EU News 370/2015
Brussels, 7 December 2015
Today the European Commission adopted a new Aviation Strategy for Europe, a milestone initiative to boost Europe's economy, strengthen its industrial base and reinforce its global leadership position. These are three core priorities of President Jean-Claude Juncker, on which the Strategy will deliver, by ensuring that the European aviation sector remains competitive and reaps the benefits of a fast-changing and developing global economy. A strong and outward-looking aviation sector will not only benefit businesses, but also European citizens by offering more connections to the rest of the world at lower prices.
1. Place the EU as a leading player in international aviation, whilst guaranteeing a level playing field.
2. Tackle limits to growth in the air and on the ground.
3. Maintain high EU standards.
4. Make progress on innovation, digital technologies and investments.
