This paper has been written specifically for Members of Parliament and their staff, though others may find it of general interest. It is a compilation of regularly asked questions about aviation issues.

    • How can you complain about a flight or treatment at an airport?

    • How can you get compensation for a delayed or cancelled flight?             
    • How are air passengers protected if an airline goes into administration?
