Josep M. Bech Serrat, 'Re-routing under the Air Passenger’s Rights Regulation' (2011) 36 Air and Space Law, Issue 6, pp. 441–451

Abstract

This article analyses the alternative transportation requirement provided by Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004 in comparison with European sale of goods law, with a view to exploring the limits on re-routing to be provided by air transportation companies and the exercise of the passenger's right to be offered alternative transportation. The article concludes that this is a rarely regulated remedy, and there is room for improvement in a new Regulation to deal with re-routing when the original transportation contracted for is not provided.
