EASA upgrades its website, offering dedicated area for air passengers
High level overview of the Agency’s main activities in safety and environmental protection as well as its role as an EU agency and its international activities
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has upgraded its website, offering a completely new area with information for air passengers and the general public and enhancements such as notifications, so that visitors can stay informed on new developments.
As airlines ready to resume services after the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the new site offers guidance to both industry and passengers on the new procedures which will allow air travel to restart safely from both an operational and public health point of view. It includes detailed FAQs for passengers, so they can better understand why the measures mean it is safe to fly.

The website has a new fresh design which enhances its usability, improves performance and allows mobile users to experience the website as an app. By creating an account, visitors can not only get notifications on updates in their category of interest, but also personalise their stream in the site to meet their specific needs.
EASA Light, for passengers, EU citizens and the general public, on www.easa.europa.eu contains a high level overview of the Agency’s main activities in safety and environmental protection as well as its role as an EU agency and its international activities. In addition, it carries news and feature updates on topics that appeal to a wider audience, such as usage of drones. On the website also the EASA Pro, for aviation authorities which requires access by registering an account.
“The new passenger content will make it much easier for members of the public to understand the core activities of EASA and the Agency’s overall contribution to making air travel safe. The launch is particularly timely as it coincides with the restart of flight operations in Europe,” said EASA Executive Director Patrick Ky.
