Weclaim’s EU261 success against a Swiss airline
For non-Europeans, it might come as a surprise that Switzerland is not part of the European Union. Notwithstanding this, Switzerland is signatory to the European Union Regulation 261/2004 (“EU261”).
This means that your travel is additionally protected by the EU261 if your flight is from Switzerland to the EU (irrespective of air carrier).
Swiss air carriers cannot circumvent their responsibilities under the EU261 by citing that the flight was “extra-territorial” to the operation of EU261.
Weclaim has had success against a Swiss airline who tried this very argument.
Weclaim won this case with extra compensation with respect to the additional costs in having to have the matter determined before the Court with the result that our customer was awarded a greater amount than first claimed.
If a Swiss airline has advised you that you are not owed compensation under EU261 because of “extra-judicial” incompetence, then it is worth having your matter reviewed by Weclaim.
