Question for written answer E-000851-19
to the Commission
Rule 130

 Subject:  Transparent competition among airlines
 Answer in writing 

Low-cost airlines account for a significant share of the market in EU Member States. In August 2018, some of them changed their cabin baggage allowance size.

This has jeopardised fair competition among airlines and could be considered misleading to consumers, who in many cases use flight search engines giving the lowest fare. Some consumers might have been misled to the extent that they were not expecting to be offered different services.

Does not the Commission think that common EU standards should be established for the purpose of specifying which services should be included in the air ticket price?
