The European Commission is currently reviewing the EU law governing Computerised Reservation Systems (Regulation (EC) 80/2009). These are used for travel bookings, particularly for air travel, and usually allow users access to make their own bookings. The Regulation establishes a code of conduct that is designed to prevent abuse of competition and to ensure that the information provided to consumers is neutral. EPF welcomed the opportunity to contribute to the consultation launched as part of the Commission’s review.
More information on the Consultation and the evaluation roadmap of the Regulation can be found here.
EPF has also published a position paper summarising our views on the review of the CRS Regulation and on passengers’ need for price transparency.
