Event Description

Public Hearing on

"Pirates of the Sky: the corners cut by low cost airlines"

Low cost airlines offer very low cost tickets whist both cabin crew and pilot rights, including safety for passengers and workers, are not fulfilled to the same quality as the other air carriers. The main purpose of the hearing is to highlight and identify problems when dealing with Low Cost Airlines. We will also explore issues relating to ground handling services and related jobs. Representatives from the respective professional fields are invited to share and pinpoint the problems concerning the topic of costs and safety in order to build a common understanding that will be helpful for passengers, cabin crew and airports.
