later apply to refund the cost of a reasonably priced room, plus evening meal and breakfast.

Flight has been cancelled:
Passengers of cancelled flights have three options.

a. Move the flight to another easyJet flight schedule free of charge. This can be done online using the Manage Booking section of easyJet website.
