Europe’s Aviation Relations With The World: Towards Multilateralism

The EU has played a vital leadership role in aviation in Europe and the North Atlantic and, increasingly, globally. In recent years the face of the airline industry has changed rapidly, with new entrants, new airline types and new aircraft all contributing to a very different environment compared with 20 years ago. The panel will review the extent and relevance of these developments and discuss where the industry – and its regulation – might be heading.

  • Parallel Regulations: revising Regulation 868/2004
  • Ambitions, challenges and milestones
  • Ownership and control limitations – encouraging investment into airlines and infrastructure
  • Economic benefits (Passenger and Cargo) of liberalisation and deregulation
  • EU-Middle East relations: open markets or limited flights?
