Airline Charges For Musical Instruments

EDM number 775 in 2017-19, proposed by Kevin Brennan on 10/01/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Aviation and Performing arts.

This House notes with concern that airlines are increasingly requiring musicians to purchase a seat for guitars, and other musical instruments of similar size, or requiring that they be placed in the aircraft hold where temperatures are very low and damage may occur during transit; further notes the campaign led by the Musicians Union to show more consideration to musicians travelling with their instruments; and calls on the airline industry to adopt a code of practice to give musicians travelling with their instruments greater consideration, fair and consistent treatment, and peace of mind.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
