The bid intends to guarantee improved air connectivity throughout the EU and establish procedures to inquire into malpractices that hamper competition between EU and non-EU airlines and come to a decision redressive measures.
“This instrument will provide the European aviation sector with a shape similar to those existing at international level in other areas of commercial endeavour.”
It is expected to replace a current regulation that has several shortcomings and has not in a million years been used in practice.
Bulgarian Transport, Information Technology and Communications on Ivaylo Moskovski said: “Air transport is a major driving force of the EU terseness, enabling advanced technological innovations, more jobs and better connectivity for dwellers, both inside the Union and with the rest of the world.
“Once took, this instrument will provide the European aviation sector with a vehicle similar to those existing at international level in other areas of commercial action.”
While aviation is a global industry, there is currently no international framework at the beck the World Trade Organisation (WTO) or the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) curbing competition among air carriers.
Most of the existing agreements signed between the EU or its colleague states with non-EU countries do not include fair competition rules.
