Following the commentary on the new Package Travel Directive, the Estoril Higher Institute for Tourism and Hotel Studies (ESHTE) has initiated another online project on tourism law in Europe. The collection, which is freely accessible online and will also be published in printed form as a loose-leaf edition, provides a valuable overview of the laws relevant to travel and tourism in the various European states. The contributions come from renowned experts from the respective countries and partly also deal with very specific problems of travel and tourism law. Michael Wukoschitz from the law firm Kornfeld Wukoschitz Cernochova had the honour of contributing the chapter on Austrian tourism law.
A Collcetive Commentary on the new Package Travel Directive, a joint project in two volumes, will be presented in an online ceremony on 21 October. In the first volume, more than 30 authors from different EU Member States comment on the provisions of the Directive, while the second part contains articles on the implementation of the Directive in the Member States. The book provides a Europe-wide overview of the new package travel law, sheds light on it from a variety of perspectives and thus contributes to a supranational understanding, which is of particular importance due to the fully harmonising nature of the Directive. All authors are proven experts in travel law. Michael Wukoschitz of Kornfeld Wukoschitz Cernochova was invited to contribute a commentary on Article 14 of the Directive and on the implementation of the Directive in the Austrian Package Travel Act (PRG).
