28 May, 2018

European Commission DG for Mobility and Transport Henrik Hololei, speaking on CAPA TV, emphasised (17/18-May-2018) the European Single Aviation Market and open skies policies "has been working very well". He said: "Europe has been also a great contributor, but also a great beneficiary from the open skies policies". Mr Hololei however stated the EU is now "taking steps in creating another very important landmark agreement, namely between the EU and ASEAN", which concerns a market of 1.1 billion people. He concluded: "We are very optimistic that by the end of this year we could see an agreement emerging... Which, would then be, I would say, the second most important agreement that the EU has had". [more - CAPA TV]
