AIRLINE ASSOCIATIONS CALL FOR IMPROVEMENTS IN THE AREA OF AIRPORT CHARGES  (19 May 2014). Today, the European Commission published its report on the implementation of the Airport Charges Directive. The Commission rightly acknowledges some of the weaknesses in the current Directive, the problems associated with its transposition into national law and, ultimately, its implementation at local level.

The Commission is proposing that instead of the emissions from all flights forming part of EU ETS, the scheme should cover only a small proportion of emissions. The EU Parliament should reject the Commission proposal.  view...

 

 

EU COMMISSION COMPROMISES ENVIRONMENTAL INTEGRITY OF EU ETS (18 October 2013).

The European airspace users' associations are united in condemning the strike by French air traffic controllers (ATCOs) planned for tomorrow, 10 October.
