General and business aviation on the Commission’s agenda

As stated by the EU Press Room, “Today, the European Commission has adopted an agenda for general and business aviation in Europe. For the first time since the creation of the EU internal aviation market, the Commission has studied this sector, quantified its value and identified the challenges that it is facing. The Commission now proposes to integrate general and business aviation into the EU air transport policy. Improving data gathering, screening of legislation to ensure proportionality and integrating general and business aviation into the capacity optimisation initiatives are the main elements of this agenda.Vice-President Jacques Barrot, Commissioner for transport, said: ‘We fully recognise the value of non-commercial aviation and intend to work with this sector in Europe, as it is a large source of employment, expertise, technology and revenues’.”This Press Release is available in full text.
