In Georgia, air passengers will be able to claim compensation in case of flight delays. Amendments are being made to the existing regulations, the Civil Aviation Agency of the Ministry of Economy of Georgia reports.

As noted, the innovations serve to protect the rights of passengers. Passengers of Georgian airports who have purchased tickets for flights of both local and foreign airlines will be able to count on compensation. In addition, the regulator may also oblige to pay compensation to passengers of Georgian airlines who could not fly to Georgia on time.

In the event that the airline proves that the flight delay was due to a special situation that could not be prevented, passengers will not be able to receive compensation.

Until now, airlines had to pay compensation only in the event of a complete cancellation of the flight or the passenger's non-admission to the plane.

The document was developed on the basis of EC rules.
