Goals / Remit

Our goal is uniting European airlines to take forward changes that will increase our competitiveness and result in lower fares and more choice for passengers.

A4E will campaign on at least four important measures:

1.Lowering the cost of the EU’s airports by ensuring that monopoly airports are effectively regulated; ensuring that passengers receive the full benefit of the commercial revenues which they generate at airports and ensuring that security charges are efficient.

2.Delivering reliable and efficient airspace by reducing the cost of Air Traffic Control (ATC) provision through completion of the Single European Sky and better economic regulation at EU level; ensuring that ATC strikes do not cause disruption to passengers across Europe; using new technology to make efficiency savings; and using SESAR funding to drive compliance with the Single Sky framework.

3. Stimulating more economic activity and jobs by creating the right regulatory environment, removing unreasonable taxes.

4. Making Air Passenger Rights simple and clear by providing clarity to the EC Regulation 261/2004; advocating politicians to limit the recourse to both national and EU Courts for interpretation of the Regulation.
