European Union External Competence and External Relations in Air Transport is an essential guide for all those interested in the development of European Union external relations in general and in the field of air transport in particular. Part I of the book offers a detailed analysis of the EU's internal and external competence in air transport and related topics, taking into account the amendments introduced by the Single European Act and the Treaty on European Union. A new vision is proposed of the development of external competence in air transport and a new classification of the Community's secondary legislative measures in this area. Part II offers a detailed analysis of the EU's external relations in air transport, including an analysis of the Air Transport Agreement with Norway and Sweden, the extension of the trans-European transport network, and the inclusion of air transport in recently concluded association and trade agreements. The many problems facing external relations, and the future prospects for such relations, are revealed. Community participation in civil aviation organizations is also discussed.

State intervention in air transport is omnipresent. Airlines, in particular, are major beneficiaries of State aid. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the law regulating State aids to airlines, which includes sections on Articles 107 TFEU and 108 TFEU as well as an overview of legal issues raised by air transport and competition in the EU, in particular deregulation and its consequences. EU Law on State Aid to Airlines follows a multi-disciplinary approach by relying on the fundamental concepts of economics and policy analysis. This approach allows grasping the wider implications of this sector's issues for the field of State Aid, in particular in the light of the 'more economic approach' and the 'balancing test'. Furthermore, additional perspective is given on State aid law in the air transport sector through comparative analyses of regulations in the United States and Switzerland and outlooks on international relations. Finally, the book presents a number of recent Commission decisions with a dramatic importance for the air transport, with the opening of formal investigation procedures regarding alleged State aid to low-cost airlines operating from regional airports all over Europe. Magnus Schmauch is Legal Secretary at the EFTA Court in the Chambers of judge Pall Hreinsson. Previous experience includes four years as a lawyer at the Court of Justice of the European Union. He has published a large number of articles on State aid and other fields of EU law and teaches on EU law and fundamental rights at the University of Lund, Sweden.
It is the source of important economic stimuli for local economic development. This book examines the current state of European airlines - mainly, but not exclusively, those within the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA).
Author: Kenneth Button
Airlines, like most industries, contain a mixture of good and badly managed companies (and perhaps more important, lucky and unlucky companies). More important in the longer-run is the institutional structure in which the companies offer their services. Air transport is a major industry in its own right. But it is also the fastest growing mode of transport for both passengers and freight, a large employer of labour, at the forefront of many technological developments and often a pioneer in adopting such innovations. It is the source of important economic stimuli for local economic development. This book examines the current state of European airlines - mainly, but not exclusively, those within the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA). It seeks in particular to determine if the current institutional structure provides a sustainable basis for the continued vitality of air transport as a facilitator of economic development, and it can serve as an input into wider matters involving the social and political integration within Europe. It also includes material on airports, slots and security. It provides the opportunity to look at factors that currently influence the efficiency of European airlines and to see how the industry has moved to meet these challenges. The book is also designed to be accessible with a glossary at the end, definitions of key terms and concepts, a list of abbreviations and acronyms and two annexes that provide more details of the European air transport market within the wider international regulatory system. The readership includes all concerned with airline and airport management, including regulators and government departments of transportation, and researchers in air transport. While of main interest to those in Europe, it is also important to all who are dealing with similar questions in other continents, and all concerned with inter-continental air transport provision. In the current aviation context the key features of the book are: "

Air Transport and the European Union examines the emergence of the EU as a major actor in aviation. It investigates how the EU was able to develop a common policy despite the existence of an established sectoral regime and against the opposition of most European states and their 'flag carriers'.
First published in 2000, this volume examines the role of industry representation in the EU in the case of the air transport industry.
Author: Dinos Kyrou
First published in 2000, this volume examines the role of industry representation in the EU in the case of the air transport industry. Air transport has contributed to areas including member state interdependence, national defence in foreign policy considerations and national identity in terms of 'flag carrier' airlines. Dinos Kyrou looks at specific case studies concerning aspects of integration of the air transport sector within the European Union. These case studies - an examination of a European Commission Proposal for a Council Directive and the attempt by the Commission to formulate a Proposal for a Council Regulation - are stages in the process of policy formulation which are aimed at enhancing the liberalisation which was completed de jure in 1992. In both cases, the increasing prominence of the Competition Directorate of the European Commission (DGIV) has been evident. Kyrou's question is whether this reflects a restoration or a creation of pride and self.
The following three volumes form the common thread throughout the research: - General overview of the European Air Transport Market (2016-2019); - Key trends; - Strategic overview.
The European Commission launched a study to examine the economic developments of the EU Aviation Market and, consequently, to serve as a supporting document for the development of the new Aviation Policy pursued in the European Union. Its main goal is to examine the main developments in the EU aviation sector during the period 2016-2019, including the identification of important events and trends having an influence on aviation, so as to provide the European Commission with an explanatory view on the ongoing evolution of the EU Aviation Market. The key points examined in the course of this investigation are as follows: - The evolution of the European air transport market between 2016 and 2019; - Assessment of the impact of the Aviation Strategy launched by the Commission in December 2015 on the market; - Identification of market trends up to 2025; - Highlighting the factors that could have an impact on this trend. Throughout the research, it was important to link past developments to the Aviation Strategy launched in December 2015 by the European Commission in relation with the four priority areas: - To place the EU as leading player in international aviation, on the basis of a level playing field; - Facilitate growth in the aviation sector and the wider economy; - Secure high EU standards; - Support innovation, the spread of digital technologies and investment in the aviation sector. Egis and SEO have adopted an approach in which close collaboration, clear communication and the combination of both quantitative and qualitative analysis result in obtaining the outcomes that will be described in the following sections. Each section addresses a specific part of the study and assesses the impact of the subject on the aviation sector. The following three volumes form the common thread throughout the research: - General overview of the European Air Transport Market (2016-2019); - Key trends; - Strategic overview. The examination of past developments in the aviation sector will allow the Commission to further refine its Aviation Policy for the coming years and bring it as closely as possible into line with the needs of European air transport market. Furthermore, the strategic analysis reveals factors which could have an impact on European aviation in the coming years, enabling the European Commission to anticipate and further minimise the impact of these events. The COVID-19 outbreak came at the final stages of this study and therefore it was not possible to fully include additional analysis covering COVID-19 developments to the work-plan. Obviously COVID-19 is having a major impact on transport and connectivity in the EU. Measures to contain the outbreak have resulted in a dramatic reduction in transport activity, especially in passenger transport. Air traffic received a major hit since the start of the pandemic and there are still a lot of uncertainty on the extent of effects of COVID to the whole air transport sector.

The first comparative study of the complicated history of relations between the state and the air transport industry in Europe, this book travels from the earliest scheduled flights down to the era of liberalization and privatization in the 1990s. Martin Staniland concentrates on four key countries-France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom-exploring both the sources of support for airlines in Europe and the reasons why public ownership lost favor as the industry expanded. The author concludes by considering the crises and restructuring experienced by national airlines in the 1980s and 1990s, and by exploring the related political battles over liberalization and privatization.
