Aviation Associations Support Revision Of EU261

Published on : Thursday, May 3, 2018

European Regions Airline AssociationA (European Regions Airline Association*), IATA, AIRE and A4E believe that the EC proposal is still fit for purpose and hope than an adoption is possible under this European Commission’s term. The associations also express their wish that common ground can be found on other provisions such as the partial ban of the no show policy and the obligations in case of missed connections. In addition, ERA, IATA, AIRE and A4E say that the proliferation and the aggressive and sometimes dodgy practices of claim agencies have changed the landscape since 2013. The associations have shared a suggestion for additional wording in the regulation and hope that the Commission can support it when the co-decision process resumes.

 

Finally, regarding the recent adoption of the EC proposal on ‘collective redress’ which includes air passenger rights in its scope, the associations strongly believe that this new instrument will only be used to address ‘mass harm’ situations and that EU261 is already designed to address even extreme situations.

 

ERA, together with the other associations, looks forward to continuing the work on the current revision of Regulation 261 as soon as it is politically feasible.
