Aviation: FAQs for 2020

Published Monday, January 13, 2020

This paper has been written specifically for Members of Parliament and their staff, though others may find it of general interest.

It is a compilation of regularly asked questions about aviation issues. There is no intended link between articles other than that the topics are often the subject of requests by Members, usually on behalf of their constituents.

It covers the following issues:

  • Who is responsible for aviation policy and its implementation;
  • The potential impact of Brexit;
  • Passenger rights and how to get compensation when you are delayed or your flight is cancelled;
  • The rights of passengers with a disability or reduced mobility;
  • Protections when an airline goes into administration;
  • Air accident investigations;
  • Dealing with noise and nuisance and what to do about changes to flight paths;
  • Heathrow expansion; and
  • Drones.

Further details on these issues and more can be found in a suite of Commons Library briefing papers, available on our website.
