Frequently asked questions

What is ClaimAir?

ClaimAir is a service that handles the end-to-end flight and baggage claims process on behalf of travelers or its business partners.

What kind of compensations
are covered?

ClaimAir gets travelers financial compensation that is legally owed them by airlines in a case of flight disruptions (delay, cancellation, denied boarding due to overbooking), baggage mishandling (delay, loss) or baggage damage.

How does ClaimAir work?

ClaimAir first checks compensation eligibility based on basic details about traveler's booking and troubles. If entitlement exists, ClaimAir communicates with the airline on traveler behalf to get compensation. Once the airline pays, ClaimAir immediately disperses 75% of received amount to the traveler.

Why should I assign the ownership of a claim to ClaimAir?

In case a court enforcement becomes necessary, you might be required to sign a power of attorney by using public notary services. It obviously bears significant costs around €80. To avoid these costs and complexity of the process, it’s easier to assign your rights to ClaimAir. Rest assured that the ownership of a claim will be assigned back to you in case we don’t get the compensation. To find out more, please read our terms and conditions.

Is ClaimAir a free service?

ClaimAir is a risk-free service based on 25% success fee. It means that the fee is applicable only if ClaimAir gets compensation from the airline.
