Passenger Rights

On 17 February 2005, Regulation (EC) 261/2004 came into effect. The intention of this Regulation is to reduce the inconvenience caused to air passengers by delays, cancellations and denied boarding. The Regulation provides for standardised and immediate assistance for air passengers where these events occur.
