We have been working together with Patrick Gibbels for the past 3 years to help us with the political developments in Europe concerning air passenger rights. Patrick has a keen understanding of the European legal and political system and shown great interest and knowledge of the issues we are dealing with. We rely on him to keep us up to date on any developments in the European Parliament, and Council, and advising us who to talk to and how to approach each issue. He has also been instrumental in the creation of the Association of Passenger Rights Advocates (APRA) and is an active and supportive Secretary General for the group.
