Lennuabi is a website, that provides a legal representation for air travellers and specializes in the enforcement of air passenger rights. Our team has handled the claims of thousands of customers and claimed over a million euros on their behalf.
Lennuabi takes over the communication between the airline and the Client. We assist our clients with legal issues and, if necessary, represent them in court.
Lennuabi is completely risk-free – if you do not get compensation, it will cost you nothing. Our service fee is 30% and it applies only to successful claims.
Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 covers all flights within EU as well as departures to and from the EU operated by a company with its head office in the EU. In addition to the EU countries, the Regulation also covers the following countries: Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, French Guiana, Martinique, Mayotte, Guadeloupe, Reunion, Saint-Martin, Madeira, the Azores and the Canary Islands.
For one-way travel, the passenger can receive compensation between € 250 and € 600 (depending on the distance traveled). Please note that a single flight means a starting point and a final destination and does not include layovers. The exact amount of the claim depends on the total distance traveled, the length of the delay and other factors.
Yes, an air passenger always has the right to make a claim, regardless of whether he or she bought the ticket himself or herself. There is also entitlement to compensation if the ticket was purchased with the airline’s bonus points.
Yes, in addition to the benefits above, the right to compensation remains.
However, be wary of vouchers or free tickets, as you risk losing any additional claims (unless you prefer the airline’s offer to money).
Flight delays are calculated based to the time of arrival at the final destination (same booking).
On average the claims take 1-2 business days to process. However, the exact length of the proceedings and receiving money depends on the complexity of the case and the airline. Depending on the circumstances of the particular claim, the process takes 1-7 months.
Currently we do not deal with claims for delayed or damaged luggage. However, you are entitled to a refund (at the airline’s discretion) and we recommend that you do the following to claim your refund:
– always keep your boarding pass and luggage registration vouchers until you have received and checked the luggage;
– notify damage to luggage (or items inside) no later than 7 days after receiving the luggage, ideally immediately;
– fill out a claim or Property Irregularity Report before leaving the airport. It is also advisable to have your luggage examined when doing so;
– further instructions on how to handle your luggage claim can be found in the airline’s luggage service counter.
Lennuabi Express offers its customers a faster service than the normal claim process. The average process takes about 2-6 months, depending on the airline, or 8-12 months if litigation is involved. After receiving and accepting the purchase offer, Lennuabi Express will allow you to receive the money within three working days – we will pay out all cases submitted on business days before 2 pm on the same day!
Lennuabi currently buys claims where the operating airline is SmartLynx Estonia, Finnair, SAS (Scandinavian Airlines), Air Baltic, LOT Polish Airlines or Nordica. We will add other airlines as soon as possible.
All purchase requests submitted before 2 pm on business days will receive an offer on the same day. If the customer immediately signs the offer, we will also transfer the same day!
Lennuabi evaluates a number of factors when making a purchase offer. In particular, we analyse the weather conditions at the respective airports, the timeliness of other similar flights, press releases on possible strikes and more.
We make a flight-specific purchase offer according to our analysis. In no case will Lennuabi provide less than 50% of the compensation under the Regulation EU261/2004.
