Regulation 261/2004 on Air Passengers’ Rights has been amongst the most high-profile pieces of EU secondary legislation of the past years, generating controversial CJEU judgments, from ex parte IATA to Sturgeon.

At the same time the Regulation should, according to the Treaty, have the same direct and general application in all the Member States of the Union. How, then, can this diversity be explained? What implications do they have for the EU’s regulatory strategy at large?

This book brings together leading experts in the field to present a series of case studies from 10 different Member States as well as the extra-territorial application of Regulation 261 combined with high-level analysis from the perspectives of Aviation law and EU law.
