Millions of passengers will remain without protection against bankruptcy airlines
"The European Commission is currently accedes to the legislative initiative that would lead to the introduction of a compulsory mechanism for assuring the passengers with a single ticket in the event of bankruptcy of the airline," said Roman Škrabánek, president of the Association of Czech Travel Agencies (AČCKA).
He added that thus there is still a huge gap in the level of consumer protection in the case of individual paths are independent ticket in the case of air transport within the tour package purchased from travel agents when passengers are protected by the Directive on package holidays.
The European Commission issued a Communication to the European Parliament and the Council, which justified its decision with regard to the allegedly difficult situation in the aerospace industry, for which the new European legislation is too great a burden.
"The European Commission sees the road ahead and the possibility of increased occupant protection in a more consistent use of existing legislative instruments rather than adopting additional standards," concluded spokeswoman Catherine AČCKA Petříčková.
