European policy-makers and airlines are working together to ensure that air passengers are entitled to have the best services when it comes to cancellation, delays or other inconveniences. The revision of the current legislation is now timely to ensure that passenger rights are coherent and practical.
The European Commission’s newly proposed measures to help air passengers obtain their rights in Europe are a step in the right direction, now it’s the European Parliament’s turn to voice its opinion.
Tomorrow, 24 September, the Association of European Airlines (AEA) together with Member of the European Parliament (MEP), Georges Bach, will organize a luncheon debate where Members of the European Parliament and airlines can gather to exchange their views on this key regulation.
“It is in the interest of AEA airlines to provide the highest quality of services and care for the benefit of their passengers,” said Athar Husain Khan, acting Secretary General of the AEA.
“We want a final regulation that serves passengers’ interest in a reasonable way without putting extra burden on airlines,” he added.
MEP Georges Bach said the European Parliament aims to conclude rules that confirm existing passenger rights and improve the legislation where it has proved unsatisfactory.
“There is a need for clarification for all the actors,” Mr. Bach said.
