  Add to Calendar 2020-02-25 9:00 2020-02-26 16:00 Europe/Paris 13th Florence Air Forum - Review of Regulation (EC) No 1008/2008 on the Operation of Air Services in the EU

Regulation 1008/2008 (the Air Services Regulation ) is the basic legal act organising the EU internal market for air services. It was adopted in 2008 as the legal successor of the three aviation packages , which have progressively established the EU internal aviation market.

As announced in its 2015 Aviation Strategy, the Commission carried out an evaluation of the Regulation and published in July 2019 a Commission report. The objective of this evaluation was to provide insight into the actual performance of the Air Services Regulation and its overall intended and unintended impacts. As a follow up to this evaluation, the Commission (Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport) launched a study to help it assess whether further measures could contribute to a well-functioning internal aviation market and its global competitiveness, while also contributing to the protection of consumer interest and to safeguarding high EU safety, social and environmental standards.

In this context, the Commission together with the Florence School of Regulation’s Transport Area is co-organising a workshop on the Air Services Regulation to exchange views on the refined policy options. The discussions will take place in the following thematic sessions : i) ownership and control, ii) operating license and principal place of business and temporary licence, iii) applicable labour law and competent jurisdiction, iv) leasing, v) price transparency, vi) traffic distribution rules and vii) public service obligations. At the same time, the workshop will provide an opportunity for a discussion on the Air Services Regulation in the context of the Commission’s Green deal.

This event is only upon invitation.
