Price transparency

According to EU legislation, when you purchase a ticket for flights departing from EU airports, the applicable conditions should be made clear to you.
The final price to be paid should be indicated at all times and it should include the applicable air fare, as well as applicable taxes, and charges, surcharges and fees which are unavoidable and foreseeable at the time of publication.
It should also show you the breakdown between the fare, the taxes, the airport charges and finally the other charges, surcharges and fees.
Optional price supplements should be communicated
in a clear, transparent and unambiguous way at the start
of the booking process and your acceptance of them should be on an "opt-in" basis.
