What is flyEgypt’s compensation policy for delayed or cancelled flights?
We strive to abide by our scheduled flight times. To do this, we may arrange for a flight to be operated on our behalf by an alternative carrier and/or aircraft without accepting the obligation to make such arrangements. If we cancel a flight, fail to operate a flight according to its scheduled date and time, fail to stop at your destination or stopover destination, or cause you to miss a connecting flight on which you had a confirmed reservation, we shall, at your option, either:
- Carry you at the earlier opportunity on another of our scheduled flights on which space is available without additional charge and, where necessary, extend the validity of your Ticket;
- Within a reasonable period of time re-route you to the destination shown on your ticket by our own flights or those of another carrier, or by other mutually agreed means and class of transportation without additional charges. If the fare and charges for the revised routing are lower than what you have paid, we shall refund the difference, or make a refund minus applicable taxes, charges and fees;
- If it is not possible to carry you to the destination shown on your ticket within a reasonable period of time using our own services and if you do not wish a refund, we may use the services of another carrier chosen by us to bring you to the destination (same class If available);
- Where your flight is due to be operated by us from an airport within the EU and has been cancelled or delayed for at least four (4) hours or you have been downgraded on an involuntary basis you may be entitled to certain rights and we will inform you about those rights when they arise;
- If you fail to reconfirm a reservation for any flight where it is required that reconfirmation is necessary, we may cancel all of your reservations. No refund of the fare paid will be available in these reservations unless permitted by the conditions applicable to your ticket;
For the comfort, safety and convenience of all our passengers, we have maximum weight and dimension limits for allowed cabin baggage which are made clear to passengers during the booking process, and again at the airport prior to check-in.
Unless stated otherwise, the maximum allowed weight for cabin baggage is 7kg.
If your cabin baggage does not meet the above-mentioned requirements, we may request that you check it in; this may incur additional charges if your ticket does not include an allowance for checked-in baggage.
If in doubt, please contact us on our support channels.
