A4E supports legislation on air passengers right that make the rules fair, clear, and easy to apply. The revision of Regulation 261/2004 on air passenger rights is extremely important in terms of legal certainty and a fair balance of consumer and industry interests.
The EU Council needs to urgently proceed with the file. The current Regulation 261/2004 is too detailed and prescriptive and, at the same time, too vague on essential points. This continues to generate numerous Court rulings across the EU, with judges interpreting the Regulation in varying ways but often extensively.
