The European Parliament’s resolution meets the requirements of travel agencies

first_img “Ten years ago, the European Parliament had already asked for protection against the insolvency of airlines, and nothing has changed since then. After the failure of 10 European airlines in less than three years, it is time to act at EU level. ” – said Said Pawel Niewiadomski, President of ECTAA. The European Parliament has adopted a Resolution on the negative effects of the bankruptcy of the world’s oldest tourism company Thomas Cook in European tourism. The European Association of Travel Agencies and Tour Operators ECTAA supports the Resolution and particularly welcomes Parliament’s urgent call for protection against airline insolvency. Thomas Cook, Europe’s second-largest tourism operator, went bankrupt on September 23, damaging industry, destinations, tourism service providers and workers. It was also very stressful for the users of the British company Thomas Cook. However, the latter were fully taken care of by the tour operator’s guarantee system established in accordance with European legislation, often referred to as the “Travel Package Directive”. As a result, tourists were able to continue their vacation and return to their homeland. This was possible because tour operators must provide sufficient evidence of security for the return or return of passengers in the event of insolvency. ECTAA welcomes the European Parliament’s Resolution recognizing the importance of tourism in the EU economy, both in terms of wealth (10% of EU GDP) and its social impact (12% of the total workforce), and calls for better recognition of this key EU sectoral levels. The bankruptcy of Thomas Cook Airlines and a number of previous airline failures, show that consumers are not treated equally when a company goes bankrupt. Passengers who buy a package trip are better protected from the bankruptcy of the tour operator who must provide guarantees against his insolvency to ensure the return of the passengers. However, there is no similar protection for passengers who, in the event of the airline’s illiquidity, purchase one airline flight ticket. In this case, passengers cannot get a refund and must purchase a new ticket to return home. Consumers are treated differently, despite the fact that they pay a lot to the airline or tour operator. center_img Source / photo: ECTAA, Pixabaylast_img read more

Don’t use military to fuel Trump’s ego

Follow children on sensible gun control

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I have never been more inspired, heartened or impressed with the youth of our country than I am today as I participate in and watch, “March for Our Lives.” They have created a huge movement, one that won’t give up. United, side by side, in each other’s arms, Asian, Hispanic, African American, Caucasian, male and female. The speakers are all unbelievably confident, poised, logical, articulate, caring and passionate. As I watch these kids, I think this is the best of humanity.The government has abdicated its responsibility to protect life so there is the possibility to enjoy liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We, adults, have abdicated our responsibility to protect our children.It’s time to follow our children and create sensible gun control legislation. Please vote.Bernard MirlingSaratoga SpringsMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%last_img read more

Memorial should be welcomed in Nisky

first_imgRe April 3 letter, “Holocaust memorial should be welcomed”: I agree wholeheartedly with Claudia Fennicks.Regardless of fear mongering, lower property values, vandalism and so on, let’s not forget why the Holocaust memorial is being built —to remember the Holocaust and its millions of victims. Presently, a wave of anti-Semitism throughout our nation and college campuses grows unabated  — more reason why this Holocaust memorial should be built on its planned site.We have our 9/11 memorials, memorials to many other groups, people and causes. No longer shall we give into deniers, revisionists and haters. Sheila and Bob DiSarro, I wouldn’t mind this memorial by my house — I’d be honored. Further, for this memorial to be built on lands owned by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany is a huge step in the right direction. We know that to some degree, some leaders in the church looked the other way and were in many ways complicit in sending Jews to the ovens. The Holocaust is a reminder that will never leave the rest of us either — lest we forget.Gerald PlanteSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcySchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Motorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crash Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more
