EBACE 2024

The hashtagEBACE show has come to an end, generating a lot of excitement among aviation enthusiasts and industry experts. As business aviation continues to evolve, the event was a hub of innovation and progress.

It was great to start new connections and, of course, strengthen our current working relationships with many!

EBAA Celebrates Landmark Victory in Polish Supreme Administrative Court PNR Case

Brussels, May 24, 2024 – The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) is proud to announce a significant legal victory in Poland, marking a historic precedent for the Passenger Name Record (PNR) issue in the country. Yesterday, the Supreme Administrative Court of Poland issued a landmark ruling, the first of its kind, which opens the path for all affected parties to pursue their claims regarding PNR regulations.

This groundbreaking case, the first PNR case ever heard in Poland, sets a precedent that will shape future jurisprudence in the country. The case was brought forward by an air carrier in the business aviation sector, which was administratively fined by the Border Guard for allegedly violating the PNR Law. However, the Supreme Administrative Court reversed the judgment of the lower court and annulled the decision imposing the fine, aligning its ruling with the provisions of the European Directive 2016/681 (PNR Directive) and the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), ref. C-817/19.

The Court’s decision underscores that penalties imposed on air carriers cannot be automatically applied and highlights the need for legislative changes to harmonize national laws with European principles. This ruling is the first final judgment by a Polish court on this matter and is expected to influence subsequent cases significantly.

We have been working on this issue for a long time, and this ruling is great news for our members. It demonstrates the power of having a collective voice in Europe and underscores the importance of our ongoing advocacy efforts. This victory highlights the strength and unity of the business aviation community in Europe” said Robert Baltus, Chief Operations Officer of EBAA.

Holger Krahmer, EBAA Secretary General added We are thrilled with the Supreme Administrative Court’s decision, which not only vindicates our member air carrier but also paves the way for more just and equitable treatment under the PNR regulations,”.  “This victory is a testament to the collective efforts and support from our members and the broader business aviation community.” He continued.

EBAA remains committed to advocating for the rights and interests of business aviation operators across Europe and will continue to support efforts to ensure fair and just application of aviation laws and regulations. We thank our partners: A4E, IATA, and ERA for collaborating with us and our members.
