Europe: EU Transport: Commission informs disabled passengers about their rights

Posted 05/7-10 at 23.31

Over the last few years the European Commission has introduced legislation to ensure air and rail passengers benefit from the same standards of treatment throughout the European Union. They have now (from end of June 2010) launched a campaign to inform travellers of their access rights and what they can do if things go wrong.

Besides posters and leaflets in airports and railway stations, a website in 23 languages has also be set up. Until mid-July information on the site is only available in English.

The Commission is also working to extend passenger rights to other forms of transport, such as travel by sea, inland waterways, as well as coach and bus.
