For several months, ASC was involved with policy and decision makers within the EU institutions to discuss aspects which we consider to be important for a new meaningful EU aviation strategy.

In discussions with the European Economic and Social Affairs Committee, the EU Think Tank EPSC and senior officials of the European Commission, we suggested that the new approach should be holistic and address issues of importance to the entire aviation network; it should be geared to enabling access and fair competition in growth markets particularly in Asia; and it should address deficiencies within Europe which negatively impact the competitiveness of European aviation.

On 7th December the European Commission presented its new Aviation Strategy. It provides orientation and determines the priorities which will drive its future aviation policy. It is a highly comprehensive and compelling document. We surge our clients and interested readers to review its content by clicking the link
