Aviation associations highlight value of Single Aviation Market

Posted 23 March 2017 · Add Comment

Today nine associations wuithin the aviation sector issued a declaration to remind people of the EU's achievements within air transport and the role of the Single Aviation Market since it was established by the EU during the 1990s, which removed regulatory and market barriers and created a fully integrated market for aviation, based on common rules across the EU and beyond.

They say that this has been instrumental in increasingly connectivity and prosperity – as it provided greater access to markets and lowered prices for air travel and air freight services.

The nine associations behind this initiative - ACI Europe, ASD, A4A, CANSO, EBAA, EHA, ERAA, IACA and industriAll - represent the aerospace industry, airlines, airports, business aviation, helicopter operators, air navigation service providers and trade unions. In view of the important role and value that the Single Aviation Market plays in the economic development and social cohesion of the EU, these stakeholders from across the entire spectrum of aviation say today made this united declaration to stand up for the EU's Single Aviation Market.

“As businesses and together with our employees, we cannot afford to lose the freedom, legal certainty, connectivity and prosperity enabled by the Single Aviation Market. We are mindful that these essential benefits are intrinsically linked to the wider political endeavours and dynamics of the EU. This is why we are calling on Member States to preserve, reform and strengthen the EU.”

The declaration is being sent to all EU-27 heads of government and transport ministers, as well as to the EU institutions. It is also published today in the European edition of weekly newspaper, POLITICO.
