Sophia Iwantscheff Airport directly liable for passenger missing flight due to slow security checks

Germany - Arnecke Sibeth

The Erding Local Court held that airport staff must proactively open further lanes in security and urge passengers who are in danger of missing their flights to move along the queue. However, the court also noted that the plaintiff should have left the queue and drawn attention to the approaching boarding time as soon as he risked missing his flight.
