The European Court of Justice (ECJ) and the German High Court of Justice (Bundesgerichtshof – BGH) passed judgments with respect to the question of who is the relevant “operating air carrier” in the meaning of Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 and, as a result, who is responsible for compensation claims of passengers in cases where the aircraft operator operated the aircraft under a wet lease arrangement or a code sharing agreement.

Our client briefing gives an overview on the Regulation and discusses the key aspects of the judgments.
