Petition of the FIM - travelling by plane with instrument

14.06.2012 - The International Federation of Musicians (FIM) launches a petition requesting the European Commissioner responsible for transport, M. Siim Kallas, to take the musicians' concerns into account regarding the update of the rule 261/2004 on air passenger rights (currently under revision). 

Professional musicians who need to travel by plane with their instruments in order to work face an unpredictable and often unfair behaviour from airlines. For these musicians, not to be permitted to travel with their instrument usually means having to give up traveling and losing a job apportunity.
