Roadshow on passenger rights
Meglena Kuneva, a special adviser on passenger rights to Vice-President Siim Kallas, began today in Berlin a "roadshow" aimed at promoting the Commission's awareness-raising campaign on passenger rights.
Mrs. Kuneva met with a representative audience of stakeholders from the German public authorities, industry and consumer groups in order to understand how well EU passenger rights (notably in the air and rail sectors) are known and enforced in Germany. By the end of 2011, Mrs. Kuneva's tour will have covered the majority of EU capitals. The ultimate purpose of her action is to ensure that the on-going campaign is sufficiently visible, effective and targeted, and draw inspiration for possible future policy actions in this area, to the benefit of both EU industry and users.
