Germany - Pilot’s dismissal at 65 is justifiable - August 31, 2017

Flight instructor Werner Fries took his case to a labour court in 2013 after his employer, Lufthansa, ended his contract when he turned 65 years, in line with EU law that forces passenger airline pilots to retire at 65. The court referred the case to the Court of Justice of the European Union, which ruled that the action is legal and can be justified by the aim of ensuring civil aviation safety in Europe.
