Press: EU to push for air ticket transparency

17th Jul 2006

Airlines would be banned from using misleading advertisements for cheap tickets and would have to include all ‘hidden extras’ in the price, under rules to be outlined by the European Commission tomorrow, the Financial Times reported. Transport Commissioner Jacques Barrot wants a set of rules to guarantee price transparency across Europe so passengers can compare tickets easily and know that the price they see is the price they will pay, the newspaper said without naming sources.

Ryanair Holdings PLC has recently been accused of misstating taxes and airport passenger fees on its European routes. The no-frills airline denied the claims.
