Flight Compensation Claims - Litigating Against Airlines
Every year millions of people in the UK have their holidays or business trips ruined by delayed or cancelled flights yet many do not know they have a right to claim hundreds of pounds of compensation from their airline. The EU Regulation 261/2004 was introduced in 2005 and established common rules on compensation and assistance to passengers in the event of being denied boarding, suffering a cancelled flight or suffering a delayed flight.
Presented by Neil Morrison, who successfully represented an air passenger in the well-publicised and reported Scottish court decision of Vergara v Ryanair, this course will identify the key legal issues that air passengers need to know before raising proceedings against the airlines using the Regulation.
The UK's recent vote to leave the EU will not immediately change consumer rights although it will become clearer in due course how the impact of leaving the EU will affect the issue of European flight delay compensation.
The course is aimed at solicitors and is also suitable for claims management companies.
