Transport Committee MEPs discusses aviation safety with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Executive Director Patrick Ky and the European Commission on Monday afternoon, after the Germanwings air crash in the French Alps in March.  

Efter Germanwing katastrofen i de franske alper i marts drøftede man mandag den 29. juni luftfartssikkerhed i Transportudvalget med Patrick Ky, administrerende direktør for Det Europæiske Luftfartssikkerhedsagentur (EASA) og Kommissionen. EASA har nedsat en arbejdsgruppe for at vurdere den indledende rapport fra den franske civile luftfartsikkerhedsundersøgelsesmyndighed (BEA) om årsagerne til styrtet. Europa-Kommissionen vil nu beslutte, om luftfartssikkerhedsreglerne skal opdateres. (Læs mere: Hvordan man kan forbedre luftfartssikkerheden i EU? )

Interview med Birgit Collin-Langen.  

Internettet har gjort det lettere at bestille feriens forskellige elementer hver for sig. I stedet for den traditionelle pakkerejse, bestiller vi også skræddersyede rejser. Parlamentet og Rådet vedtog d. 5 maj at opdatere de nuværende regler på området, således at onlinekunder får større grad af beskyttelse, som hvis man bestiller hos et traditionelt rejsebureau. Takket være Europa-Parlamentet skal reglerne nu også inkludere forskellige udbydere af services, f.eks. selve flyturen eller et hotel. (Læs mere: Pakkerejser: Rejsende får flere rettigheder )
