Passenger rights and legal issues in aviation

van de opleiding navorming More seminars

Locatie: Mechelen -Campus De Ham

How about passenger rights when your flight gets cancelled because the airline goes bankrupt? Or what happens when travellers get stranded because of - let 's say - a strike? What if your luggage gets lost? How to deal with these kinds of issues when working in the travel industry?...

There's more than one question we ask ourselves with regards to the legal aspects of aviation. Expect answers during the next More Seminar in Tourism by Mrs. Yasmin Bhatti. She's an absolute expert when it comes to legal issues that occur in the aviation sector. 



Yasmin advises and represents clients on a wide range of legal issues relating to the Aviation sector, including commercial, regulatory and passenger rights issues.

Yasmin qualified with the Brussels bar in 2014 and from 2014 to 2016 was an associate in the Aviation practice of an international law firm, where she was already part of the team of Catherine Erkelens.

She obtained an LL.M. in Air and Space law from the University of Leiden where she focused on public air law, private air law, and space law from both an international and EU perspective. She wrote her master’s dissertation on the legal issues relating to unruly passengers. She drafted the chapter on Belgium in the Leiden University’s book on Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems, edition 2016.

Yasmin is a regular speaker at conferences related to drones where she deals with the related legislative initiatives, both at national level and at EU level.

Yasmin obtained her Master in Law from the University of Leuven in 2013 where she majored in EU and International Law.

Yasmin is a member of the European Air Law Association.
