Changes from 1.1.2021
The European Flight Compensation Regulation continues to apply to flights from a British airport (UK) to Switzerland if operated by a Swiss or European airline.
As the enforcement authority the FOCA is now responsible for assessing incidents with regard to these flights.
For flights from a British airport (UK) to Switzerland operated by a British (or non-Swiss/non-EU) airline, the national British passenger rights apply.
There are also changes to the Regulation on the rights of persons with disabilities and reduced Mobility for flights departing from or arriving at a United Kingdom (UK) airport.
However, certain rights, such as the right to assistance from the airline, will continue to apply to air passengers departing from a United Kingdom (UK) airport to an airport in the EU if it is an EU or Swiss airline.
