The Which? consumer group said there is no reason airlines should increase fares in the light of the European Court of Justice ash cloud ruling.
– Which? spokesperson
Today's ruling by the European Court of Justice simply confirms the existing situation relating to the 2010 ash cloud travel disruption - that airlines should reimburse passengers for reasonable costs, including accommodation food and transport.
Airlines already account for compensation in their ticket costs, so there should be no reason for any airline to increase their prices as a result.
