The Committees on Petitions and on Transport and Tourism will hold a hearing to assess how effectively air passenger rights were safeguarded during the COVID-19 outbreak, on 14 July. The pandemic has resulted in many passengers having their flights cancelled by airlines. National emergency measures such as flight bans, and quarantine or negative COVID-19 test requirements, were also taken. The hearing will look into whether the EU’s current legal framework is adequate to deal with such crises.
