Press: EU may redraw air passenger charter

3rd Jan 2007

A bill of rights for European Union airline passengers could be redrawn due to mounting evidence the flagship measure is being widely ignored, the Financial Times reports Wednesday. Jacques Barrot, European Union transport commissioner, is preparing follow-up action to enforce the air passenger rights law, which was introduced two years ago.

Under the directive, travelers are entitled to compensation or refunds for delayed flights. However, a quarter of inbound flights at E.U. airports are an average of 40 minutes late, according to the Association of European Airlines.
