We can mediate between passenger and airline, if both parties agree. We promote the services and products to enhance air passenger experience. We do like innovative solutions most!

Passengers’ ...

25 June 2016

The European Commission published on 15th June 2016 new interpretative guidelines towards applicable regulation on air passengers rights. Some recommendations are fully in line with remarks submitted by our organization. Firstly, there is no limit to lodge a complaint by a passenger in any official EU language. For example, to any airline flying from / to Poland a passenger has the right to write a complaint in Polish! Secondly, the air carrier should respond to the complaint within two months. This is a result of presentation of the report made by the Friendly Flying on execution of air passengers rights in 2015, followed by months of our engagement in work at the European level. We thank all who signed our petitions and supported us in various ways. It led us to strengthen air passenger rights in EU. Together we can do more!

18 March 2016

As a result of our monitoring of air travel services and handling out-of-court resolution, we have decided to introduce for the first time in 2015 the title of "Passenger Friendly Airline". We have examined the way the airlines manage the relations with their passengers in case of complaints are received and especially to make sure whether the process is run in dialogue with passengers. The goal of such title is to enhance quality standards and good practices within customer relations, and support introduction of new model for Alternative Dispute Resolution in the European Union, including aviation sector. We are pleased to announce the title in 2015 goes to Ryanair!

VICTORIES

The European Parliament voted for enforceable air passenger rights on 5th of February 2014. This decision also resulted from our on-line campaign “NO” to limit air passengers rights! We said “NO” to wait on board of the plane for 5 hours in case of tarmac delay, suspend passenger right to claim compensation at delays from 3 hours and weaken the passenger right to assistance in extraordinary circumstances. Thanks to decision of the European Parliament, delayed or stranded air passengers would be likelier to win compensation, and airlines would get clear rules on how to deal with passenger complaints, under a draft law voted by the Parliament. This vote constituted the European Parliament’s first reading position.
