The Aviation (Consumers)(Amendment) Regulations 2023

I was a member of the Committee scrutinising the Aviation (Consumers)(Amendment) Regulations 2023 on Tuesday 11 November 2023 relating to Regulation (EC) 261/2004 to restate key principles of relevant European Union (“EU”) case law. This Regulation establishes common rules on compensation and assistance for passengers in the event of denied boarding, cancellation, or long delay of flights. The instrument aims to maintain the status quo and clarify the safeguarding of consumer rights in the United Kingdom (“UK”) aviation industry.
