On July 19, 2010, Alitalia and the major Italian consumer protection associations signed the Regulations for Joint Conciliation agreement facilitating the out-of-court settlement of disputes between the Airline and consumers through a cost-free Conciliation Commission established and jointly managed by the signatory associations and the Airline.
The 17 signatories of the agreement were: ACU, Adusbef, Adoc, Altroconsumo, Assoconsum, Assoutenti, Casa del Consumatore, Centro Tutela Consumatori Utenti, Cittadinanzattiva, Codici, Confconsumatori, Federconsumatori, Lega Consumatori, Movimento Difesa del Cittadino, Movimento consumatori and the Unione Nazionale Consumatori.
The Regulation is one of the key elements of the Statement of Understanding signed on July 5, 2010, and in addition to conciliation called for the definition, within one year, of a Charter of Services and a commitment to provide passengers with clear information regarding their rights.
Alitalia was the first airline to sign a conciliation agreement and to establish a permanent negotiating forum with consumer protection associations and considers these methods useful for stimulating the improvement of quality, increasing customer satisfaction and reducing the length and cost of legal proceedings. These initiatives have been taken with the protection of and respect for consumer rights in mind.
Consumers can turn to the conciliation procedure should they not get a reply or an unsatisfactory reply on their claims stemming from disputes regarding flights taken since July 1, 2010, or when there is a variance between the obligations and/or commitments assumed by Alitalia and those actually experienced by the passengers.
