Connecting the dots

Overview

On 7 March 2018, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued its judgment in Flightright and others. The judgment deals with three separate preliminary rulings and, in doing so, answers three jurisdictional questions of law relevant to EC Regulation 261/2004 (Regulation 261).

 

The judgment clarifies a number of points already enshrined in Regulation 261 and case law to date, specifically confirming where an EU carrier may be sued for compensation for delay in the context of directly connecting flights within the EU, even in the absence of a direct contract with the passenger.
