UK Civil Aviation Regulations

These are published by the CAA on our UK Regulations pages. EU Regulations and EASA Access Guides published by EASA no longer apply in the UK. Our website and publications are being reviewed to update all references. Any references to EU law and EASA Access guides should be disregarded and where applicable the equivalent UK versions referred to instead.

The images below are taken from our published passenger complaints data which is received from CAA approved Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) entities and CAA's Passenger Advice and Complaints Team.

For the full quarterly statistics see: our Passenger complaints data pages

Total Cases Received (and accepted for adjudication)

NB: these figures represent the number of cases received by ADR providers which qualify for adjudication. As the data we receive is a “snapshot” in time (and not all cases may have been assessed), the figures are liable to change over time.

Number of complaints made per million passengers – CDRL/CEDR only

NB: This metric is calculated using the number of complaints received and accepted for adjudication and therefore is liable to vary over time (see comment above).

NB2: For more information about the complaints per million passengers metric, see point 7 on the data interpretation notes that accompany the published data tables.

Uphold Rate

The percentage of all the cases that reach the adjudication/settlement stage that are awarded in favour of the consumer making the complaint.
