EVENT: European Commission’s Revision of Regulation 261/2004

Source – EAC:




Organize a one day conference in Brussels on 15 JUNE 2012
on the European Commission’s revision of Regulation 261/2004,
establishing common rules on compensation and assistance to passengers in the event of denied boarding and of cancellation or long delay of flights.

The European Aviation Club and the International Institute of Air and Space Law of Leiden University are jointly organising a major conference in Brussels on 15 June on the subject of the revision of Regulation 261/2004.
Whilst the Regulation has brought about undoubted benefits to passengers, it has caused airlines significant expense in money and management time, and it is appropriate to consider whether this Regulation would strike the right balance between the different interests.

Following the public consultations on this subject and the impact study which it had commissioned, the European Commission is currently reviewing all the results, and when finished will decide whether the Regulation merits revision; and if so will issue a proposal for amendment.

Venue: Hotel Bristol Stephanie, Avenue Louise 91-93, 1050 Brussels
The conference will start at 9.45 and end at 18.00 after which a drink will be served

Please see attached programme and registration form.

This conference, which will be attended by several representatives of the European Commission and the Council as well as a wide range of industry stakeholders, represents the last opportunity for interested parties to provide their own input into the process with the possibility of influencing the outcome.
