EU to expand air transport agreements with ASEAN, UAE, Qatar, Turkey


The European Commission will negotiate comprehensive air transport agreements first with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
This is the first European Union (EU) bloc-to-bloc aviation agreement and will later cover the UAE, Qatar and Turkey, reports London's Air Cargo News.
All agreements are directed at allowing market development and growth based on common rules and transparency said the Transport Council, made up of ministers of the EU member states.
Melanie Schultz van Haegen, the Netherlands minister for infrastructure and the environment and chairwoman of the transport council meeting, said: "Europe is showing leadership in its external aviation policy with a balanced approach consisting of market opening based on fair and transparent market conditions."
The commission will carry out the negotiations on behalf of the EU and its member states.
Said Association of European Airlines CEO Athar Husain Khan: "AEA has been actively contributing to the work of the European Commission and will remain committed to promoting the European airlines?position during the negotiations.
"AEA also urges the forthcoming Slovak presidency [of the EU] to continue the discussions on external aviation policy and to grant additional negotiating mandates with Mexico, the other Gulf countries and Armenia," said Mr Khan.
