Under EU legislation people with disabilities and/or reduced mobility are protected from being discriminated against during reservation and boarding. They are also entitled to receive assistance at airports (on departure, on arrival and in transit) and on board airplanes. In order to facilitate the provision of assistance, it is recommended to pre-notify your needs. More information

What should you do if you believe your passenger rights have been infringed?

If you consider that your entitlements under air passenger rights legislation have been breached:


  • You should first contact the airline or - for issues related to persons with reduced mobility - the airport.
  • If you are not satisfied with their response, you can lodge a complaint with a National Enforcement Body (NEB).

NOTE: Complaints should in principle be filed in the country where the incident took place.
