Airlines unite to demand improved EU aviation rules

Rival European airline bosses are due in Brussels today in a rare display of unity to lobby for improved aviation rules.

The chief executives of Europe’s five largest airline groups – Air France-KLM, easyJet, International Airlines Group, Lufthansa Group and Ryanair – are to outline their shared vision for a new EU aviation strategy.

The five respective chief executives – Alexandre de Juniac, Carolyn McCall, Willie Walsh, Carsten Spohr and Michael O’Leary – are to meet for the first time to work together to in lobbying for the development of a new strategy.

They want to see the new regulations support growth and jobs across Europe and give passengers lower fares and more choice.

The meeting takes place in response to the new EU transport commissioner Violeta Bulc’s consultation on the new strategy.

Etihad Airways yesterday presented its demands to the EU in the form of a detailed submission calling for “bold, exciting and world-leading” reforms to improve competition and consumer choice, tackle infrastructure constraints and promote open skies.
