Air passengers’ rights: closing speech by Antonio Tajani

4 views

A l'initiative de la Commission, s'est tenue les 2 et 3 décembre 2008 une rencontre sur les droits des passagers voyageant par avion. Cet événement, réunissant professionnels du secteur et administrations nationales, a permis de faire le point sur l'application des règlements européens. La Commission a annoncé son intention d'adopter les mesures correctrices nécessaires dès le début 2009. Pour le règlement dit "droits des passagers aériens" (261/2004), Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, a annoncé son intention de lancer des procédures d'infraction contre les Etats membres qui n'assurent toujours pas l'application correcte du règlement, et de proposer à la Commission l'adoption d'une Communication sur les droits des passagers aériens en 2009. Cette Communication établira un état des lieux concernant l'application du règlement 261/2004 par toutes les parties concernées, y compris les autorités nationales chargées de veiller au respect des droits des passagers. La Communication pourra aussi se pencher sur d'autres aspects liés aux droits des passagers au-delà du règlement. Le règlement 1107/2006, pleinement en vigueur depuis le 26 juillet 2008, donne aux personnes handicapées ou dont la mobilité est réduite pour d'autres raisons un accès au transport aérien comparable à celui dont jouissent les autres voyageurs quand ils prennent l'avion au départ, à l'arrivée ou en transit dans un aéroport de l'Union européenne, sans discrimination et sans surcoût. La Commission attend de l'application effective et immédiate de ces mesures une réponse efficace aux besoins d’une partie importante de la population, qui ne cesse d’augmenter avec le vieillissement démographique de l'Europe. L'année 2009 sera également cruciale pour le succès de ces mesures.
