Do airlines have to pay for hotel if flight is cancelled?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

Yes, airlines may have to provide hotel accommodations for cancelled flights in certain circumstances. Generally, when a cancellation is caused by the airline’s own fault, it must provide hotel lodging or comparable accommodations as long as there is an inconvenience to the customer. Airlines may also provide hotel arrangements for longer delays or unexpected cancellations, such as for mechanical or weather-related disruptions.
