Brussels moves on air passenger rights

3 January 2007

A bill of rights for European airline passengers could be redrawn amid mounting evidence the flagship measure is being widely ignored.

Jacques Barrot, European Union transport commissioner, is preparing follow-up action to enforce the air passenger rights law, which was introduced two years ago. The directive’s failure is an embarrassment for the Commission, which saw it as a way of demonstrating the ability of Brussels to improve citizens’ lives.

Under the directive, travellers are entitled to compensation or refunds for delayed flights.
