Executive Seminar on Air Ticket Distribution and the Regulation 80/2009 on a Code of Conduct for Computerised Reservation Systems

- Air, Transport

On Monday, 13th May 2019, the Transport Area of the Florence School of Regulation together with the European Commission’s DG MOVE co-hosted an executive seminar to exchange views on the future of air ticket distribution in the EU, in the context of the ongoing evaluation of Regulation 80/2009 on a Code of Conduct for Computerised Reservation Systems (CRS).

The seminar brought together representatives from all interested stakeholder groups, namely airlines, technology companies and travel agencies for an exchange around the five key issues of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and EU added value of the regulation.

Seminar participants were in agreement that the future EU regulation governing the air ticket distribution market needs to place consumer protection at its core. To this end, it was suggested, that the new rules should be flexible, future-proof, and conducive to innovation and healthy competition.

FSR-Transport Director Matthias Finger, who moderated the discussions, concluded the seminar by highlighting the importance of the revised regulation taking into account digitalisation and multi-modality.

We would like to thank all participants for travelling to Florence and contributing to a lively debate.
