Ryanair welcomes Swedish Court decision to reject passenger compensation claim

Ryanair welcomes Swedish Court decision to reject passenger compensation claim

 

Ryanair has welcomed the decision of the Svea Court of Appeal in Stockholm which declared that passengers are not entitled to compensation in cases where extraordinary circumstances apply, as the court overturned the decision of the District Court of Nykoping which awarded two passengers compensation (even though it accepted extraordinary circumstances were present) in breach of the provisions of EU261.

 

 

Ryanair again called on the ARN and RAD&RON to properly apply the EU261 regulations and stop misleading Swedish passengers on compensation claims. Ryanair called for an end to its blacklisting for not paying compensation when EU261 confirms that passengers are not entitled to any such payments in extraordinary circumstances.

 

Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:

“This decision of the Svea Court of Appeal reinforces the provisions of the EU261 which provides that no compensation is due to passengers in cases governed by extraordinary circumstances which are beyond an airlines’ control. We understand that cancelled flights can be frustrating. However, airlines must always take decisions which prioritise the safety of our passengers, crew and aircraft over convenience.

 

We now call on the ARN and RAD&RON to adhere to properly apply the EU261 regulations and stop misleading passengers with incorrect advice about compensation payments which passengers are not entitled to in cases of extraordinary circumstances.”
