An Irish MEP is backing a European Parliament bid to get rid of hidden baggage charges imposed on airline passengers.
The proposed reform is to regulate the cost of a final price ticket so passengers are not hit with hidden bills before they go through departures.
Ireland South MEP Sean Kelly says it needs to be easier for people to compare prices without any hidden costs:
“What we need is transparency, accuracy, and detail. And I will say in fairness, since COVID, things haven’t been as bad as they had been before. But I can see it because you would have situations where people would be in the queue in front of you, that they have to put their case in to measure it and if it didn’t fit in, if they couldn’t pack it in, then they’d have to pay extra. I think all these things need to be resolved.”
