Third aviation package
The European Commission published a proposed Regulation on common rules for the operation of air transport services in the Community on 18 July 2006. It consolidates and updates three existing regulations concerning the liberalisation of air transport in the European Union. These are known collectively as the ‘third aviation package’ and date from 1992. They set out common rules for the operation of air transport in the Union.
The Government agrees the need to review the operation of the regulatory regime set out in the third package. Our aim in negotiating this dossier is to ensure that the final Regulation aids the proper functioning of the internal aviation market and delivers real benefits, for consumers and operators. We will be consulting widely with stakeholders to obtain their views.
Key documents and consultation papers will be posted here as the negotiation process proceeds.
