Spanair bankruptcy administration puts at the end of the tail to the customers
So lawyers spokespersons of the Association evaluated the decision of the bankruptcy administration of those affected by the cessation of operations of Spanair (ACOS), whose spokesman, CÃ¡ndido Conde-Pumpido Varela, points to this newspaper that “we advocate agencies to return the money to the affected passengers, but another thing is the way of proceeding of the Administration”, that is which corresponds, in its defence of the mass of the contest goal”.
Why this Association is focusing on getting contest to move from voluntary to mandatory and to involve the Government and the Council of Spanair so face debts.
According to the Association, the bankruptcy administration, as usual in all cases of contest, prioritize payments to workers, to the detriment of other creditors.
According to its spokesman, in addition to the travel agencies, the Administration also has asked the same issuers of credit cards, although in these cases there is a clause that allows the customer to refuse payment for services not rendered”.
rejection of CEAVYT
For its part, the Spanish Confederation of travel agencies and tour operators (CEAVYT) has rejected the position of the bankruptcy administration, and its, Rafael Gallego, points out that this measure is entirely unacceptable, considering the inadequacy of a measure that forces “to pay money from a few customers who have not enjoyed the Service contracted to Spanair”.
This situation, CEAVYT urges Spanair and bankruptcy administration to study the possibility of reimbursing these amounts to travelers since, otherwise, it would be prejudice their rights. Also, CEAVYT continues, too, with a legal study allowing to determine responsibilities before the closure of Spanair, analyzing different measures to take in the defense of the interests both of the agencies as customers.
