It has been 15 years since the inception of the Passenger Rights Regulation (261).
At APRA, we have collected data over the past years and combined it with research from scholars in the aviation industry.
Here is the case for another 15 years: a decrease in delays means a boost to the EU economy of €1bn every year. Europeans love their air pax rights, which makes for happy customers. The cost of 261 is less than €1 per flight ticket sold. Our data also show that there have been zero airline bankruptcies due to Regulation 261. In fact, the industry is thriving, with the top 5 airline groups showing a combined profit of almost €10bn in 2018.
European Passengers want their rights protected. Keep 261 strong!
