In 2009, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) called on pilots, crew, airlines, aircraft manufacturers and other interested parties, to submit their views on the problem of smoke or fumes escaping into aircraft cabins/cockpits. We have written extensively on the issue that has become known as Aerotoxic Syndrome and the profound effects upon pilots, crew and passengers following exposure to engine fumes/smoke. We launched our own online petition - The Brown Bag Campaign - which seeks to highlight the 'intelligent' debate on this important subject. We have submitted our own report, whjich follows on from our own report to The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority. The report to EASA contains the latest HolidayTravelWatch survey which contains important pointers and compels politicians that the time for action is now!
- Were you ill or injured on holiday in the last 3 years?
- Do you believe you booked a Package Holiday?
If you can answer yes to both questions, you may be able to bring a claim under the Package Travel Regulations!
Don't worry if you cannot answer yes to both questions; if you think you booked your travel independently, you may be able to make a claim against your travel provider or supplier!
